I can only see about 6 inches in front of my face clearly. I have this blown up w/ Windows magnifier to 1050% and I can still barely see. Thank goodness for touch typing in school.
I went to bed and put my glasses in the usual place on my headboard shelf and woke up to them missing. I know they are in my bedroom somewhere but I can't find them. You kind of need to be able to see to find the things that can help you see. I have no friends in this town who can help me find them, or anyone I would feel comfortable seeing my bedroom in the state it is in. My mom comes home in two days and hopefully she can find them. Until then I need to be able to cope.
I have important e-mails that I need to be able to receive and respond to. I have a dog that needs taking care of. I can't walk her as I can't see to walk. Can anyone think of any solutions to help me on this.
Also how do I calm down? Not being able to see is a trigger of abuse to me and I am feeling extremely vulnerable and afraid.
Long shot question: I live in BC, Canada. I'm on disability they don't cover prescriptions. I am deep in debt. If no one can find my glasses do you know of a program that will help me buy some?
