Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

New here

Hi I'm Moe & 18 - live in Florida

Looking to meet others & make some friends to talk about our experiences & everyday life.

It's hard to meet others with low vision & bond with people that have no clue what I go through. Hope to chat with you soon.

Hey, whatsup?
What do you go through? What do you mean, if you don't mind me asking?
I don't "go through" anything. I don't "go through" anything as you put it, that any normal 18 year old kid doesn't go through. If you are saying it is harder for ya because you are blind, I know where your coming from. It was for me, to, back in grade school. But now that I graduated high school in May, it's so much easier.
What screenreader do ya use? I use Window Eyes, I never have liked JAWS for some reason.


Re:New here



hi i am 19 and live in michigan i would be happy to talk to you. i have low vision and just finished my first year of college as a theatre major. my name is tiffany.


Re:New here



Hey, I understand what you are going through. I have low vision, and it's hard to find friends who understand what I am going through. By the way, my name is Carl, I am 22 years old, and was born with Glaucoma. I am new here as well, and I am looking for friends to chat with.

Hi, my name is Sarah, I'm 16 and go to high school so I know what it is like. I wish I was 18 and graduated than things would be a lot easier. I would love to be your friend, I live in California.


Re:New here



Yep, it's always different talking to those - who live with similar experiences as I do. I had a brain injury when I was younger & had to learn how to walk, talk, eat & everything all over again. My vision is something I never got back 100%. Somedays I can see better than others & I'm very thankful for what I do have.

I've just moved to a new place & don't know anyone & boy is it's hard. I'd love to meet others & can't wait for school to start here. I'm hoping to find other people I connect with as well. Anyone have any other ideas?

Re:New here



Hi Mimi. How have you been? I have been having a great summer. Tonight, I'm supposed to go ride the Skyscreamer, tomorrow I'm going swimming, and Friday I'm going horseback riding. Hope to talk to you soon.


Re:New here



Hi sarah, i'm glad you're having a great summer. mine has been mellow, just catching up with friends in my hometown because i spend most of the year in another city two hours away for university. i'll be going to Miami for two weeks next Tuesday so I'm totally excited. After that I hope to go to Oregon to see my dad or just hang out here in my hometown for the rest of the time i have off.
Talk to you soon.
Mimi


Re:New here



I didn't go horseback riding. But I did go to Skyscreamer on Wednesday and it was fun. I hope you get to go to Disneyworld when you go to Florida. That is my dream vacation. I wish I could go!


Re:New here



Sarah I'm so jealous! First, I've been to California, nice place, where in California are you from? In 2002 we spent our time at the Embacy Suites hotel and we visited Ocean Side where my mother used to live a long time ago. We also visited San Diago. It was wonderful!


Re:New here



I live in Hesperia, which is in Southern California. I only live about 2 hours away from Six Flags, and I go all the time. I love California.
