  1. Stephanie,
    Sorry to hear about the problems your Mom has with macular degeneration. My mom has also been afflicted and it has been pretty hard on her. I don’t know if your mom ever went to the Commission for the Blind, but Mom did and was very well treated and has had many benefits from her contact with them. They sent a person out to her home in DSM who marked things like her thermostat, her microwave and oven dials with puff paint so mom could feel where the optimal settings were. They also have kept her well stocked with books on tape (and the player used for their special tapes). This has been a god-send as Mom was such an avid reader. It works very much like Net flicks in that she listens to the tapes they send and then when she is finished she just pops them back in the mail in the prepaid boxes provided and they send out new ones. She usually has about 6 books on hand from which to choose. Also, they hooked her up with some of the specialty equipment you have in your article. They just couldn’t have been nicer!
    Another really cool thing that came about due to her blindness was her mailman came and installed a mailbox at her front door. She lives at the Park in Southern Hills so had been walking to the neighborhood mailboxes and he decided that might be difficult for her to manage and installed the mailbox (at his own expense and without any requests by my mom)! Isn’t that just the nicest thing you ever heard?
    Anyways, as our parents age, I like to share the things we have found useful.

    • Hi Carol – thanks for sharing that information. Yes, mom has contacted the Commission for the blind and they, too, have been very helpful down in Tucson (that’s where she lives). Being an x world history teacher, she was also an avid reader and she does keep a good supply of the tapes on hand. They update her frequently. Although she cannot see much any longer, she still plays golf (peripheral vision only) with her friends that help her. Luckily she is in a retirement community and also loves to swim everyday. Her mail is centralized so she can get to it and they have a van that picks up people to go to the store for groceries. Anyway, it is so sad to see, but she is getting along quite well – I’m sure her positive attitude has a lot to do with it as well. Thanks again for your input! Stephanie

  2. Dear Stephanie S. Jewett,
    I would like to get permission from you to use your article for reference for a paper for my med-surg 400 level nursing class. I just have to write a brief paper on an article. I found yours to be very informative and would like to write my paper on it. I come from a family were I had a sister and brother who suffered from the anorexia and a father who had bulimia.
    Thanks,Angela A.

  4. Hello,

    My name is Ryan Rivera and I have been reading your website for a while now. Yesterday, I came across this article – – and it really caught my attention because it is related to my area of expertise.

    My area is helping folks with anxiety, stress, panic attacks and related issues (7+ years in the field). So it got me wondering – perhaps you’d be interested in an expanded guest article on the same, or a similar topic? I think I could provide some additional tips. Or perhaps I could cover a new topic altogether? I would be glad to contribute.

    My work has been featured in local radio and TV shows, so I’m sure I can craft something that will work for you and your website. You can always turn it down – no issues. It’d be exclusive to you, around 650 words, but I can make it longer or shorter if you wish. I will also share the story with my 900+ subscribers once published.

    Please let me know if you would be interested.

    Kind regards,
    Ryan Rivera

    P.S. I can also send you some links to previously published articles – just let me know if you’d like to see them first.

  5. Excellent post. Keep writing such kind of information on your site.

    and for my part suggest to my friends. I am confident they
    will be benefited from this website.
