Holiday Frustrations

Holidays are tough. I am around a lot of family all the time and while they know I have RP, and I tell them what makes life harder they still tend to do it. An example of this is moving things around. I put things in specific spots so I know I can find them later. However everybody has a different idea of where everything should go. I then spend so much time looking for them. Very annoying!

It’s also the time when I would like to just be able to go drive somewhere by myself or run to the store. Nope… Can’t happen.

This Christmas my family all has been curious about my vision loss. While I am generally pretty open about it, I think I am going through a phase of being annoyed with it so when people ask me, it sometimes gets to me.

Sorry about the negative blog. We have ups and downs in the journey of RP, and this just happens to be a down!

I am trying to write more. Sorry about the lack of posts.
