Winning against AMD
This document is about recovering from your initial shock and then doing something about it. It is my story, it is what I have learned to do, it is about passing on these ideas, it is about enabling you to recover your self-reliance, your resilience and your self-confidence..
The secret is in the WINS you can mark up.
I start with a terrifying example of what can happen; Watch our (Macular Society) new video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfGlf_jlWeI.
I was appalled and I mean absolutely appalled, by this lady`s experiences, after just five years, though you can get to the severe state in just two years.
Personally I have survived for nine years so far and I an still playing tennis even though I have total loss of central vision. (Writing this book is already damaging my sight so I will need to limit my working time.)
The real answer is to stop AMD from starting in the first place or to find a cure. This will probably take a long time, may be ten to twenty years. In the meantime we have a real day to day problem we need to deal with.
I am therefore detailing everything that has contributed to my present outcome.
Please get medical advice as to any allergies or other risks.
Practical Steps, every achievement is a WIN.
You can rebuild your self-reliance, resilience and self-confidence.
