Impact On Your Life
I try not to let it hold me back. School is harder with this disease, and takes away independence when it comes to driving.

It reminds me that I am blessed to be able to see somewhat, and not be completely blind. There are people worse off, so appreciate what you have. Don't take anything, including your health, for granted.

Employment
Not working now.
