Growing up with Stargardt's -- How many fingers

One of the most tiresome things for me was being asked the question "how many fingers am I holding up" and they would wave and sort of laugh. I know people or kids don't mean harm by it, but if you were asked that question by almost everyone you've ever met, you'd understand what I'm talking about. I understand its hard for people to comprehend what it means to be legally blind, because I "look" normal.

  1. You know when I saw the title of this post I laughed a little, just because I went through the same thing so many times that I've lost count. I'ts true its hard for people to understand what we can see and what we can't, so the simplest way for them to find out is to ask that question, what most people don't realize is that we get asked that so many times, that after a while it gets old very quickly.
