Betcha Didn't Know...
I had a hard time coming up with something for this assignment. Just goes to show that I don't really think of this impairment unless I'm reminded of it. And that's a good thing.
Journaling: "One thing you wouldn’t necessarily know about me by looking at me is the fact that I can barely see out of my right eye. When I was about 11 years old, I was working at my parents’ bakery, and someone knocked a Rickey Lime Soda Snapple bottle off of a high counter and it exploded onto the ground. A small piece of glass shot straight into my right eye, shattering my lens and tearing a large whole into my cornea. It didn’t hurt very much, it just felt weird. My dad was there that night, and he drove home to pick up my mom, and they took me to the emergency room.
After that, it was all about surgeries and recovery and a replacement lens.
The accident left me with only a small amount of vision out of that eye - I can’t read or see distinct, sharp lines at all.
But the amazing part is how awesome the human body is! I can still use my peripheral vision, and my left eye has literally “picked up the slack” and has taken over for the loss. So much so that I don’t even notice it anymore. (Unless, of course, I’m asked what is something that people don’t normally know about me, haha.)"

Thanks so much for looking!
