Babysitting? Nope! :(

I used to babysit quite a bit. It’s how I afforded to buy things that my parents didn’t think I needed or they just didn’t want to spend money on right then. However, over the years I’ve become less interested in it. I don’t think that it’s related to my vision, but it could be. However, now, it’s not an option whether I’m interested in it or not. And it frustrates and saddens me. I’m 22 years old and nobody that wants to hire a babysitter wants to be taking them to and from their house. I’m sorry that I’m visually impaired (not really.) Most of the time the people I babysit for, or babysat for, are family friends so I know they are loving. However, they discriminate against me in this way and it’s incredibly upsetting.
