Doublevision {Podcast Episode #94}


I’m honored to have my friends Joy Thomas and Jenelle Landgraf on the show today. They¬†write at www.doublevisionblog.com about their journey of losing their sight.

On this episode, we talk about:

  • Their journey of being diagnosed with RP at a young age
  • How they hid their disease from others
  • Their desire to blend in with others
  • How finding people who were leading normal lives with their condition made a big difference
  • How people can be helpful
  • How people can often be hurtful due to lack of understanding
  • Their beautiful Blindness Awareness video¬†(WATCH it and share! It’s way past 11K views now!)
  • The work they have done around shame and vulnerability and how it has changed them
  • How their willingness to share their story has been a bridge to talk about blindness
  • How shame is a human experience that we can all relate to
  • Being willing to share our story and not worrying about how it gets distributed
  • Why do they feel ashamed of people’s misconceptions about them? They’ve done nothing wrong
  • How tools can help you show up more in the world and be the person you’ve been created to be
  • Instead of trying to hide from shame, we can choose to observe it and make choices to move out of it
  • How shame about shame can be debilitating
  • There’s no right way to go blind
  • We compare ourselves to others who are farther along on the journey
  • Your journey is your own

I’m so grateful they could join me. Be sure to check out their Blindness Awareness Month video and Like their Facebook page.
