Q/ How did you go blind?

A/ On March 27, 1997, at the age of 31, I was diagnosed at Dunedin Public Hospital with inflammation of the retina due to an unknown virus which left me legally blind. This took my remaining partial vision after already having been diagnosed at the age of 18 with a juvenile form of macular degeneration which had me already seeing things in a blur. In 2008 I lost the remainder of my vision; I am now totally blind.
