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.

Labeling

Random but kind of a funny story (atleast I thought it was :).  I have eye drops (for very dry eyes).  I also have ear drops (for very wet ears).  The containers are very similar size.  My ears have been getting much worse!  Last week I figured out why!  For the past few weeks I mistakenly moved the eye drops. They were in the place where I keep the ear drops so I've been further moisturizing my ears.  Ah, they feel so much better the last few days since I figured this out.  I have since labeled the eye drops.  The value of the braille labeler - I just labeled 'eye' in braille on the outside which will help me remember and my eyes and ears will thank me!  Thankfully, I didn't put the ear drops in my eyes - who knows what that would do!

I love my braille labeler ... so easy to use just need to use it!

I have damp ears, too - but it's from swimming a lot. I'm glad you figured out the problem before you put ear-drying drops in your eyes. Eek! That would have been bad.
