Strange questions.

So I was going to make this a Thursday lister post, but I’m not sure if I can think of enough things to actually make a list. I was also going to call this post “questions I don’t particularly like answering,” then I realized these are just obvious questions. These are strange “how do you” … [Read more…]

Delaying the question.

I was supposed to answer my last question tonight but it’s one of those questions that needs a really long answer! I’ve been dealing with the passage of CISA all day, (I’m still in the middle of posting things to my linkblog about that,) so I’ll get back to posting things tomorrow. CISA= Cybersecurity Information … [Read more…]

Day 26: picturing things.

When you imagine things, do you picture them? If someone describes an image well enough, I can usually picture it. This tends to happen mostly when I’m reading though, , (it happens a lot when reading revilations, for instance.) It can also happen if I’m reading a very detailed legal document/brief, if the document is … [Read more…]

Day 25: support groups.

Are you a member of any support groups dealing with blindness/vision loss? I’ve never actually been a member of any blindness-related support groups, but I know they exist. We have one here locally, (or at least we did a few years ago.) I suppose I’m the kind of person that finds bible studies and home … [Read more…]

Day 22: balance.

Today my counselor asked me an interesting question that I’m not asked very often, so I thought I’d address it here. Do you find it hard to keep your balance? Not usually, unless I have a really bad headache, then I tend to get slightly off-balance. When I’m attempting yoga poses or ballet steps, (something … [Read more…]

Day 21: senses.

Do you have sharper or heightened senses because of your blindness? A lot of people ask me this question, in several different ways. “Is your hearing better than all your other senses?” Actually, I’d have to say that my long-term memory is better than anything! I’m just good at remembering things, but not good at … [Read more…]

Day 19: Healing.

Why hasn’t God healed you yet? Do you believe you will receive a healing on earth? I’ve actually gotten this question, (maybe not in those exact words.) Let me start by quoting a bit of scripture, (one of my favorite bible passages!)Via Bible Gateway 9 As he went along, he saw a man blind from … [Read more…]

Day 13: working.

Do you work? Regular readers to the blog will probably know that I’m an SSA recipient, so no I don’t work. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t done my share of job searching, or had my fair share of internships and volunteer opportunities. I ended up doing the job search thing for about 9 years, … [Read more…]

Day 11: money.

How do you differentiate between denominations of currency? I usually don’t carry cash, (that way I don’t have to end up dealing with all different amounts of change, having to dig it out etc.) When I do, I fold the bills different ways. It’s a bit different with coins though. Coins are all different sizes … [Read more…]
