Macular degeneration

I am sad to say that I was diagnosed with this issue today along with cataracts.  The cataracts are not a issue but the other issue is a major issue with me.  Mamaw Smith who many of you know has had both these issues.  The cataracts were corrected but macro degeneration was not and cannot.  It is hereditary.
I am 70 years of age and I can see perfectly although recently I have noted some blurring of vision.  This issue lead to my visit to my MD. and he diagnosed my issue.
Mamaw Smith is 90 years of age and I stopped her driving about five years ago.  I take her every where she needs to go and now I see the future where my daughter and Roz may have to do the same with me.
I am sorta depressed because I can see the future" />
What the hell.  I guess that getting old is not all the pleasent??
