I surprised some people I know in the San Francisco Bay Area on Tuesday, when my voice and story came to them during their morning commutes on KQED radio, an NPR affiliate radio station in San Francisco. I was speaking about giving voice to my invisible visual disability, binocular vision therapy and learning as an adult, that I didn’t see in 3D. Doctors had left me uninformed about not seeing in depth.

Don’t assume doctors will tell you the whole truth about your medical condition. Find out from other people with the same malady or disability how they live. You’ll be surprised to learn what they have to say!
