Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Any legally blind young adults?

Hey, I'm a new member. I suffer from Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension or IIH for short. I've been told Im a very rare case because of how fast I lost the vision in my left eye. I have optic nerve damage in both eyes, but my right eye is my seeing eye. the damage isn't as severe in that eye.

I'm 3 almost 4 years in living with vision loss. I have no one to talk to about what its like living life like this. I just want to talk to someone that understands. I've struggled a lot with the changes mentally a lot the past two years.

It'd be cool if i could make some friends on here, or even a mentor. I'm 19 and reside in Atlanta, well in the outskirts. I'm very friendly!
