So, what about me?
This blog is to introduce you to Me, to give you an insight into how I see the world around me while living with sight and hearing loss.
I’m a mum, a loyal friend and as of October 2018, included on the Shaw Trust Power 100 List; as one of Britain’s 100 most influential people with disabilities.
A blog is my way of sharing my journey of sight and hearing loss and for my own sanity, I hope that my words can help others. As the name says, it’s your chance to ‘see my way’
This is not a disability bitch blog or a factual account of sight loss, its all about me…. (selfish I know!) Where and when I can, I will include help along the way in the form of organisations, support groups or just places of interest.
Sight loss, like many other disabilities is a taboo subject; Which is half of the problem, as a human race we learn through communication, be that reading, writing, talking, listening or simply observing.
Disability is the wrong word, it implies that I have a disadvantage to others, when in fact it just means that I have an alternative view.
This blog is here to allow you to laugh, cry, bitch, moan, and smile with me along the way and maybe just maybe get something from all of my babbling.
I will also include many a fond tale of time with my guide dogs. First I had Vicky, who enjoyed her retirement with us until early 2018, Then i had Fizz who took over her role as my working guide dog at the beginning of 2015 and is till my faithful four paws today.
