I'm going through an interesting time with my eyes right now. In short, they aren't working very well, that makes life interesting.
The relationship with sensory organs is taken for granted until they don't do what you want them to do. It's not just the physical realities, how to get around safely, how to cook dinner, it alters your relationship with the world. Unable to see emotion on a human face the temptation is to guess, unable to see if the people approaching you are a threat you treat them as if they are.
Life is affected in subtle ways too. Frustration can be moved onto people, onto work. The feeling of being trapped can lead you to see other people as an escape, not actual people. The feeling of being incapable can lead to pushing harder to prove yourself. I'm guessing I'm not a lot of fun to be around right now.
I have some serious thinking to do, how to manage my life so I can achieve what I want to, how to know when I'm laying off my anger and frustration onto other people. For someone with very little visual perspective it's quite funny that what I need most right now is emotional perspective.
Within the next couple of years I'll be one of those guys with a white cane. I've always thought those guys have a romantic, cool kind of edge to them, so that's o.k. Soon enough the stem cell surgery I'm waiting on will be available to me, and a new life will begin.
If nothing else life is interesting. I see it differently as I see it differently. I can manage the physical realities. There is a fair chance I'm not managing the emotional realities as well as I could. I wouldn't go signing on to be my girlfriend until I've sorted a few things out. After that I encourage you to come and feel the gentle touch of a blind man, there are some good aspects to this blindness gig.
