I do my own hair.
I get dressed on my own and usually match.
I can cook, but don’t love doing it.
I clean too, but don’t enjoy that much either.
I go shopping.
I like to go to the movies.
I love doing crafts.
I try to dance, but I am sure I look funny.
I graduated from High School, college as a double major, and Massage Therapy School and in all three I did well.
I can get places on my own with public transportation.
I enjoy reading books, on audio.
I can use a computer and even have my own blog.
I can take pictures, but they don’t always come out right.
I have a job that I like.
I have a husband whom I love.
I have a son that is the light of my life.
You wouldn’t really enjoy my singing, but my son loves it.
My glass is half, usually half full, but other days it seems to be a bit empty.
The days in which my glass needs some refilling the two men in my life pour their love into it.
I am blind and this part you may struggle with. You respond like I should not be able to even think on my own.
Yes I can see a little and so you discount the fact that I am blind. I am either in or I am out. For in that case I don’t fit in either place.
No, when you take out your contacts it is not the same. Leave your contacts out for a year or maybe two and you will understand a bit better. I have no contacts, just a white cane and the two are quite different.
How do I do it? I just do. You do what you have to, to make it. I try to do what I need to to be happy. Life seems so much better when I am smiling.
And this astonishes you.
So as people we are similar, but quite different.
Which is fine as long as we all try to help each other.
