With scattered vision as many of us that ae legally blind have, we all "see things" sometimes that our brains dont interpret correctly. Ive gotten used to it over time. You will too.

Let's try this again. Got a phone call right in the middle of my attempt at a reply, and was logged out. But anyway, this stuff happens to the best of us. I can remember one time when trying to throw out some cake that didn't agree with me, the bowl fell out of my hands and onto the kitchen floor. It broke into pieces and fortunately missed me. I immediately called a next-door neighbor, and she came right over and swept up the broken glass. She safely transported it to the trash. So now I just have 3 bowls instead of 4. I've had only light perception since birth.

Hello, Brittany.

These things happen, believe me.

It takes time, but you will adapt to your circumstances. Just do not let discouragement overtake you. You can succeed in small things as well as big things.

I have been trying to cook lately. at first things did not go as easily as planned. Now, however, I am loving that I am getting better at cooking. I always wanted to make cookies, biscuits, and many other things as a child, but I couldn' one would show me how, and I always made mistakes. I got discouraged and gave up on cooking because I thought that ti was impossible for me to do. Years later I am really wishing that I would have not given up; I'm actually a pretty good cook.

Just hang in there, and don't give up on yourself.

I have been noticing that my right eye (my only sighted eye) is strained much more easily as of late. I fear that I may lose what minimal amount of vision I have in the near future. What I have been doing is just trying to do all of my daily activities, as best as I can, with my eyes closed in preparation for what could happen.

Just hang in there, okay? Don't be so hard on yourself.
