BLINDness – The PERSON – Story
This and the next two blog posts are intended to give you a different VIEW of me. I’d also like for you to look at you differently. Please tell me what you think.
The first mental hurdle to overcome is that this didn’t happen to me, it happened for me. Before this happened I was content with the status quo. I didn’t know of the impending event. Once it did happen it was difficult for me to see anything. In essence, I first lost my VISION and then I lost my SIGHT. I became distracted and lost focus. That’s when I had a choice. I could either live with the current situation or search for a remedy. Pursuit of a diagnosis was the “easy” part. Acceptance of the resolution was “difficult”.
I felt scared and fearful for what was to come. At the same time I knew where I was going. This didn’t mean that I wasn’t angry. There were certainly times for that. It was hard not to feel sad that you’ve been chosen to be a victim.
After the hemorrhage in March of 2011, I lost my physical sight. I wasn’t sure what to do or think. What I did was got help. After consulting with my physician, I pursued a resolution.
This physical sequence of events matches my spiritual one. I doubt that’s a coincidence.
That’s my story. What’s yours?
