Houston, we have a problem.
I am having big trouble reading your blog responses. As many of you know, part of the optic neuritis assault is a loss of contrast. Words seem to fade off the page. I have been through this many times but never get used to it. Usually, I regain some sight but never make it back to the starting line. Some of your messages are long. Very long. There is no criticism here. This is frustrating because I appreciate how much you put into what you write and how much you care.
. When Christopher and Matt seemed to be talking past each other about emerging technologies, I kept attempting to reread what I could only half see. I brought nothing to the conversation. I find myself longing for a short response to a blog, something like, that sucks. I could pick that up pretty easily. I do not want to discourage full responses. All of you can read them, understand and respond to each other. That is so important to me.
Then there is the usual anger, which rears its ugly head in these situations. Many carry that around on our backs. MB writes, “I’m angry, resentful, and non-accepting, too.” I’ll see you and raise you. I am angry, resentful, non-accepting and very pessimistic. This enemy keeps advancing over the horizon like foot soldiers in old wars. Reminds me of WWII movies. But please keep writing. If I cannot make it through your thoughts and ideas, I will wait and see the movie.
