        Well said Sarah, if a man cannot accept you for who you are with or
without eyesight then you do not need him, he will just be extra baggage.
When I was a teenager and had sight ad going to College I dated a young lady
in a wheelchair due to MS.  She was a lovely creature with an independent
spirit.  She was somewhat frail but made the most of life.  We dated until
MS claimed her due to respiratory failure.  She was a sweet kind soul who
had a tremendously positive influence on me and enriched my life greatly.  I
have never regretted spending my college time with her.  My consolation at
death was she no longer had to struggle to breathe, her last few days her
breathing was extremely labored.  I now know she is with the Lord in heaven
breathing peacefully.  I am thankful for having known and loved her.  But my
point was if someone cannot accept us for who we are then we need to move on
and leave them behind as we grow.

Thank You, 
David L. Bailey

People Born Blind

Hi June.

Well I feel the same about crowds I get very easily stressed and flustered
especially when I can't breathe. I also understand where Clare is coming
from about beign let down by so called friends they often promise you the
earth and then don't deliver and its wrong to promise anything when you
can't go through with it. Also as a teenager I often used to worry if my
blindness would put men off and have never been out with any-one who doesn't
have a visual impairment and the few people I know who are visually impaired
who got a sighted partner are very very lucky as I must admit I've often
found that some of the blind people I have been out with seem to be living
very sheltered lives like one guy in his fifties who lived with his Mum and
I basically became a carer when he came to stay with me. I know its
different when some-one was born with sight and lost their sight and they
already have a sighted partner they stay with them because if you love
some-one you would do anything for that person. Now though I just think that
if a man can't see how indipendent I am and how well I cope with cooking and
living on my own etc, if he can't see past the blindness and that i'm just
ordinary he must be very shallow. Well that's my rant over for today.

Take care.

Love Sarah xxxxx
