Next time someone asks you that say, heck no, he helps undress me.

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.
