What amblyopia looks like. Like a lazy eye but unlike a lazy eye It only goes “lazy” when tired or by my own will. Some people with amblyopia might have more significant misalignment. Amblyopia is a condition where a child’s eye begins to favor one over the other for one reason or another (often starting in infancy) causing a difference in vision between the two eyes significant enough to result in eye misalignment due to the brain turning the eye off to prevent double vision. People with amblyopia have poor depth perception (which requires two eyes working in harmony) and can’t view 3D very well. Other vision ailments may be involved as a possible reason for the brains favoritism such as cancer of the eye. Often times the cause of the favoritism isn’t known. Most folks with amblyopia are farsighted not nearsighted. Including myself. But I hate my glasses. :P

It’s important with new born babies to understand they are generally all farsighted. They say babies only see bouts at birth. “Yep that’s my mommy! That big blobby thing over there!” Lol and that doesn’t mean they have any vision problems. They’ll likely outgrow it.

P.s. yes I’m safe with my guns! XD when you live your life with vision deficits you’re brain finds a way. When shooting everyone uses their best eye to aim. That would be my eye staring right at you. My left eye. Also my farsightedness has yet to disable me from things. If anything it makes me a better shot since I don’t stand right in front of my target lol.

Face Reveal

What do you think guys? Can we make insomniac eyes trendy? Lol Seriousky though I have photos where my phone flash highlighted my insomnia eyes and my dad asked me who punched me. Wha? Punched me? These are just my eyes dad. He was like “oh man.” Gee thanks! Girl loves to hear that! 🙄

P.s. my shoulder tattoo was a bonding thing with my birth mom and half sister. Now it’s just a reminder that my mother ruined my life. Well she had a big part in it. She cost my sisters and grandparents. I got this tattoo in a basement by the way. My birth mom thought that made her “cool.” News flash. Cool moms are usually bad moms. It’s true.

P.s. I’m looking down at the camera because if I look straight ahead I look… like I have a heart shaped face. But I’m an oval lol. And it looked WEIRD. I was all chin and I hardly even have a chin! Okay to be fair I have more chin then when I weighed 280. But I forget it’s there. And still its not much lol.

I was born sick

That a actually might be a line from a song, the song just alludes me at this current moment. The #Weather is dreary, and messing with the #barometricpressure , so because I have #Hydrocephalus I feel like poop.

I don’t know what people go through when they become ill, it’s extremely hard to empathize, with them. I don’t know. I was born at #28weeks gestation, and 2lbs 4oz. I was also dxed with #CongenitalHydrocephalus , #Amblyopia , #Brainbleed and later, learning disabilities and cerebral palsy, #AntiphospholipidSyndrome and #Autism.

I have been wrongly dxed, and had pills shoved down my throat that made my feel zombified. I’ve spoken to my peers about why my head is shaved and why I have a gnarly scar on my head, or why I can’t participate in a sport.

But I don’t understand what it’s like to be normal and feel grief about being ill.

When I get a new dx, it’s just another bunch of signs and symptoms to watch out for.

And my main concern is, will this shorten my life span.

Most people I encounter have been dxed later in life, and they have no idea how to process pain, tiredness, taking pills, doctors visits... #Surgery, #Complications . None of it.

It’s just all so interesting from a ##spooniesincebirth
