say a prayer for me…. please…

I have advanced glaucoma in both eyes, it is not pleasant. I can see,  very blurry vision but the distance vision is closing in, It’s upsetting. As you know I am a Guide Dog owner too being visually impaired. I was looking forward to a peaceful retirement doing different things as you do when you retire but now it seems am coping on a day to day basis with practical issues relating to sight loss. I live on my own with no partner as divorced my husband  on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour and mental cruelty and had one relationship since which lasted six years. I wanted to get married again but he didn’t. I moved to Shrewsbury in Shropshire near my daughter which is nice but I think my mind map is better served where I lived before all my life in Essex. Apart from the pandemic I feel very lonely and anxious here most of the time. I never dreamed I would end up like this! So treasure those you love and be kind to them, don’t bully or turn your anger and frustrations on your family like my husband did to me and mine and treasure your good health and look after yourself, Things can change very quickly and you never know what’s round the corner if not another corner to turn. I didn’t always make the right decisions or take the right advice because I am only human after all. Wish me luck and say a little prayer for me please.

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
