precious sight.

Last Update: April 09, 2019

Hey everyone,

Is there anyone who do not value their precious sight?

Well, I sure do!

Two posts ago I wrote about how blessings are awesome and I didn't have an inkling that I was scheduled for another that would bring clarity to my life.

The blessing was continued precious sight, but I had to take prompt action to make it happen.

Let me tell you a little story about my journey because anything worth having requires action.

For those that do not know, I am a top affiliate working with a severe irreversible eye condition called glaucoma. It's one of the health conditions I manage and at times things go wacky.

This time, the eye strain, lack of rest and constant worries took a toll on mybody and the malady expressed itself through my eyes full blown.

I was a wreck and I kept it all to myself because I was ashamed of not taking better care of myself.

It wasn't until blood started to ooze from my only good eye, I knew something had to be done right away.

Well, I did journey from the Virgin Islands to Florida with the help of a dear friend to receive medical care which involved a 2 to 3 hours eye surgery.

Thank God it was a success and I am back home in recovery.

My situation is ticklish and requires REST, MEDICINE, EXCELLENT NUTRITIVES AND UNWAVERING FOCUS ON MY HEALTH.

As a result, my plans to participate in the Super Super Affiliate Challenge 2019 can not be done. I will continue the training at a comfortable pace though.

As I withdraw graciously effective today from the Super Affiliate Challenge 2019, my advice to all affiliates is to take care of their precious sight.

Without sight your dreams will be harder to accomplish.



Thank you for understanding and reading with me today.

Blessings always

Maxine

Maxine, I understand your decision and accept it. You are working with your health right now and nothing is more precious. I know this as I did not see anything but color and shadows for many years. Four experimental eye surgeries later I had vision like I never new before. Still not like others, but I have adapted and really, I don't know any better. This is the best I have ever had! :)
You will heal and what a true blessing you were able to receive help. I will send positive healing energy your way and wish you the best. Glad you are not leaving WA. Hugs. Linda

Thank you Linda for the comforting words.

I am not alone because WA is my family too. I am here to stay because of genuine love.

I was scared at furst but not now.

Our path with eye issues are similar and we were healed by the grace of the Almighty.

Onwards and Upwards

Hi Maxine

Thank you for the advice of taking better care of our eyes and overall health.

I'm taking it very seriously because I have tended to go slack in the last few months and felt my body protesting in some areas.

May your precious sight be preserved and your business continue to flourish.

Cheers!

Sorry you have such troubles. Some of us take everything for granite and don't realize how much they have in life already.

Take a look at the picture I choose for my profile, my great-granddaughter and her favorite of our six dogs. His name is Hercules, nick name Herkey-Turkey and she just calls him Turkey.

How much value do you think my wife and I place on her? I can tell you all the riches in the world are not even close to her value.

Lets be THANKFULL for WHAT we do have.

Hope your recovery is completely successful. Thanks Wayne

So sorry Maxine but you seem like a strong lady that needs no pity from anyone! I trust & believe that you will rise up like the Phoenix to become a Super Affiliate in your own time! And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!
Praying for the healing hand of God to bless you!

Maxine,
I am glad you were able to get the surgery and take care of your sight. I am so sorry you have been through so much and still have so much to deal with however. I have been dealing with reduced vision and it is driving me crazy. I don't have glaucoma, thank goodness but I am getting cataracts and have what I am fairly certain is eye disease caused by auto-immune conditions. I cannot just get surgery since it will not address the underlying condition causing the problems. I don't want to ignore it and have it happen in the other eye as well.

I am taking numerous supplements for my eyes and trying to take care of them.

I agree. People often take their sight for granted until they don't have it.

I hope you do well and your sight improves,
Jessica

Hey Jessica,

Thank you for stopping in with positive words of encouragement.

You have a good idea about how eye issues can affect our vision.

One thing that needs to done is to protect eyes from the nasty blue rays from the computer.

Precious sight is a gift. Without it, life could be a nightmare.

