hi all im new here..i had no clue there was a support group til i stubbled upon it but its pretty awesome. I have glaucoma an have been visually impaired my entire life..had so many surgerys since birth til adult hood i lost count, retinal detachment..etc. I have no vision in my left eye an a little in the right eye. very frustrating because im ery dependent on others. i do not drive, i do not an will not go anywhere alone. I hate the dark or if i loose my glaesses i cry...yes i cry because i have a fear of being in the dark permanently someday. its very annoying when ppl say jokes fam etc altough jokes to others may hurt you on the inside. im an outcast/ loner because no one like a co dependent person. im also in the depression an loneliness supprt group because i suffer from bothe those an other things....look forward to chatting with others who are in my shoes rather than others with no understanding or compassion for what i/we go through.
