flabbergasted

It all started last October. I got an email from my youngest brother (he’s 61, I’m 70) in which he told me about his having just been diagnosed with AMD. He described driving down the road and noticing that there was a blind spot in the middle of his vision. He’s never even worn glasses…

Why?

I went to my RS appointment this week for my first shot.  It was a stressful day.  I need to go back in 4 weeks.  I don’t understand how I went to see the optometrists every two years to get my eyes checked but no one ever told me I had AMD, well until a couple of weeks…
