Hey, I'm 15 and I might be going blind. I went to the eye care place in town today. Several months ago, I had been told be the DMV officer to get my
eyes checked again and to get new glasses. I followed the advice, or rather requirement. I waited for 2 hours and finally took the test, but rather
than just having my near-sightedness get worse, it seems the pressures in my eyes point towards another conclusion. The doctor said I may have
glaucoma. She said it was rare and unheard of for my age, but it may develop in a few years.
Now my parents seem to have a hard time believing this. Denying that its true and that I wont. It hurts me when they do this of course because denying
me what I should know is not the answer. I told them I didn't mind. I mean it is a terrible thing, going blind, but I will cope with it. After having
some many terrible things in my life, heartache, betrayal, among other things, I have learned to be optimistic. I dont know why, I just am now. Its
hard to look positive towards such a fate, but if it happens then it happens. I mean it isn't like there isn't treatment for this, though it only
slows the process.
