Caring For The BlindBy
I don’t talk a lot on CWAHM about health or specific health conditions. Some of you may remember that I have a thyroid disease from past posts where I’ve discussed it. However, I try my best not to “live my diagnosis.” It’s part of my life, and it certainly affects my life, but it doesn’t consume my life.
In our culture we hear a lot about staying fit and being healthy. However, we don’t often talk about keeping our eyes healthy. Not long ago I came across the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) and it touched my heart. My husband’s family has several members who either are legally blind, or who have become legally blind as adults. So, I was excited to hear that FFB is working every day to educate people on how to keep their eyes healthy and to help them find resources that are available to them if they are struggling with sight issues.
If you’d like to learn more about FFB, you can download a packet that they have put together. It’s all free and you don’t have to give your email address to be able to download the packet. It’s simply a public service announcement and education tool. You can download the PDF packet here: http://bit.ly/2nAezey
