(a basic braille alphabet) I fall into the 90 % of blind who do not know braille, something I plan to change in the future. While screenreaders are wonderful, as is zoomtext, I miss the ability to sit down with a large book and read the day away. Listening is far from the same, and … More Braille
”Cake saying Happy birthday Mandy in messy letters. Or as I like to think of it the inspiration porn cake”. I am Autistic, have been since I took my first breath like this woman who decorated this cake. Nothing I do is going to change this fact. Why has this made so many rounds on … More Sometimes it is more than just being nice
I think every blind blogger has talked about this, and any disabled person understands what I am talking about, but I am doing it anyway because of frustration. I will not bite you; well unless you ask. 😉 I don’t have have a disease that you can get from being near me. My disabilities are … More I don’t bite, and yes I can hear.

I have assumed I was doing well dealing with vision loss. I can move around pretty well, do what I need to do, and am rather out about the vision impairment I have. I think everything is going and I do something silly like put cottage cheese on my taco instead of sour cream. Go … More When you walk into a stop sign…
Please don’t say you are so inspiring, and when I ask why say ”because your blind, your Autistic, you have PTSD, or even your disabled”. It is one thing for the mother of a Autistic child say ”I want my child to be like you”. And if they say that I hope they understand even … More I am not your inspiration
The main condition that causes my vision loss is CVI also know as cordial visual impairment, or cerebral visual impairment.
