My name's Alfonso, from Spain. I've been visiting this forum for a long while, but this is the fist time I have dediced to write a message on the forum. I have to say that some of the messages that have been posted here are very interesting, and that's why I visit it so often.
I've had floaters for a very long time. They first appeared during my time at university, suddently and apparently without a reason. In spite of the floaters, I managed to finish my degree in Electronics engineering, but I got a little depressed at that time. I went to see the eye-doctor and he
told me the same old stupid answer: "nothing can be done and you'll get used to it". Actually he didn't say that phrase, but I think he really meant it. It's a long story...
Well, the thing is that, despite holding a degree in engineering, I have never worked as so because I fear I might have to quit my job because of floaters, and I know that engineering jobs involve a lot the use of computers, doing paperwork and in many cases with white backgrounds. Besides, it wouldn't be a good idea to join a company just to leave it a few weeks or days after I had joined it.
So..., I'd like to know what your experiences are when dealing with floaters at work, especially those who work with computers or do a lot of paperwork.
I wouln't mind working somewhere different where floaters are less noticeable (in a supermarket for example), but most of the jobs I can think of aren't very well-paid. I respect people who do those jobs, but that's not what I was trained to, and it pisses me off. I'm a bit confused. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on this subject.
Thank you in advance and I hope you could understand my english.
