  1. She wrote a good post. I hope a lot of people read it. One that surprised me was that people talk to someone with you instead of talking directly to you. My daughter, blind, and wife, visually impared, have never told about that. I’m familiar with it though, I was hurt badly about 15 years ago, and spent months in a wheelchair. People would often talk to a person with me instead of speaking directly to me. It’s very irritating.

  2. Thank you for sharing the post! I realised I’m scared of being disrespectful so I shy away from offline interacting with blind people or those who are very visually impaired. The post reminded me that I can just be myself (respectful, treat everyone with dignity and include them) and it will be okay. I’m really socially awkward offline.
