    • Thank you, Sarah, back when I could see, photography was so much a part of my life.

      • I know how hard it is to miss the beauty in the details. I wish my eyes weren’t so bad.

      • Photography and art brought me such joy, I miss them both, so much, one of the most difficult transitions in my sight loss…we make do and I’ve learned to adjust, it wasn’t a happy adjustment, and inside, I ranted and railed for a long time.

      • I understand. Ignore me if this is too personal, but how much vision have you lost. I have a big flat screen TV that I use as my monitor so I can see what I’m doing better.

      • I have the same, isn’t that amazing, and my work is usually 1 to 2 inches high so I can read it. My left eye was cut over the pupil, took a year to heal, got a rare unknown non communicable parasite that took my vision in both eyes, now cataracts which they aren’t sure they can remove because of the condition of my eyes. The scars make it difficult to see. Remember that add about drinking and driving, and they keep adding glasses and your vision get blurrier and blurrier? well, daily, it changes from the worst scenario to not bad and back again. It’s a moment to moment thing.

      • My eyes aren’t quite that bad. Though cataracts runs strongly in my family, it hadn’t reached me yet. I was sick a lot as a child with strep throat every few weeks which was accompanied by a high fever each time. Apparently kids who have frequent high fevers are more susceptible to vision decline. My estigmatism (the funky shape of my eyes) is so bad that I have prisms included in my glasses prescription. They keep me from seeing double. The vision itself is worse in my right eye than my left, and my eyes tire easy. I have to use a very special (and expensive) kind of lenses so that my glasses don’t look like the bottom of coke bottles. When I have migraines, sometimes my vision is black, or at least has spots of black.

      • wow, I’m so sorry. They said I had estigmatism growing up. Now the doc says, I’ve never had it, it’s something else, and it causes depth perception issues, although I’ve never until now as a result of the damage encountered it. I drove, parked my car, run, etc without any issues. Now however, I have to be very careful. My glasses would look like coke glasses and more if they didn’t have that special new glass that counteracts that. My eyes tire easily too, I can over do it quite easily when it’s a bad day.

      • Oh, I understand. We went to a nearby aquarium yesterday and there were a few tunnels beneath a very large shark tank. I couldn’t keep my equilibrium because my depth perception was so off.

      • It is a relief, but also a stressor. I feel horrible that he has to do so much for me and our family. I do what I can, but I always feel like it isn’t enough, despite his persistence to the contrary.

      • I know that one. Your hubby obviously knew what he was in for, since this wasn’t a recent happening, Right? But I know the guilty…I get them in spades because I can barely walk at times.

      • Not really. Growing up, all I remembered was blacking out after my father beat me senseless. I’m not one to pass out, so we both knew there was probably more, and there was. It wasn’t until after my son was born that those memories started to resurface. I wasn’t blacking out. Those beatings were my father’s form of foreplay. Anyway, I dealt with it as best I could, but after a health scare that almost killed me, all of what remained of those memories came back in a rush and I couldn’t deal with it. Now here I am, almost three years later, after breaking down to the point that I was barely holding on. He picked up the slack, and hasn’t complained once about my inability to do so much of what I once could. I just wish he didn’t have to. It feels sort of like I’m robbing him of a happy life. But he maintains that I need to do these things (write) for me and he wants me to focus on them because they help. So, here I am.

      • Sarah, I’m sorry your life was like that. Mine was too, from the day I came home from hospital until I was 13 add in sexual abuse and emotional abuse that continued (emotional) at my mothers hands who didn’t want me and tried to give me away every opportunity, my life wasn’t a happy one. I too didn’t remember any of it until I was raped. Then I had a plateful to deal with and a break up and stuff with my kids I won’t speak of here. Major issues along with health issues that nearly took their lives, both of them. It’s been a rough life all told, so I know where your coming from, implicitly. Honestly, give what you can, do what you can, and love with all your heart. Your husband sounds like he’s understanding and accepting and loves you to bits. I’m proud to know you! Exchange with you. Your a treasure.

      • Thank you so much for that. And I’m. So sorry to hear that you can relate to a lot of what I endured. No one deserves that. I’m also happy that your kids are okay now, at least that’s the impression you gave me and ftom the way you’ve spoken of them.

      • They are. In all honesty, if it weren’t for them, I don’t know how it would have gone down. They were the lifeline I held onto, knowing they needed me and loved me unconditionally. They saved me. Which I often feel guilty for. They don’t see it that way.I do.

      • I understand. I’m often surprised at how well I can hide how bad I feel around my son. Especially with the anxiety and the issues with PTSD. He gives me that little bit of strength I need to do what needs to be done before I lose it.

      • I rarely tell anyone the depths of my life. Someone once suggested I write about it, I can’t. It’s still far too painful and raw. It takes time to recover from a lifetime of abuse.

      • I understand, believe me. In the 2.5 years I’ve been sharing my words, I’ve been revealing a teensy bit at a time. Pretty much the whole story is out there, not in all its gory detail, but still, it has helped to chip away at it in pieces. So telling you the gist of what my father did isn’t as hard as it once was. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I revealed it was my father. So, I understand how hard it can be.

      • I still struggle every day, but at least we know how to avoid as many triggers as possible.

      • That’s the biggest hurdle of all. For me, it was a multitude of smells, sounds, and I can’t watch thrillers, scary drama, anything that promotes intense fear. Even now, I have to avoid these things when possible.

      • Oh, yes. I used to love scary movies. Now I have to tread with extreme caution. I remember watching Paranormal Activity (which would have been my kind of scary/funny like Blair Witch Project) but the end was a huge trigger. I didn’t know why at the time, buy I know now. So, if there’s a movie or show I’m interested in, my poor husband has to preview them first.
