Show Notes

In this episode I discuss my rare eye condition that causes me to only have 10% of my eyesight, the challenges that come with that and how I’ve made it work for me. The mission of Self-Love is Blind podcast is to facilitate conversations where people share their unique journeys with self love. My best friend Steph and I break down the symptoms of the eye condition and what I experience living with a disability. We also touched on my experience with depression and anxiety, and how it has ultimately led me here delivering my podcast baby.
