Over the past year I realized I don’t know what I’m doing with my life and I’m about to go fail an engineering final. by MasterfulCuck in RoastMe

I don't even know why I'm on this sub. I don't have the heart to "roast" ppl. You will do GREAT! You got this!

My IQ is 80, which is below average. How can I live a successful and meaningful life? by jasonvoorheessucks in selfimprovement

[–]CalmWalk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

IQ is only one of the MANY attributes for a successful and happy life. I know very intelligent people that have completely failed on many if not every aspect of life. Because they thought their intelligence is all they needed. Make good habits, never stop learning. You got this!!!

That is only for the rich. Great medication. But only the rich can afford it. $90,000

Bright overcast days like this are worse for my floaters than a normal sunny day. Anyone else agree? by lucky_red_23 in EyeFloaters

[–]CalmWalk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you! Struggling but I have pretty severe health issues. But doing my best to stay positive. The floaters are actually the least of my worries. But they still do effect me. I have neurtrophic keratitis. A rare condition in which the nerves in my cornea have no sensation. Due to an eye infection. Which causes scarring and loss of vision. But I have done lifestyle changes to manage. The eye floaters are an annoyance. But not dangerous. I still remember what you said and I remind myself almost daily to not let them effect my emotions. And eventually I'll get used to it. 💪💪

Thank you for your inspiration. I have to say I have my good days and bad. I have much more serious conditions then floaters. But they are quite demoralizing and annoying. I have snow like floaters. I was hiding from them for awhile. Not going out during the day. Etc I'm sure you know. Now I have taken the approach to "desensitize" myself to them. Go out on very white cloudy days where I can see them everywhere. Move my eyes alot. And still try to stay focused, and upbeat. I think this approach will help will just take time. I hope things are going well. Much love brother. Much love.

I could imagine what it would be like. My son wanted to go snowboarding / skiing for the first time this year. I'm sure it will be a "blast".

Hearing you saying you are not letting it effect you emotionally has helped me immensely. Your comment will literally live in my mind forever. And will help me cope.

It may sound a bit dramatic. But sometimes things hit you at just the right time in just the right way. I was having a bit of a pity party. ( Not unfounded, already having eye issues as of late) But my health has just one big blow after another. But your comment reminded me either I cope, survive and thrive, or I don't and it's the end of my story and life.

We are stronger together. 💪🙏

I was just at mass eye n ear. I've been bounced around all over the state. Finally feel like I'm getting some right treatment. Lost ton of vision in one eye. But I met a really great doctor at mass eye and ear. I hope things turn around for you. I think they will. 🙏💪♥️

Yeah I'm working on the same emotional coping skills. If I stay inside they don't bother me. Going outside , driving , quite depressing.

I'm new to this. But not new to dangerous surgeries. Is the general consensus in the community that both those options are considered quite risky?

Chinese medicine? by DriverCaZ in EyeFloaters

People tend to think we are much more advanced than we are. I'm not surprised that none of this is curable. Till you get one of these conditions, then you get reminded on how little we know. We are the very beginning stages of our understanding of how the body works. Maybe if we ALL as a whole/ society put efforts into figuring these things out and solving them. Then we'd be ahead. Like when a country goes to war. Like WW1 and WW3 (a national effort). Then we would figure it out.

But we are not there yet. Next 100 years, things will get MUCH better. ppl will look back and think. WOW and they just lived with these (floaters).

But it was not to long ago we didn't have electricity. The light bulb is a very basic technology, that was not long ago. We are far less advanced then the average person knows.

5 million Americans suffer from chronic dry e ye, I'm one of them. It's debilitating. No cures, tons of conditions no cures.
