A joyful heart makes a cheerful face, but with a heartache comes depression. ~Proverbs 15:13
It’s the last day of RP Awareness Month. Today, I would like to share some RP “Truths.” These “Truths” came about when a young woman with RP named Katey decided to use humor to not only help her cope with this condition, but also to educate the public about what we RPers go through on a daily basis. And they are great!
I’m going to share 10 of my favorite ones, but you can find more of these funny, but oh so true, “Truths” on her Facebook page (RP “Truths”) and her blog.
One time I dropped a black hair tie on a dark floor…I could not find it for the life of me. After watching me search for it from afar, a girl decided to “help” by saying, “It’s right there!”…really? Could you be a little more specific? Like, “Near your right foot.”Important rule when giving directions to a blind or low vision person, be specific.
…I have no words. And yes, believe it or not, someone did recommend glasses to me. -_ –
YES. Except I usually just smile and turn my head towards every part of the storefront.
The struggle is real. I usually discover the dirty spots or left over dust piles when I walk away and come back.
Don’t mind me when I do this. It’s this or spill all drinks on the table…
Remember…I have no peripheral vision. I am basically looking out of a toilet paper roll hole. Put that hand in my visual field and I’ll give you a high five.
Yep…story of my life.
Hubby warns me of this all the time and without fail, I run into said object EVERY time. #yeahthatsgottmoveNOW He also tells me that I’m not allowed to yell at him because he warned me about it…ok, fair enough.
Ok, so no one has actually said this to me, but I use this trick all the time! I always just automatically move it in the direction of the upper right corner of the screen. It’s second nature to me now.
I have not personally done this…yet. But it was too funny not to share.
For the despondent, every day brings trouble; for the happy heart, life is a continual feast. ~Proverbs 15:15