My advice to you is to have your cataracts growth rate closely monitored because these nasty beasties do reduce vision.

Never ignore, take action and don't be afraid my friend. :-))

I’m sorry Maxine. Thank goodness that you are better and recovering. It makes you stop and think how something like that can stop you from your everyday routine of things.

I believe the great motivational speaker, Jim Rohn said, “If you don’t have your health, then you have nothing.”.

It’s so important to look after ourselves first and sometimes that’s easy to forget. Just happy to hear that you’re eye is healing.

God bless,

Hi Maxine, thanks for letting us know your story and i am so pleased that you are on the road to recovery. You are quite right that sight is so precious and needs to be cared for at all times. My wife has glaucoma, currently not as bad as you so I really do sympathise. Great that you were able to get treatment though, what a great friend you have, give them our blessings also. Look after yourself Maxine as health is the only thing worth protecting at all costs. With respect, the WA challenge can come at any time in the future but without your sight........

Good Morning Maxine,

That was a frightening story with a happy ending. Health comes before anything else. You know that Lutein, Zeaxanthin and the Nitrates from leafy greens are a must to keep your eyes healthy.
You might also consider having a good detox so your body gets new energy to heal itself

Thinking of you, with a big Hug, Taetske.

Good morning Taetske,

So good to hear from you with a tablefull of treats for my eyes.

The only one I have not tried is Zeaxanthin I will look into it.

For now, all is well.

Thank you for the great health advice. It is much appreciated.

Health comes first.

Onwards and Upwards.

Normally when you take this supplement Lutein is often combined with Zeaxanthin. I also take it as with all this computer work my eyes have not become better.

All the best, Taetske

Take care of your orecious sight my loyal health associate.

I have made up my mind having been warned.

Rays from the computer will not be allowed to promote the deterioration of my sight.

So, I have changed my approach for better results.

All the best

Sorry to hear about your eye... That sounds so scary!
Not to worry about the SAC this year as your health comes FIRST.
I'm sure you will still get the emails although I'm not sure what to expect as haven't really heard what week 2 will bring.
Perhaps there will be some videos you could listen to.
Take care of yourself, wishing you good health.

Hey Eliz,

Everything is in place to move forward.

But, I suspect the challenge should be vigorous, probably too much for my eyes.

So, I withdrew.

No regrets here because ther will be ither challenges.

My health is more important.

Thank you for stopping in to leave a positive comment.

Maxine, I’m so sorry to hear about your health condition, but I’m thankful you received help in time!

I know how disappointed you are to have to resign from the super affiliate program, but your eyes are so important that I know you understand you have to take care of them and follow your doctors orders!

You are in my prayers sweet lady,

Oh Maxine..... I am so sorry to hear about your problems with your eyes.

Yet, once again I am very happy that you were blessed with a dear friend. I am glad that you were able to get you to Florida for the medical care you needed.

As you are aware, without your health, you have nothing. That must have been a very scary experience.

If the Lord wants you to make to Vegas, it will happen without you destroying your health in the process. If He doesn't, that means that He has other plans in store for you. Regardless, you have to trust.

I am sending hugs and prayers your way.

I am sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time. I don't think I will ever have the trouble you are having, because of one thing. I have smoked marijuana for most of my life and it is a proven fact that marijuana helps with glocama (hillbilly spelling ) and eye pressure. I was thinking about setting up a website on the medical uses of medical marijuana and how it should not be illegal. Maybe you should talk to your doctor about marijuana and your problem with your eyes. You will be in my prayers. Please like my comments, thanks Sruffey.

Hey David,

Thank you for your prayers and stopping in to leave a comment.

Marijuana is not an answer in my situation. It is illegal in the Virgin Islands.

However, if you are passionate about setting up a site on it, then do so.

But, marijuana is not for me.

Bless your heart, dear...and I was so looking forward to your being part of the challenge. At least you will still be on here and we can keep in touch as usual. Bummer! However, on the bright side, so glad you got it taken care of. Hope all is well going forward.
