I never heard of such a thing. I'll look into it.

Maybe they can help me get a job. People want to hire me. They know I can still work and have a lot to offer. But corporate eggheads don't want the liability of employing an over 50 person with less than perfect health. Or so I'm told anyway.

Thanks.

Sucky. One of my best developers has 10% vision. He has a guide dog and 2 very large monitors on the desk and does a great job. And I get a dog to pet in the office. His web pages are always compliant to visibility requirements as well, which saves a lot of rework.

Fingers crossed someone does pick you up soon.

Thanks to all.

It's lawyers and insurance companies that call the shots in the boardroom now. The last "real" job I had was in 2009. It's been hustle hustle since then.

This legal environment has skewed employment opportunities for many deserving candidates. This isn't the first time something like this has happened to me.

I hope it's OK to say that my country is in a very dark place now. (No pun intended.)

In all conceivable ways.

I am well past 50. I was not seeing too well. Because of another problem, I didn't attend to it. When I was better, I went "for new glasses" and the eye-guy sent me right over to the cataract guy. I am now SO MUCH better; better than new (always was some near-sighted). I hope that is your problem, and that you can get funded to fix it. I do know many other less solvable eye problems (my friend left nose-prints on his monitor; another friend flirts with macular degeneration).

As for that circuit: fat crayon, big sheet paper. Get the local kid to snap a picture and post it somewhere, tell you the "URL" or any breadcrumb trail so as we can find it.

I already took some pictures with my new cellphone. Most did not come out very well. I fumbled around but was unable to upload any. It is very frustrating and embarrassing. I do not like asking anyone for any help either. I am fighting to remain as independent as possible.

I do need to go to the doctor, but I haven't even had insurance for 4 years now. Don't tell me about Obamacare - it would cost about 80% of my income. It's a sad pathetic joke. What I need is a job with insurance. And it's hard to get a job when your health is obviously deteriorated - not only am I Mr. Magoo, but I have two shot knees (obvious when I walk), a hernia the size of a baseball (I already had four fixed when I was a first class citizen with real insurance), a bad ankle, a bad shoulder, and I found out I'm pre diabetic (which would explain my weight going up and down so much). So I'm in that hard place. I need a job to get insurance, and I'm too much of a wreck to get a job. I'm not exaggerating when I say that people LAUGH IN MY FACE when I go for an interview. It's quite humiliating.

And I'm moving in a different direction with this circuit. I'm using inverting configuration and adding a feature. I'm breaking it into two boards. I ordered some op amps to try.

Sorry. I do think that PRR could be right. Cataracts can be completely "cured" by replacing
the natural lens with a plastic lens. You should be checked out by an ophthalmologist soon.
Maybe your Skokie low vision group will have some suggestions. Medicaid might be an option for you.
