Fear seems to be a constant with me since finding out I'm legally blind. I used to love doing research. now I spend more time being frustrated because the words on my screen run together. Today, I am thinking about my eye appearance. How many times in my 40+ years have I been complimented on my eyes? now I cover them in shades, and I am ashamed to wonder if the appearance will change to look like "real blind people." though I am always a fighter, I can't fight my feelings of helplessness. my family is great, but I wonder if my new dependence on them will make them tire of me. if they tire, how can I handle being absolutely alone?
