Coming to terms, clearing out & moving creepies

I'm coming to terms with losing my eyesight in fits & starts, the first step was getting a kindle, the enlarged font facility means I can still read even though I can no longer read real books. I just wish the index pages could be enlarged as I have trouble seeing them. 
I've been giving embroidery fabric, threads & some kits to a work colleague, but only odd ones as I come across them. I have only been clearing my stash out bit at a time, as getting rid of it all at once was just too depressing.
But today I am clearing out my stash properly, I'm getting rid of my knitting patterns & my crochet patterns, I'm also getting rid of the last few embroidery kits, ones that I particularly liked. I'm also listing my overlocker on eBay and one of my sewing machines, it has a touch screen & I can't see it any longer.
Even if I have surgery this summer (it was put off last year as I was in hospital with another problem) the surgery is only on one eye, the other eye has a different problem & will deteriorate & then be fucked.
Finally, my creepies have moved, you know that sensation of something moving over or just under the skin, it is a common menopause problem, well my creepies have always been on my back & shoulders & now they are moving up my neck.
You know it's one thing to go through the menopause, but it's a real bugger when some of the symptoms never go away. I haven't had a period in over 20 years, but I still get hot flushes & I still get the creepies. Still look on the bright side, I'm not dead, I'm still here to moan about things!
