I have been registered blind for twenty years.
Sight loss affects people, on an emotional level, in different ways. To give you an idea, it took me several years to admit I had a problem and get a long-cane. A few more years before enrolling on a degree course with the Open University to begin rebuilding my life. 18 years before applying for a guide dog.
Being a VIP (Visually Impaired Person) can impose restrictions, but I have learned that most of those restrictions exists in the minds of others.
This blog is about one mans bloody minded refusal to accept those limitations.
As this blog develops I hope to add video clips and lots of photos, as well as solutions to problems as I come across them. There will be a section dedicated to adaptations that I have come up with to get around my restricted vision. Resources, both online and elsewhere that I have found helpful and so on. In common with most sites like this, it is a work in progress. Please pop back often to see how we are getting on. Thank You.
