FUNNY TO SAY LOST IT – LIKE IF I KEEP LOOKING I’LL FIND IT? – Sandra

SANDRAI HAVE HAD AN OCULAR PROSTHESIS FOR OVER 37 YEARS (I LOVE CALLING IT THAT SO PEOPLE WONDER “WTH?”). I WAS SHOT WITH A BB GUN WHEN I WAS 17. NEVER REALLY CONSIDER IT A DISABILITY BECAUSE I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE THAT I AM THE HOTTEST ONE-EYED CHICK THEY’LL EVER MEET.

ON OCCASION I HAVE REPRIMANDED OTHERS FOR CALLING ME ONE-EYED BECAUSE I TELL THEM I HAVE AN EXTRA AT HOME IN MY SEWING MACHINE DRAWER SO THAT MEANS I ACTUALLY HAVE THREE EYES.

WHEN MY DAUGHTER WAS 16 I FOUND SOMEONE TO MAKE HER A RING OUT OF AN OLD PROSTHESIS BECAUSE SHE SAYS IT’S A PERFECT WAY FOR ME TO KEEP AN EYE ON HER. WE MAY HAVE STRANGE SENSES OF HUMOR BUT IT WORKS FOR US.

I HAD GREAT DOCTORS WHEN I LOST MY EYE (FUNNY TO SAY LOST IT – LIKE IF I KEEP LOOKING I’LL FIND IT?) BUT I DON’T THINK ANYONE CAN TELL YOU IN ADVANCE THE SHORTFALLS OTHER THAN DEPTH PERCEPTION.

BUMMERS INCLUDE: RUNNY EYES, SLEEP HARDENING ON YOUR EYE AND TWICE I HAVE RUBBED MINE UNTIL IT TURNED AROUND IN THE SOCKET AND I ENDED UP LOOKING AT MY RIGHT SHOULDER! LOL I DON’T MEAN TO SOUND VAIN BUT FOR ME THE BIGGEST BUMMER IS THAT MY EYE DOESN’T PHOTOGRAPH WELL AT ALL. THE PICTURE I HAVE ATTACHED THE PHOTOGRAPHER SAID SHE TOOK SO MANY PICTURES THAT IT LOOKED LIKE A MOVIE REEL BUT VERY FEW CAME OUT.
THERE, I HAVE RAMBLED ENOUGH. THANK YOU

    Sandra-I love your outlook. I’m 42 and was 5 when I was shot with a BB gun. While I have accepted it and built my confidence it is still uncomfortable for me to acknowledge to others. Thank you for sharing your story. I hate having my pic taking because I do not take good pics. Yours looks beautiful. Feel free to email text or call me. 870-615-2517
