Re: New here Few Quetions,Legally Blind?
Hello!! First of all, my hubby, who is 32, is legally blind and has a physical disability, also.
You should definately reapply, especially since you now have a visual impairment. I've heard that most people who have viusal impairments get accepted pretty easily.
Something else I would suggest is that you get with your states' commision for the blind (or what ever it is called there). They can help you with any blindness training or other issues that you may have. I think they would need to have proof of your visual impairment or a referral from your eye dr first though.
Another thing you might do is get involved with the National Federation of the Blind of Florida. on the net, [removed] I am pretty sure there are some NFB members your age there, and some of them have probably had experiences similar to your own. Even if you don't join, they could at least give you resources of places to go for help or whatever.
I know disability is hard to accept, especially for a young adult, but please know that you are not alone in this, and please take care of yourself!!
