Depression and Blindness

I’ve lived my entire life dealing with depression and if my eyesight were to miraculously return today, unless there was also a miracle relief from my depression, I would still battle this illness. My friend Ashley talks about blindness and depression to help us to understand we can live a fulfilling life with a disability while simultaneously managing depression.

  3. It’s sad to think that some people would think that depression would hand in hand with being blind. But, those of us know otherwise. One is a precursor to the other.

  4. So many times people forget that there is such a thing as a “double whammy.” Having one problem does not preclude us from having another. (In my case they are Multiple Sclerosis and paraplegia.) Depression is frequently a primary issue and is unrelated to something more apparent, such as the use of a white cane or a wheelchair. The possibilities are endless; therefore I shall quit typing and tap Reply. 🙂
