Prevention Rather Than Cure. Part One...

<img alt="everybody banner" src="" width="300" height="35" /> Last week was my favourite week of the year not Christmas. Guess again?! No, not international David Gandy appreciation week....It was National Eye Health Week! Finally, we get a week to preach about looking after your eyes so you don't end up with squiffy ones like mine.

The Dark Years: Growing Up With Sight Loss

<img alt="everybody banner" src="" width="300" height="35" /> One of my comedy heroes, Greg Davies, described his teenage years as the 'Dark Years'. I think this is an apt description - for me it was acne, uncontrollable hormones, paranoia and the desperate need to 'fit in'. However, unlike Mr Davies and most of my secondary school peers, mine was actually a bit dark... literally! I have been visually impaired since I was three years old.

I Went Blind For A Year

<img alt="life less ordinary banner" src="" width="300" height="35" /> I went from being a spunky 21-year-old storming around London with no clue about who she was or what she was doing, to an isolated child-like woman who couldn't or, better yet, wouldn't adapt to her new-found blindness.
