Great things about being blind. Reading when you are sick.

Okay!   Don't panic!  I'm not sick.  I feel fine.  I actually just finished a wonderful visit with my last guide dog's wonderful first family!  I did  have a headache last week and I seldom get them.  So, as I lay on the bed with my audio books and braille and read away in the dark with my eyes closed, I was glad I was blind when I was sick.  When I was in my last year of high school, I had terrible glaucoma pain in my eye.  The slightest exposure to light would make me throw up.  The problem was that I was close to christmas exams.  If I was in the dark, I was all right.
So, I placed myself in a totally dark room and studied for my exams.
The trouble was writing them though.
I had to wear very dark glasses and because I wrote in a separate room, I turned the lights off and brailled and typed away.
If I have a bad cold, again, I don't have to have lights on.
can lie in bed with book under the covers and read away.
Not that I like to be sick, but when I am, thank goodness I"m blind too.
