Hi, I'm Steph. I've been blind for about 2 years now and I'm 27 years old. I've had the toughest time finding a support group. I have Radiation Retinopathy. I had radiation done on a non cancerous tumor on my optic nerves and the radiation killed my optic nerves. Now I'm just hoping for a miracle discovery of optic nerve regeneration. I know there's research going on but I'm not getting my hopes up. I have a white cane but am too stubborn to use it. I know it'll help but I'm still stuck on the "what are people going to say about me?" thing. I know I'll eventually get past that. Yay! I'm so excited I found a group of people that can empathize with me rather than sympathize.
