Tomorrow will be my 8th week here at MCBTC. Thankfully, it will also be my last. I entered here with the naive idea that I didn't have all that much to learn about adjusting to my visual impairment. I'll leave here knowing how ridiculous that thought was.
This week I will be reflecting about the time I have spent here at the MCBTC, the friends I've made, the skills I've learned, the things I missed in the real world, things I can't wait to return to, and the things that terrify me about going back home.
I've learned an awful lot about myself and how I have changed over the last 10 months, as well as how I've grown in the last 8 weeks. I am a different person than I was before motherhood, blindness, and rehabilitation. I kind of like who I have become.
I'll try not to get too sappy, and I can assure you that my journey will not end on Friday evening when I go home. I am not adjusted - mentally, physically, or emotionally, to my new life as a visually impaired individual. Every single day, for the rest of my life I will be learning new ways to adjust.
