February:Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa Fact #18

About 400,000 Americans have been diagnosed with RP or other related retinal diseases. (source)


  1. I've always kind of had a fear of losing sight. Now I feel like I could face it, but still I can't imagine not being able to see the beauty of creation. If I were blind now I'd still have to wait for a few years before I could get a guide!

  2. Before I became involved with GDB sight loss was one of my biggest fears. I already have balance issues when my ears act up and I didn't want to know what it would be like if I were blind as well. I'm clumsy enough being able to see. After my (almost) 3 years with GDB though, I think it's something I could tackle if it should ever happen. It would be ideal for it not to happen, but I'm ready for it (and I use those combination of words loosely because I dont' think I would ever be "ready for it") if my body decides that it just doesn't want to see any more.


The pups and I love to hear from our readers!
