Look For The Positive In Life

Being diagnosed with a visual impairment is bad enough, but then discovering all those things which once you took for granted now being too difficult for you to do can push you over the edge. Losing much of your sight gives you every reason to be negative. Your world has been turned upside down, your...

How to Get Through Tough Times

One of my greatest qualities as a life coach was having endured my own series of personal crises. For those who don’t know part of my story I lived a great lifestyle, enjoying all the trappings of success when I was rudely awakened, literally, losing my glorious home, going through financial bankruptcy, losing my business,...

One eyed blogger

I find that I refer to myself as the ‘one eyed blogger’ frequently in conversation nowadays. I don’t do this for sympathy, but simply because it’s a pretty accurate description of who I am.

See The Need

Two thirds of people diagnosed with visual impairment said they had never received emotional nor psychological support.

No-one should feel like they are on their own dealing with this, and more needs to be done....

The Emotional Impact Of Vision Loss

We take our sight for granted. We expect every day when we wake up to see things through our two eyes. Alas there is no guarantee that things will be like this forever. If it doesn’t we best be prepared for the emotional impact of vision loss. The moment your doctor tells you you’re losing...

Emergency, Eye Vision Is Impaired, Exterminate, Exterminate!

Emergency, emergency, eye vision is impaired, exterminate, exterminate! Straight away you’re learning something new about me, I’m a Doctor Who Fan. Part of the title may have given that away. In a recent Doctor Who episode (Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 2: The Witch’s Familiar) we saw Missy and Clara walking through the sewers of...
