I realize it's been forever since I posted anything Here. Truth be told, I've had so much happen lately. Truth be told, everything seems to have changed, and I didn't even feel like the same person who used to post quizes and crap here. So I changed the layout (Death Note, my rabid obsession since May of last year. xD) and deleted my old posts. I could've just made a new account, but I'm fond of my 'Vera-Sama' persona.
I'm going to try and update here more often, and plan to use this account primarily muse on my various creative things. I may post little snippits and such here, as I usually tend to get an ida and write a scene or two right away. Don't be fooled however, i will continue to post personal things here as well.I need somewhere to let my feelings out, after all. I'll try to remember to label myposts so you can skip the personal crap if you so desire.
As for what's changed, if anyone still reads this that used to. I had eye surgery January of last year. I don't see any better (actually, my sight has gotten worse, I think) but my glaucoma is under control. No more drops and such. ^^ The downside was I had to drop my classes last spring because I was still recovering.
I started to go back last fall, but i was still having trouble seeing. And then my mother got sick. I dropped to stay home with her and take care of her and my grandmother. My mother went into the hospital on September 14, 2008, her birthday, and passed away on September 20. She had liver failure caused by her diabities and they said they found evidence of ovarian cancer. It was quite ard for my father and I to decide not to resessitate, bust she said before she didn't want that. When she started to have seizures, we had them take her off of the machines. She passed on just three days shy of the second anniversary of my brother Roger's, momma's oldest son's, death. Needless to say, september will be a difficult month for me for a few years, but I'll manage.
The hardest adjustment has been handling meals and chores. My father is completely blind, nd I am mostly blind, so neither of us drive. Thankfully, Bobbie takes me to run errands. When she can't, Sierra and her mother do. I'm thankful for my friends. My father does most of the household chores, and cooking falls to me. I'm slowly learning, bt e still eat a lot of take-out and frozen dinners. xD
For those who recall the years of agony caused by my brother and his wife living with us, they moved out a couple weeks after my mother died. They realized my father and I were sick and tired of dealing with them. They moved to Texas, and I haven' t heard from them since Christmas. It's...nice...to not be surrounded by tension and anger all the time.
I'm not back in school yet, but I intend to try and return for the fall. I'm considering changing majors, to what, I'm not sure, but as I said, i don't feel like the same person I used to be. I was able to stay a spoiled, secluded child for so long, and now I've had to grow up quickly. It's a difficult adjsutmeant, but I'm dealing. I'm goign to contact a local low vision center about taking classes such as 'home ec' and 'basic living for the blind'. I've also considered learning braille.
I suppose that's all for now. Thanks for reading, if anyone did. I promise to be far more active than I used to be. =^-^=
