It wasn't till I was 18 that I started to wear glasses. I probably needed them alot sooner, but didn't realize till I started to drive. When I drove I would veer to the right like a "drunk driver". It was one of my sisters who noticed the problem and told my mom to get my eyes checked. After not passing my drivers test 2 times. My mom finally took me to a vision center.
I can clearly recall that day. It was just one of those quickie mart eyeglass places with the thousand frames on the wall. My mother was a reluctant visitor of doctors so this was a very big deal for her. My father never had health insurance so we just never went to the doctor. If we were sick we went to bed and my mom worried over us.
I had the quickie mart eye exam and got my glasses within an hour. I remember putting them on and walking outside, it was a beautiful spring day with all the trees in bloom, I was amazed at the intensity of the colors. I could now read the street signs and I finally passed my drivers test. I was missing so much of life by not being able to see clearly.
The world is a better place when you can see things clearly.
I visit the BTD forum just about everyday to see the goings on of all my friends.
I particularly like when we get new people who have embraced the BTD. Just about once a month someone will post some study from a health "Guru" that they admire. One in particular that people always seem to come back to is the controversy about soy. Soy like eggs and beef has gotten its fair share of negative publicity. Dr. D'Adamo has addressed this controversy many times in his books and on the internet. He always says that for A's soy is a good thing, just as beef is good for O's. Dr. D'Adamo has special BTD glasses.
I like to tell these people that they need new glasses. They need ones that filter out the one size fits all health studies and commentaries. These glasses will help them see the world differently. They will see more clearly, the world will be a better place once they put on their glasses.
I really like my BTD glasses they give me focus, they help we weed out the information that does not apply to me. I can then keep my attention on what matters for my blood type.
