Interesting article

I had no option but to tell my employer when my optic neuritis blinded me - it's hard enough being a cop with 2 good eyes and great balance!!!

Good luck!!

I've noticed it in my fine motor control sometimes... and usually when I'm trying to actually let go of something. My co-workers have started to think that I'm throwing pens at them!
