100 Days of Productivity. Day 70
🐾 continuing with the GSD training￼.
He’s been acting slightly less spastic and actually did a pretty good job when I asked my boyfriend to accompany me on the walk as an intentional distraction.￼￼ GSD loves my boyfriend ￼obnoxiously. I expected him to practically disjoint my shoulder, but he did ok, despite RB￼￼ and the excitement of all the neighborhood children zigzagging in every direction￼
💚 I worked out by 8 AM
💙 In the spirit of not letting my bleak school readings￼ depress the hell out of me, I ￼read a few articles about successful￼ mental health interventions for the blind.
📚 i found numerous articles on sighted person stereotypes and attitudes towards the blind for my paper.
Spoiler: that was depressing, but... it needs to be done.￼
💙 I looked up a couple interventions that helped the sighted participants￼ Attitudes improve towards the blind￼
￼￼💙 Did nice things for my skin and hair￼
💜 got my Kiddo to her conflict resolution styles workshop.
⭐️ Finally cooked that spaghetti squash￼
￼I’m lucky to be partially sighted. In most cases my blindness is an invisible disability. I don’t quite fit into the “blind community “because of it. ￼I’ve learned how to posture myself like a sighted person in many scenarios to avoid these countless stigmas I’m reading stats about, but I shouldn’t have had to￼￼.. and many blind people don’t have the option to conceal the extent of their blindness￼ at a job interview￼, on a date, at a party, in their classes. I had a friend get turned away for months in my ultra ‘ Rara diversity! We want inclusivity for all!’ ￼town because nobody wanted a visually impaired￼ roommate.￼￼ The normalized, ￼unaddressed ￼prejudice, rejection, poverty, under-education, and lack of representation￼￼￼.. it’s really hard out there for blind people. It has been for like, ever, on a global scale. Yes, it makes me angry that there’s near nothing being fucking done about it.￼
