Well it`s been a full year.
Our AMD support Group in Shoreham is running and now has about fifteen members.
Five years after joining Sound Tennis some of us are now playing outdoors at the Sussex County LTC and using normal yellow balls on normal tennis courts.
With my wife we are still really enjoying our allotment actively running it throughout the year. We have leeks, sprouts and purple sprouting broccoli growing well.
I have noticed a gradual move to primary colours with good contrasts with green.
We enjoy the large print Scrabble.
I`m pleased to say that along the routes I use that the paths all not clear of overhanging branches, so its easy to make up my target step goal particularly with watering the allotment.
Finally I have recently joined Sussex Sailability and taken up sailing again; an exciting physical and mental challenge as I relearn how to make the yacht go faster so that we can win races!
(For new readers, I am Registered blind as I have total loss of central vision and this coupled with Wet AMD in my left eye. It all started about eight or nine years ago)
It would appear that we have 65000 cells normally in use in each eye but only 6500 for peripheral vision. Wit two eyes combined this arithmetically means that we only have ONE per cent of our original vision.
As tine goes on I find I am more prepared to do things that I thought were impossible.
