with an Intake Appointment
After learning that permanent sight loss is the new reality, most experience something like the following.
Now what? My friends and family don’t understand what it’s like to not be able to see. I don’t know who to talk to about this. No one I know has any clue how it is to not be able to see. I can’t do anything I need or want to do. People will feel sorry for me. I don’t want that. Blind people end up alone and in need. I won’t be able to see my bills or mail or computer or phone or newspaper. I won’t be able to work. I won’t be able to fill out the unemployment application. I will have to stop driving. Then what? This is more than I can handle.
There is a next step. There are people who understand what it feels like to live with limited sight.
