Impact On Your Life
My job allows this disabilty, so that is a blessing. Paper work is very uncomfortable, and shopping is stressful. My parents were in denial that there was an eye problem when I was young, and they still don't get it.

Positive Effects
Super dear son, Chase. helps. And close friends, except my goofups. I have learned to except myself and challenge the things others think I can't do!

Employment
I operate my own business.

More About Me
Life is a challenge. but I work at making me better and helping others.
