another phal, yellow depressions and dying leafs

So I have have had this orchid for maybe a month, it is set to bloom in a week or so. one bottom leaf turned yellow leathery and then I cut it off. Recently I had been over watering and lost a bit of roots mass. The obvious problems include the yellow "dents" with black undersides, and the boom leaf opposed the the large spike. seems limp, leathery and off color.

Myx

it seems some leaves have some mechanical damage. And the spots look like what happens on the car paintjob when you leave water drops under the sun. Maybe it's sun burn from leaving drops of water on the leaves.

Looks like it has been "through a war", but nothing a little TLC cannot deal with. Just keep an eye on any black spots - if you see any enlarging I'd sacrifice part of a leaf to remove them if they enlarge much - disease organisms can take an entire leaf and then spread to the rest of your plant unbelievably quick. Most of your plants previous injuries appear to be far enough back in its history that it has scabbed/healed over and is not just aesthically undesirable - but not an issue to the health of the plant. The limp striated leaves are an indication of compromised root mass - a totally different issue. These leaves will often not return to normal and will yellow and fall off on their own.
