I have decided that I stay positive, proactive and happy, everything else is looked after by my patron saint “San Fairy Anne”
So I try to be sociable, I try to help people at the AMD support group, I do speaking engagements for the macular Society.
I play tennis or rather I try to play tennis because it’s sociable it keeps me fit and because it forces me to train my eyes to follow the ball accurately. This has been dramatic in helping me get the most out of my eyes.
My wife and I love our allotment a we love being with our family..
I also go for walks out of the Downs and walks along the beach. I go to my favourite restaurants and cafes.
My right-hand man in achieving all these things is my smartphone. It’s a moto X from Motorola and it runs the best version of Android I’ve seen yet.
The latest version has larger text which is adopted by all the apps on the system and phenomenally it now has text to speech.
I love music and have a wide selection all on my smartphone and that collection is available to my hearing aids through Bluetooth connection as is my use of the TV. As I said phenomenal.
Oh yes by the way I’ve just had my 19th injection for wet AMD. Wonderful. It’s like opening the curtain.
