I am currently blind in my right eye and have low vision in my left eye. I have extremely scarred corneas, therefore, I am at risk for losing more or all of my vision in my left eye. Much anxiety constantly worrying about my left eye as I would be totally blind if the eye worsens. This causes a of depression and anxiety. Trying to think more positive and be thankful for what vision I have, which I am very thankful. Having so much dependence taken away has been overwhelming. The need for transportation is always an issue and feeling guilty for having to depend on others. For all of these reasons and more, just makes me feel like a burden to those who help me. Looking for coping skills that may help me feel better about myself. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
