Miscellaneous

This is another page without a discernible focus…yet. I started to look for some help on my orientation questions and found all sorts of other stuff. I am just going to throw it out there in a pile and you can sort it.

First of all, I discovered the American Foundation for the Blind has a whole website dedicated to us newbies, people who are starting to lose their sight. It is visionaware.org.

In true baby boomer fashion, we are rocking the world. AFB just started this site not long ago. I am reasonably sure the site was created because there are so accursed many of us in the same boat. If misery loves company, we have a lot of it. Just remember the upside of there being so many of us is that we get noticed.

Said it before, say it again: if we have to be going blind, this is the best time yet in history to be doing it.

Anyway, visionaware.org has all sorts of topics listed. I saw listings for safety in the potty and learning how to ski. Wide variety of stuff. Check it out.

I also saw AFB had a book advertised – they have a book store btw – and it looked decent. The title is Making Life More Livable: Simple Adaptations for the Homes of Blind and Visually Impaired Older People. Since I am now an official visually impaired person and I have my official visually impaired person’s BARD account, I downloaded it….for free. It is a short book. I will listen and see if there is anything there to “write home about”.

Like I said, I found all this stuff by searching for orientation information. I printed an article, again from AFB, about using either Apple Maps Connect or Google Maps for getting around. Guess I really should get on that….and about a half a dozen other things I should do.

No rest for the wicked. Type at ya later.
