BQ - this won't sound insensitive but its not my intention at all. Is there a job you can work? Living and working in NYC, i worked with one deaf man. Surely there is a skill set you must have that could get you gainful employment?

Not yet, I'm still learning Braille, mobility, and adjusting emotionally. Once I'm finished with Braille I should be able to return to school no problem. However, my chances of finding employment are startlingly low with the unemployment rate for the blind being more than 70% in some places. It's something of an ignored epidemic in America.

What? Why is asking if she has job skills a bad thing?

RE: The life of a welfare queen
I skimmed the article, it sounds sucky.
It doesn't mention blindness though, is your case special in that way?
Sorry to go into this, I've never talked to a blind person before, and I'm far too curious so now I'm coming up with tons of questions Tongue
