I wanted to become a photographer. It's all I wanted and it's the only thing that would make me happy now. I've developed fears and phobias and problems but this is the one that is holding me back, meaning if I can't put this away for good, I will do nothing with my life and will enjoy nothing. I am 22. Physically healthy, not perfect but working on it.
I am afraid of losing my sight. Not so much now but later in life. And I'm afraid of it taking away what I love and want to spend every day of my life doing I read statistics and treatments, they should help me, glaucoma, cataracts, seem to be treatable to an extent, but then I read some things about AMD that paint a grim picture of inevitable blindness in my mind. I think Macular Disorder is my fear right now because it looks like it could make my fears come true.
You can tell me 1 in 25 people get sight problems and could tell me that 1 in 2 will die of something, and I'd still be terrified of blindness and fearless of the other thing.
I've lived like this for about a year now, and have lost hope of ever getting back to normal, or having the confidence in the future to get on with things. Does anyone have any advice what so ever?
