I am blind, deaf in one ear and unemployed, and well over fifty years old. I like to read and I like to write.
Clarification time - technically I'm only visually impaired according to the Canadian National Institute of the Blind. I have no vision in my right eye and a degree or two left in my left eye. I can see enough to read slowly and to write. I can barely make out images anymore and colour recognition is going as well. Right now I'm learning braille.
Back in 2003 I posted a story on SOL called Custom Check - a short, mostly stroke type tale under the pen name of Blind Man. I lost access to that account way back then and never tried to reclaim it when I came back to SOL. If your interested, have a read. It was an early effort.
