You know, it's amazing how many people's own families are so out of touch with them and their capabilities, and what they do! Pam.

Hey Caroline,

That made me laugh outloud, the first time in a few days, I
think.


I live alone, and my eldest sister still thinks I have
someone come and cook for me.
I tell her no, just to do the bathroom and floors. Yes, in
some things I am a little lazy.

As blind people, we have to be on guard to deflect
condescension and out-right bullying.

This morning a really nice lady at church asked me in the
nicest voice, "does your husband help dress you?" I can
think of a time, when I'd have been furious and might have
totally ignored the question. She tweaked my beads and said,
"you're always so color coordinated." Well, that is
something I want to be, but I just told her thanks, that he
does not, but is willing to answer any question I have about
if this will go with that.

The thing I have a hard time putting up with is, "do you
know who I am?" I think that is passive bullying. So the
last time someone asked me that, I laughed and countered,
"what kind of a question is that? Do you go around asking
people that?"

I always told by family members that I am dumb, stupid, and
incompetent. I had no self esteem. My family still thinks
that because I cannot see. I was always degraded by my
family. My aunt got hollered at by the Seeing Eye. She
cried and blamed me.
I did not tell her to degrade in front of them and answer
questions during my interview at the same time while I was
answering my questions. That was very awkward and
embarrassing.
