Hi I am 50 years Old and in 1998 is when I found out that I was losing my eyesight from Diabetes... I was unable to drive and to work... I now have to depend to get around by my 80 year old mother that is also has her own health problems and I also take care of and share an apartment with.... Not much friends to depend on where I live but we find we do watch over each other I more watch over my Mother... I can only see out of one eye but the right eye is not to good and I am also dealing with cataracts that slowly come on to me... I was married and she did accept me as I was but she also was Handicap to and it took a lot of stress on our Marriage so we Divorce and we had no Kids.. but to get back here I am... It is hard at first to accept that your losing your eyesight or you have lost your eyesight already and it also depends on the kind of person you are you can accept it and go on with your life or be always upset and mad at yourself or at others for it...

I do find it hard to find someone to accept me as I am but in time that special person will show up... Just know you are not alone out there.
