Here is where it gets personal...Don't worry, not that personal. We all yearn for personal connections. I'm sure you would love to get out there and meet new people. But if you're like me, you are nervous because maybe you can't see who people are until you are close to them, you are committed to act.

This is a safe space to interact with people just like us and our loved ones. Ask questions, share feeling, share a pick-me-up, anything. Find social media and other platforms for the support you need.
Social media is everywhere. On every platform, you can do a keyword search and find groups and pages on whet ever topic you are looking for. I host an @Finding My Vision Facebook page which provides updares when new content is added to this site, and Macular Degeneration Support and Solutions group which provides a place for members to exchange information, experiences, and support for one another.
