How Losing Your Sight Can Change Everything

For those of you who don’t know me personally, I started blogging in 2017. At the time I did not have my own blog, but I wrote many posts for my local sight loss charity. I was and still am very passionate about making people aware of the impact that losing your sight can have…

Sight Loss and Mental Health

I originally wrote this post back in 2017 for the sight loss charity that I volunteer for. This post takes us back to the main reason that I started blogging, to highlight how losing your sight can effect your mental health. I was in a really bad way when my sight deteriorated and this is…

What to do now?…

When my sight deteriorated at the age of twenty three I really didn’t know what to do with myself anymore. I was a Nursery Nurse and I had been since leaving school. That was all I had ever known work wise. I had been wanting a change for a while, so in a way this…
