I have a very good friend who lost his sight suddenly, five years ago, and is struggling emotionally to come to terms with it. He has a great, supportive wife and a few good friends. Recently I have had discussions with him and he has told me that he is 'retreating from life', that his life is 'less valuable than it was' and so on. I think that if he (Mike) could talk to someone who knows what he's going through and come through it, it would help. By 'come through it', I guess I mean someone who has recaptured the zest for life they once had but temporarily lost. Thank you to anyone who can suggest a way forward.
