Have you ever leaned on your friends? Have they leaned on you? How did that make you feel? I know when I was losing my sight just to have a friend to talk to about anything other than my illness and what was going on with my eyes was so nice. It made me feel so normal, at least for the little bit I was on the phone. I went out with an old friend this past weekend and it was just like old times. Okay, there were a couple of bumps since this was her first time being my sighted guide. But once we got to the bar, we had a great time and we were just 2 friends enjoying the band.
