reflecting on how my life has changed since my first guide dog, Pantera. At that time, I was still reading portions of regular print - albeit slow and tedious. This picture is a little staged but fun!
Now, trying to learn the techno world and the amazing adaptations that are available to a person who is blind. I am loving my laptop with zoomtext and still trying to master the Victor Reader with my good friend, Cricket by my side.
Dr. Siple states in her research: "psychologically it is much harder 'going blind than being blind.' Perhaps, the most challenging aspect of RP is its unpredictable course. People with RP routinely find themselves in limbo."
Finding peace with ambiguity and the unknown. People with RP aren't the only ones with this challenge ... All we have is today to love and embrace and enjoy not knowing what tomorrow will bring in our lives.
