I've always tried to find the humor in things and I have said for over a year now that visual impairment is more embarrassing than frustrating however today while at the library working on the computer I printed off a document went to retrieve it and on my way back due to Mi left non visual field I walked right into a plaster column course my first thought was to look around and see if anybody saw me and there was a gentleman sitting at the computer and laughing so I packed up my belongings and on my way out I said I'm glad I made your day and I said you know after my stroke 3 knife years ago I'm legally blind and I said I can't see anything to the left and he says I know exactly what you mean mines on the right side I gave him the frustrating too embarrassing to painful today and we both laughed about it

Jay, I can read your frustration here.  I can't share that with you but I can see how embarrassing and frustrating it is.  (((hugs)))

You're definitely a people-person, John!  Your sense of humor overcame the embarrassment.  I accidentally run into things at times, but no excuse! LOL  :smile:
