We don’t want your sympathy, just your understanding

Pretty much sums it up here…..

Ping2 on the RUN =D

RP patients are mostly not blind yet. We look “normal”, no white cane, our vision is just less.

  • When we tell you we have RP, we don’t want your sympathy, just your understanding.
  • We have dark blindness. When we said we can’t go if it is at night, no, is not because we don’t like you. We like you so much that we know your house and my house are really far, so I don’t want you to go through the hassle to bring me home late at night.

I set my goals high! Yes, I fell hard all the time but time and again have shown me that I landed stronger, to climb again! When you know you are going blind, you wake up everyday not to meet others' expectation, but to work hard for what you truly enjoy and believe in. This is my journey
