My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Woman. Retinitis Pigmentosa.

Connecting.  Relating.  Laughing.  Crying.  Life of a woman with Retinitis Pigmentosa.

I recall in my early days of Retinitis Pigmentosa we had and still do have many dear friends where the man has RP. Lately, I have been connecting with some amazing women with Retinitis Pigmentosa. Let me introduce some of them that are bloggers.

Lacey. Her blog is private, but love her. Such a blessing to be her friend and watch her family grow.

Oh how I can relate to her. Brings back many memories of earlier days.

She brings me laughter as I remember my days of training at the blind center and share the journeys of raising her two kids.

A friend from across the world inspires me.

A warm, gentle friend who I hope someday to attend one of her yoga classes.

Retinitis Pigmentosa does not define us. It is the commonality that has brought us together through blogging, and I hope one day in person!

Thank you for including me! I absolutely love knowing you exist. Next time I'm in Utah, visiting family, we may need to make it a point to connect over a bowl of ice cream or something!
