Deaf-Blindness A UNIQUE Disability

By Ruth Silver

Deaf-blindness is not simply deafness plus blindness.? It is not two disabilities put together.? It is one unique disability.? Let me try to explain.? I am totally blind having lost my vision gradually starting in childhood.? In young adulthood I started losing my hearing.? With hearing aids, I am able to understand some speech in a quiet environment.

When I was only blind, I could socialize with many people at a gathering.? Now, at best, I can converse with the individual next to me.

can you let go?

“Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.”

Erich Fromm

“If you’re having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has

been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up – to know that there’s life

under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way." Natalie Goldberg
