I've had enough of this. Why is it that because you have glasses you are called names? I've been called a geek or a nerd my whole fucking life, no matter how I act, just because I have glasses. If I take them off, I can't even see what I'm typing, and the screen is about one and a half feet away. If my dad didn't think contacts were a 'waste of money', I wouldn't have a problem. I'm not bitching about how I look, I'm sick of what other people are saying about me. Kids I don't even know have insulted me. My dad also says that I should get the eye laser surgery. "The very minimum age is 18 for laser vision correction.". That's in five years. And once you have the surgery, there is a possiblity that your vision may return back to being worse over time, and you may require reading glasses. I find that it isn't worth it, I like to have things done and dealt with. I know everyone's going to say that I shouldn't be complaining, that it's life, and it is, but I'm angry now, so I'm posting anyway.
