How I use the Computer

If anyone reads this I bet you are wondering how I use the computer well I have 2 screen readers on my computer one is called zoom text and the other one is called read please. Zoom text does not always work so I have to go to read please. I can chat online read anything any sighted person can do. I am hoping to soon get Jaws.

I'm down today

I am very down today. Last couple of days my husband and I have talked about me starting my own business. My husband works at NAPA and he thinks I could own one. He said I would be the owner and he would be my manger. Well I emailed my councelor from the commission for the blind and she is very down on the idea. I have no schooling never finished High school and she said I have no idea what I am getting myself into. There is no way they would provide me the tech stuff I would need to run this kind of business. Basicly she said I was not smart enough to do this. She said I do not have the people skills I need to do this.
This has me very depressed.

My Guide Dog (Hasina)

This is Hasina and I at Newport beach, Oregon. I have had Hasina for 5 years and she is 7 years old. There are days I still can't believe that i have her. I have never been a Dog lover but I can tell you I love her very much and I am not sure what I will do when it comes time to retire her. Something happened to me when I was a baby that has made me afriad of Dogs. She has helped me so much she has made me feel better about myself if that is even possible. She is my life line. People never really would come up to me but now I have her people only want to talk about her but at least they will come up to me. I am so thankful to God that i have her.

My Kids

I have 3 kids Mathew 17, Elizabeth 15, Felisha 13. Wow 3 teenagers can be a full house sometimes. Mathew is a Senior and Elizabeth is in 10th grade and Felisha is a 8th grader. Felisha is the only kid with alot of issues and problems. I have been told that Felisha has Audtory Processing Disorder. She can hear and she is not deaf it is that her brain has a hard time telling her what she is hearing. She is also 4 years behide her peers and she is 4 years behind in reading and math. She is in the 8th grade and is doing 4th grade work.
Felisha has a long road ahead of her. I do not know what holds for her when she gets done with high school. I do not think she will gain too much ground in her life. I have been told that she will always be behind. But I know she will do great what ever she wants to do.

My Blindess

I thought I should write about my Blindness and how I went Blind.
I went Blind at birth or even before. When my mother was carry me she took alot of different seizure medican. I guess I never moved into of her due to the medican she was taken. But when it was time for me to be born the Drs. used forcepes to pull me out. Right after I was born I went thru drug withdraw as a infant. Drs think my birth had something to do with my Blindness. They tell me the wiring in my brain is damaged some where just not totally sure where. They think it is somewhere near the Optic Nerve. Yes my eyes do move and they are healthy but my blindness is from a brain injury and not an eye problem.
