And that’s the explanation I will use going forward! And to add that I don’t expect Dave forgets he’s blind either but that he too thinks about other things 😉 (winking face) – again with food being the main one of course!
There’s an interesting article by Jen Pearlstein’s on The Mighty website that we mentioned before https://themighty.com/2017/06/when-people-say-they-forget-about-my-disability/#_=_desribes which details how she now doesn’t find it a compliment when people forget she has a vision impairment and actually finds it offensive when they could assume it is a compliment. It’s a really interesting article and well worth a read.
