Hi everyone hope you are doing ok. I heard this morning of the very sad news of David Rathband's death. If you remember he was the policemen who was shot by Roul Moat.
Although I haven't had too many problems with vision myself, I often find myself listening to the 'in touch' programme for the blind and partially sighted on radio 4 in the evenings. It tends to coincide with the time I have to retire to bed. Anyway it is extremely interesting at times. I have learnt quite a bit about the lives of people without sight, I tend to be more interested in other disablements since my dx. I know that sounds shallow but there it is.
Peter White interviewed David Rathband and I found it a rather distressing interview, as clearly David did not feel that he was given enough help after loosing his sight and being a very physical person he was finding the adjustments to a life of disability very hard to come to terms with.
A very sad day and my thoughts are with his family.
