Lolli, Lolli, Lolli, Lollipop!
Recently I've been complaining about headaches. We've all had them but I would bet my last Dove Promise that you low vision peeps know why I've been having these headaches...
um huh...you know what I'm talkin' bout!
I had a conversation with my boss recently, a very humbling but necessary conversation with him, for which I'm grateful for. We talked and I agreed with his diagnosis that I'm using my vision too much. I work at a computer for long hours and am often using a screenreader to do my work, but I'm also using what little vision I do have to find things on my monitor.
I can tell you that during this conversation with my boss, I didn't smell any roses or taste any lollipops...instead I felt tears well up in my eyes. Truth bites the big one somethimes!
The truth is I struggle everyday to turn off my monitor, turn on my screen reader and let my vision rest. Maybe it's years and years of habit, maybe it's lack of discipline, maybe it's natural instinct, but no matter the reason it's tough for me to use alternative skills and not use my vision. And it's an area that I continue to struggle with.
So, there you go, this week I'm not such a huge fan of my blindness, or even more so my "little bit of vision". Good or bad that's how I feel about it for now.
This is me being real.
So how's that for lillipop's and roses!?!
