Hello list.

I know this is off-topic but please bear with me.

Although I have been totally blind for six years now, I still suffer
from Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS).

I use the word 'suffer' but these things do not in any way distress or
worry me.  In fact I find the thing fascinating.

It is visual hallucinations experienced by people with sight-loss.

This morning, for instance, I woke up surrounded by a room tiled with
small white tiles bearing a pattern of concentric circles.  Well I
didn't, but that was I 'saw' until I sat up and moved around.

I would be very interested in hearing other people's experiences of CBS
and was considering setting up an email list to talk about it.

Anybody else interested?

Here is a link to the RNIB page about CBS:
