Back in the day there used to be a a TV series called the “Bionic Man”. And sometimes that’s the way I felt because I couldn’t see very well.
Later on in life I developed other ailments that required medical intervention. For example about seven years ago I developed neuropathy in both feet. And now I wear braces which allow me to move around pretty well. But sometimes I feel sorry for myself because I at one time I could run for 15 miles.
Then my teeth got so bad that I had implants placed in my jaws. More artificial parts. I finally came to terms with a life of artificial parts. In fact I’m actually grateful because I realize how much better I have it than do so many others with similar conditions. Gratitude carries us a long way.
Oh, yeah, by the way, I found out friday that my next stop is for cataract surgery.
