9 November - Vision and balance problems

Nothing new to report. Physically I'm in pretty good shape - my appetite is good and I can walk reasonable distances.

But I can only go out of the house if escorted by Olga holding my hand - not just metaphorically but literally. I continue to have problems with vision and difficulties with balance if I have to change direction to avoid other people. Without Olga's attention I would probably fall over or walk under the wheels of a car while trying to cross the road. I'm least conscious of these issues when I'm sitting down, at home. It has made me reluctant to go for walks which I really need.

I'm fed up with the feeling that this is all just a bad dream.
