ISSUES FACING PERSONS WHO ARE BLIND, relationships with friends and family

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen:

With the holidays fast approaching, we thought a good topic would be relationships with friends and family. How have your friends and family supported you in your quest for independence? How have they misunderstood you or failed to be supportive? Does your blindness effect how often you see your family or friends? For example, I do not enjoy spending the night over at my sister's because of comments made about my guide dog. We also may have poetry about blindness from one of our participants in the last program.
