Legally Blind In 1 Eye Blind In The Other.

I am blind in one eye and legally blind in the other.  It happened about seven yrs ago.  My retna in my left eye detached and I had two surgeries and a Cateract surgery the optical nerve went dead.  So messed up the other eye.  It has been tough and hard to find friends willing to deal.  My best friend past away shorty before this.  I am trying to find friends and people who understand what it si like to have to depend on ppl for things.  It has been hard to find relationships to.  It is not easy, but I am surviving somehow.  Life isn t what you expect, what the real test is.  The way you handle what life give you.  When you think you cannot go on anymore rember, NEVER GIVE UP AND NEVER SURRENDER that is what they expect never let anyone tell you who you are or what you can do.  Remmber no matter what anyone thinks always always respect yourself and tell yourself you can do it.  People are afraid of what they do not know.  They hate to be around anyone different it scares them to what could happen to them.  Piople that can see have it easy when they say life is hard they arre FOS.  They do not even know what hard is.  Rmember they disabled are the strong ones we have to live with diversity every day of ours lives.  I hope you have someone to love and good friends and family that support you.  I do not so it makes me happy to know that you do.  BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER AND PARTY ON DUDES!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not. But I think you are amazing. I always wanted to have a blind friend for some weird reason. I honestly think you guys are awesome. I don't mind helping a blind person. In fact, I believe I will like it. As weird as it seems...

Thanks for this post I am 22 and goin through a lot with my eyes never dreamed it happen to me I have been depressed and felt like giving up ur post has inspired me forreal man. !!

I am brand new to this blogging thing. I am reaching out to blog because I am at the point of wanting to give up. I am also legally blind in one eye and almost totally blind in the other. I have been this way for about 8 years due to a medical condition. I just wanted you to know that I really needed to read this tonight. You have inspired me to fight back and not let my friends and family dictate my life and how my experience should go. I thank you for this! <3

Wow that is awesome, I love how determined you are even without any support. I feel so lucky I'm only legally blind in one eye.
