“Mom, you won’t believe what we talked about in psychology today. The psychological effects of becoming blind!” …shuuut the front door…no way….for real?!?! Tell me more!
He told me the professor asked if anyone in class knew someone who was blind. He raised his hand and told my story. I think that’s pretty cool!
She discussed the psychological issues and adjustments of going blind. Different from being born blind. It’s a loss that causes the loss of many things. Giving up a driver’s license or driving is devastating. Asking for rides and help from others can be psychologically difficult. … That professor is right on, Amen sister! Tell IT!
Well, I launched right in: “Hey, she needs to read my blog!! Give her my GGB card! Better yet… maybe she would want me to come and speak?!? … I got experience…I’m super into that whole psychology thing…she really needs to read my blog… can you e-mail her… I’m the perfect guest speaker … right? Don’t ‘cha think?!”
My son: “Ummm… we’ve kinda moved on. It’s only an 8 week semester, we move kinda fast through this stuff.”
Me:“C’mon… it could be my next GGB gig!” <crickets> “At least give her my card!!” <crickets>
Well, there goes his “Extra Credit” Points!! …ha ha!…Can’t blame a Girl Gone Blind for tryin’!
I AM DELIGHTED THAT BRYCE HAS SUCH A SHARP PSYCH TEACHER. AND DO INDEED WISH YOU COULD HAVE BEEN HIS “SHOW AND TELL” FOR THE CLASS!
