Are you friends with, acquainted with, or dating a blind individual?
Are you blind and hoping for some understanding?
Are you open minded and want to learn about new things?
Then this blog is for you.
I was born blind. This fact is as much a part of me as the color of my hair, my need for overachievement, and my all-consuming love of hot chocolate. It is no more and no less important than anything else about me, yet it is the very first thing people often see…And ask about…A lot.
I’ve never minded questions about my disability, I often welcome them. It gets to be a bit much sometimes though, when the questions get overly personal or when I’m exhausted and just wanna doze on the bus. Educating the world one person at a time is a bit taxing. I often sleepily wished that more people were already in the know.
And thus, this blog was born.
Pulling from my personal experience, I will discuss blind fact and fiction, cans and cant’s, do’s and don’ts, and a zillion other related topics.
Join me and learn about one of the top-rated disabilities on the passer-by freak-out scale.
I want everyone to feel comfortable to comment, share, and discuss. This is a safe space where no one will judge you for things like correct word usage, (differently-abled vs. disabled). If you did not intend to offend, no offense will be taken. Let’s eliminate the convoluted mystery and stigma that shroud blindness.
Welcome to my site, and thanks for stopping by!
Feel free to binge browse, I highly encourage it. 😉
