Eye floaters are loose cells which detach from the inside of the eye and form strands that can sometimes affect your vision. They appear increasingly with age and sometimes not much can be done about them. Sometimes they resolve on their own but in more extreme cases laser may be required to get rid of them.

I currently have such a situation in my left eye where the cell strand is just annoying enough to be distracting but not impairing to my vision.

If any of you have this keep an eye out (pun intended) and see an optometrist if it becomes untenable.


  1. Got 'em in both eyes, hate 'em, and so far they're not able to do anything with them. I get checked annually by an Opthalmologist annually, ever since the PVD (Posterior Vitreous Detachments) back in 2010 and 2015. Maybe next time there will be something which will work. Meanwhile, vision is about 20/25 and the floaters are not a problem, just annoying.

    Good luck with yours...


    1. They're so annoying aren't they Mandy?

    2. Indeed they are. Brother in law had them before he passed. He kept saying he saw bugs crawling on the walls and floors...people were beginning to wonder because there were no bugs. I enlightened both Bob and the nursing home he was in...and he was thrilled to know he wasn't going crazy.

How times have changed.

Whereas transition was something not to even contemplate for us, here is a young trans person who felt the opposite pressure. She looks and sounds extremely passable but decided it wasn't for her despite the social media presence of young transitioners potentially inspiring her to.

We are all different and I happen to think she's rather a smart cookie as well...

my last post

This will be my last post.

When I wrote recently that this blog had another seven years of life in it I was trying to convince myself that it was true. It was in fact a little bit of self delusion.

With almost 3,000 posts to date I have accomplished what I set out to do which was to heal myself and in the process share some of the struggle I had been through with others on the chance they might find some value in my words. After seven years of writing, my life still isn't perfect; no one's is. But I have discovered a path forward completely free of the trappings which society would have had me adopt so I could fit in.

Over the last 25 years of my life I have turned over every stone I could find while exploring this topic and in the process realized that we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of this deeply complex subject. What I have ultimately learned is that my instincts have more value than what someone who isn't gender dysphoric writes about me. We are very …

feeling sexy

Here are the results of a recent survey of genetic women:

“A new hairdo, walking in heels and a glowing tan are among the things that make a woman feel sexy. Freshly applied lipstick, newly-shaved legs and a little black dress also have a positive effect on the psyche”

Are you surprised? I’m not because it is exactly the same list that makes transgender women feel sexy.

For a long time the idea was pandered about that transsexualism was rooted exclusively in aberrant sexuality. But of course you cannot separate the sexuality from the individual because that forms part of their overall makeup and the fact that genetic and transsexual women overlap here surprises no one.

We should also add here that women aren't always thinking about sex and neither are transgender women.

Pre transition transsexuals would not readily admit they found these things sexy because they were afraid to be seen as perverted men in front of gatekeepers who understood nothing about their condition.

Today we kn…
