Thanks ideas

Hi folks, Just want to touch base and thank you all. Tomorrow I'll see my doctor. Hope we can come up with a good plan. I'm going to work tonight, graveyard shift. Same lights as before and (thanks anyway Shirley) it is a really dangerous work enviroment. Lots of machinery. Hopefully I'll have a job without a fast paced one. This time around everyone knows what I have and when I filled out all my papers I included that yes I have a disability and described it so if there is a problem I can ask for accomidation. Thanks for the support folks, I'll let you know how things are going. Take care, Cliff

i think any environment where your eyes might close on you unexpectedly is more than dangerous. something like tempting fate. i think you should be extremely careful and i'm not sure this work situation is a real good idea.

Hi Cliff,
How did the doctor visit go?

I kind of thought that the work environment that you mentioned might be one where vision was very (understatement :-) )important. Be very careful. It is good that the people around you know of your problems. Don't hesitate to ask for accommodations if you feel that they are needed. Don't do the "guy" thing (or nurse thing, for that matter)and not ask for help.

Shirley in AR.
