You know you’ve spent too much time doing “close up” work if you can’t even make out letters on the computer screen even with your glasses on…
You know you’ve been fighting headaches for a while when someone asks specifically how your headaches are doing (prayer partner kind of thing) and you have to think about it because you are so stinkin’ used to the headaches.
You know that you’ve got “something” that very few can see when “they” expect you to do what you used to do. And you can’t.
No matter how hard you try, your physical you won’t let you. And that’s different. And it hurts - often physically, but more often emotionally and that’s usually harder.
You know that you’re in good company when you think about guys like Richard and Merl and… (and I mean guys in a very non-gender term for people you are comfortable with.) and know that they will be reading and saying, “Yep.” Or whatever it is that the blokes up by them say.
You know you’re in good company when you can speak freely about real life.
Welcome, good company. The world needs more good company like us.
