Been trying to type, but my speed is nonexistent.

And with constant double vision, it really bringing down.
And all my work skills require vision, typing and standing.
Top it off, my appointment is June 12th. All I can do is set here and wait to see if they can revues this.
I'm feeling really alone right now.

1. Have you tried closing one eye? If it works, get a patch.

That worked for me years ago when I would get alcohol induced double vision. I don't do that anymore and haven't for coming up on 34 years.

3. Yes.

But, I need two eyes to work a video camera properly and keep an eye on a sales floor. 😢

6. Have. It makes my eyes feel better, but doesn't help the vision.

5. Watching the days go by and everything taking it's/their oun sweet time...

Makes it hard. Trying to get help from the state, hoping the doctor will have a cancellation....it's hard to keep my hopes up.
Don't know why the state has yet to clear me food at least SNAP?

7. Have you been getting any help with social services?

It must be difficult filling out all the forms when you can't see well.

8. Not yet.

I keep getting the run around. I struggle to get to the office (I really should find a way to get a cane), do the paperwork, and told to wait for a letter. Still waiting for it. I've called to find out where they are in looking into it and they tell me they are backed up.
A few years ago when I was on the street, I went and got help same day!
