Can I become blind from having bad eye sight; can nearsightedness keep getting worse and worse and worse?

In brief: Not exactly

Your nearsightedness will worsen until your late 20's and then stablize.
As you age you will slowly lose your ability to focus up close. This will require glasses for both distance as well as bifocals to read up close. But you won't lose your ability to see.
