I just spent 24 hours with eye patches taped tight to my eyes.
24 hours, not like a lifetime, but my oh my do I have a heightened respect for the toughness and determination of blind people, not to mention the vulnerability.
Luckily, for me, I spent the time in my own home, where I sort of know my way around, and where I know where things are supposed to be.
My sense of distance and space frequently betrayed my steps, I frequently found myself too far or not quite to my destination.
It was rewarding this morning I managed to get from the patio, back into the house and then to the bathroom, where I was able to brush my teeth, shower, get clothes on etc. Something I typically take for granted..this morning became a prideful task.
This morning the patches were removed, and I am greatly relieved, if it were only so easily possible for others.
here we are on the way this morning to have the patches removed!
