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.
