Old Story – New Version
Thursday, January 14, 2021
Once again I am having significant eye trouble. Once again, my doctor has insisted I limit my computer time. I am not very happy about this as you can imagine.
He says the amount of time I am spending on the internet is significantly harming my eyes, by causing eye strain and fatigue. I spend 4 to 6 hours a day on Sparkpeople, sometimes more. Reading blogs, trying to care for my teams. Sending out goodies for my teams. With the number of friends I have, over 700, (I love all my spark friends), I am spending hours a day reading and commenting on blogs. Dr says it must stop.
I have tried so hard to be an active team leader and a present and supportive friend. I simply must protect my eyes though.
James says I should give up Spark. And yes, he does know how much it means to me. He says I must come first and my eyes are more important. He is right, so is my doctor. I have fought my doctor over this before, but this time I feel I simply must do what he says. This last episode with my eyes was terrifying. I will still be using Spark to track my food and exercise as I feel it is the best thing I can use for this. But I will not be able to interact much anymore, if at all. The most important thing in the world to me is tracing my family tree, so what computer time I am allowed will be spent on that. (I will try to make a short blog with pictures when my cabin is finally finished)
I will be leaving my teams. I hate to, but I really have no choice.
Spark Love to all
