I am taking the plunge and starting a blog. Blog is a word that did not exist when I was a child or even a young adult; but today, blogging seems to be all the rage. I am thinking this is something I should have started doing long ago for personal growth. I hope to inspire and enlighten folks that are curious about low vision and to learn a thing or two myself.
I would describe myself as a solitary person. I would say I am a shut-in by choice really. I mean, I do not drive due to low vision but my husband will take me here and there when he can. Also, I always lived in a city that provided transportation to the disabled until this past summer when we decided to try living in the country. The closest grocery store is 12 miles away, which isn’t terribly far if you drive.
I have been a full-time college student over the past couple of years, but due to health issues and death in the family, I have decided to take this semester off. I am indulging in my hobbies and keeping things simple while I heal. I love to crochet. I am not good at it, but I am enjoying the learning phase. I am very interested in gardening as well. As a person with low vision, I am having to find ways of doing this. Things I am working on include plant differentiation and bugs. I live in Texas so bugs are aplenty!
There are so many aspects of life affected by visual impairment so I will have plenty of topics to write about. I will cover things like cooking, gardening, social anxiety, mobility, college success, compassion, and many other things. I look forward to sharing with you in the future. Please, drop me a note anytime you’d like and ask questions if you’d like. Thank you for reading my blog!
