Ack!  
I just found out that I have cataracts in both eyes. It's too early for surgery but it's something I'm supposed to be careful to monitor. Doc said she's seen people go from my stage to surgery in as little as six months--or it can take years. So if I start to have more blurred vision I am supposed to make an appointment to check it out. No glaucoma though I am at high-normal pressure. (I have a family history.)

Imagine not having health care and having glaucoma, which needs regular treatment to prevent blindness, or having cataracts that need surgery. Thank Goddess I am fortunate enough to have coverage. I feel for those who don't. I guess you're just supposed to go blind if you're poor.

i just thought of this, too. i can't add salt to my food. any of my food. i mean, really - today's foods come with way more than enough anyway. but i've been doing this since i was five years old. anyway. i'll have people tell me, "just use sea salt. it's better for you, anyway." what?
