I finally bought myself reading glasses
I finally did the inevitable.
Yesterday, I bought myself reading glasses.
I delayed it as much as I can, but frequent headaches which turned me into a pill-popping addict lately, dictate that I really needed to go easy on my eyes.
Being 41, and with almost 20 hours of my daily waking hours being glued in front of the computer, has really taken its toll on my sight.
It was long overdue, actually.
I was already prescribed reading glasses six years ago. But being prudent (read: cheapskate), the P1,500 eyeglasses was way too much for me. And I really believed then (or was it denial?) that there's nothing wrong with my eyes.
Still, I didn't take the precautionary measures. So I guess, I deserve this.
Honestly, I am not wearing my eyeglasses now as I write this post. That's how stubborn I am. I wore it for a while, but I am not really comfortable with something hanging on top of my nose.
In the days to come, I know I'll be wearing it more often though.
And NO! I don't consider it as my Christmas gift to myself.
