Article: What I Wish People Understood about being Legally Blind

Coco: I came across this article and wanted to share. Pretty spot on! People have these assumptions and misgivings about people who are legally blind, and it’s frustrating. 

Despite having some residual vision, I identify myself as Deafblind, but in no uncertain terms, for many other political/medical/clarifying purposes I call myself legally blind, but find that label ironic. Legal? Hmm. Wonder where that came from?

Enjoy the article. Have a great week!

Tactile love,

Coco
