    So my sis(Jirel) is reading Uhall aloud to me, yeah that's right I can't see well enough to read ATM. I was compelled to dictate this post to Jirel. Since just before Thanksgiving I've been fighting a eye infection and inflammation. I'm sorry but peoples whining and complaining around here just makes me want to SHAKE YOU HARD! You should be greatful you can get on the computer play UO, read this forum and do all things everyone likes to do on the internet.

    since going to an opthamologist my vision is so much clearer, I was going to a medical doctor. It's been like looking though a dense thick fog, I can make out shapes, color, light and dark. I was scared I was going blind. I repair computers for a living, and I was seeing my livelyhood being taken from me.

    Imagine facing the possibility of having to relearn EVERYTHING you know. Its scary. My best Christmas gift came on December 23rd, when the opthamologist told me this was treatable and reversable!! I went back yesterday and they saw marked improvement. I have a month and 1/2 of treatment ahead of me.

    Please instead of whining and complaining about some piece of pixel crack you didn't get from the Dev team, BE GREATFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO PLAY UO!! I came close to losing that. Nothing can compare to the gift of sight!

    PS-I don't want any sympathy, I want people to THINK about the gifts the already have, be greatful and try not to be so selfish.

    Honestly, this is TOTALLY a rant & spiel, and as such belongs in that forum.

    perhaps it is, canary, and maybe it will be moved

    Luc, glad treatment is going well


    canary, after the reply to this, and the rude comments to the person that decorated the Brit bank made by you, I'm guessing you didn't find what you wanted under the Christmas tree

    LOL
    IT's less of a S&R post than most made on UHall. Wow!
    Valium time for more than just me, it seems :lick:

    My blu ray player, gps system, 150 dollar gift card at Urban Outfitters and 500 dollars in cash tends to disagree with you. :p

    Ty Devs. I didn't mean it to come off that way.

    I get so flusterated hear people complain because they didn't get some piece of pixel crack. I'm just glad I can SEE pixel crack at all.

    I wish I could conve how scary its been. You don't realize how you depend on you senses everyday till one of them starts to fail.

    I have noticed my hearing has become sharper. LOL Jirel can no long sneak upon me!

    BTW, who needs a reader program I have "Jirel Speak". She adds her own smart aleck comments and I can whack her on the head if she "messes" up too much. LOL (Jirel: OWWW!)

    I'm glad to hear that things are looking brighter, both literally and figuratively.

    Perhaps Jirel should read to you from the less volatile of our boards for a while. The various professions board and maybe the players corner :)

    Glad things are on the mend for you...

    ...just ignore those who feel your post is out of place here, and remember some just aren't happy unless they can troll others. ;)

    Canary,

    You are exactly the SPOILED MATERIALISTIC type of person, I am talking to.

    You think the whole world is about what you can get, ie you material items.


    Well think about this to a BLIND person a GPS is useless, so is a Blu-ray player(what good is high-def if you can not SEE IT?) Please csend me your 500 dollars cash to pay my bills SINCE I HAVEN"T BEEN ABLE TO WORK SINCE BEFORE THANKSGIVING.


    Just remember Canary: Karma is B****. If you kick a blind man, then one day YOU will become the blind man and be kicked.

    I am greatful my sight isn't lost permanatly.
