  1. Your two guest speakers have been a source of great inspiration. I traveled this journey alone
    for a year before I discovered other friends also suffering vision loss. I went through some
    of the emotions of grief & loss not knowing this is normal, as learned from the guest writers.
    Other perspectives are so helpful in dealing with one’s own emotions. People with normal vision
    don’t realize how low / no vision affects daily activities in many varied ways. They feel badly when
    they first hear of our vision problems, but then seem to expect us to keep up obligations of night
    meetings, driving, expertise in many areas, etc. Just the mere act of pouring a cup of coffee without
    missing the cup takes concentration & adaptation due to no depth perception, even if one still
    has vision in one eye. The tendency is to withdraw, but we cannot allow ourselves less participation
    in life. Thanks to all for sharing their experiences which help with tips, info on helpful assistive techniques/devices.

    1. Lin/Linda here: Thanks so much for your comment. We’re always looking for guest authors so if YOU would like to share experiences from your journey, email me at light2sight5153@gmail.com and I can help you as I helped Jennifer and Andrea get their pages put together and published.

    2. Hi, Marilyn! Thank you for reading. You’re right, many don’t understand the mental and physical difficulties that come along with losing vision. And it seems like when it’s not being talked about, it’s being forgotten about…unless you’re the one with the struggles. Hang in there! Our feelings and not only normal, but they’re okay! We are in this together!
