Default Blindness - 05-31-2010, 09:20 PM

Now, I saw this on another board and I thought I might ask you people.

What's it like being blind?

Ask your friends! And tell me what you think blind people see.

It is extremely difficult. You have to use braille and rely on hearing. I belong to the Special Education unit and I have a friend who is completely blind. She requires much assistance and cane. Though she is a very funny person and ever so kind. I love talking to her. She knows me well now

So you're blind? Hm. Now I have a question. Somewhere I read that if you don't have one sense (lets take sight) aren't your senses of hearing, touch, taste, and smell slightly more heightened?

She said her friend was blind, not herself. xD

It would be difficult. I'm not sure if I'd rather be blind, or deaf - if I had to choose.

Ergh, didn't have my contacts in. But I'd take deafness. I wouldn't be able to bear with being blind.

Deafness.

Tbh, if you didn't have anything in your life that expressly required eyesight (EG art/drawing/whatever) Then it wouldn't be THAT bad. After all, your other senses apparently sharpen to near supernatural levels.

I'd rather go without my legs than lose any of my senses. I need all of them for my career. I mean, I need to know what my food is supposed to taste like, look like, I need to know when the oven beeps when the cakes are done and I have to use my sense of touch to know when the fondant is soft enough.

I'd be royally effed over if I lost any of my senses. ._.



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

I know 4 deaf people who belong to the same unit as me and they cannot talk. But those who are partially deaf can. It's hard no matter what. One of the students became deaf from an illness.
