"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)
"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."

More Eye Update
OK, the doc has figured out what's going on in my head.
Well, in my eye anyways. Doubt anyone will ever get the whole head thing, but that's another post.
In his exam yesterday, he said he found a "flash." I have no clue what a "flash" is. And good luck trying to find that on the web, at least if you don't like looking at pictures of trench coats and car windows with body parts hanging out.
His explanation was that I have "eyeritus" which is probably spelled wrong but means in real English that I have an inflammation of the muscles surrounding my eyeball. I think.
Then he mentioned that, after all, I have a foreign body in there. That would be the scleral buckle that was implanted 25 years ago.
First line of attack is going to be steriod eye drops. Wonder if they will make my eye fat?
Now, when you piece all this together, it means that my body is rejecting the buckle.
Man, I hope these drops work. This could get ugly.
