  • And then I just have this little vidcon tote.

  • Is it a good contact?

  • It's an instagram Toto, There's the elevator.

  • Is they're amusing.

  • She wanted to make me blind for a day.

  • She wanted Thio try to make my dogs and guide dogs like it a lot of fun ideas, but I'm gonna be honest.

  • I have a huge, huge fear of losing my sight.

  • It's been something I've had nightmares about since I was a kid.

  • Sometimes if I think about it too much, I will literally spin into a panic attack.

  • The idea of just waking up one morning, possibly blind like you won't be able to see movies or look at Instagram or see a cute dog when you're walking down the street like all of that on my goddamn party.

  • And I want to know, Like, how does she deal with not having site?

  • And how is she's so much better than me.

  • My first question is, how are we?

  • As far as sense of humor because oh, my God.

  • It's like I know all about the humor.

  • Okay?

  • Yeah.

  • Blind jokes are Please make them all time.

  • Don't tell Garrett that I don't like making my way downtown walking fast faces past, but I can't see them.

  • Yeah, because you know what?

  • If I can make a joke about being blind, people laugh.

  • It means they're comfortable.

  • If people are like that means they're uncomfortable about the fact that I know somebody's.

  • My friend would not only will they laugh of my blind jokes, but they'll start making that's like us for body job.

  • I know.

  • Yeah, Gallup found a toy, so let's break down exactly the blindness.

  • So I have an eye disease called retinitis pigmentosa, so it's characterized by losing your night vision and losing your peripheral vision first.

  • So those are like the 1st 2 warning signs.

  • A lot of people with RP don't go blind until they're in their middle age, too later in life.

  • But I have a really aggressive foreman was diagnosed very young and then slowly over time, the tunnels just cave it until you have.

  • In my case, I have, like, light and shadow left.

  • I can tell there's like a window there because I can see the sun coming in.

  • So if somebody was to stand against that and they were like, backlit.

  • I could kind of see the shape of someone, huh?

  • Okay, I won't wait.

  • So when did you leave most?

  • My vision at 14.

  • So 10 years ago.

  • So you haven't Wow.

  • I like start to spiral a little bit when I think about it.

  • Yeah, there's a lot, you know, like, there's a lot of stuff you don't think about until you start talking about it.

  • Then you're like, Wait, But how do you do that thing that I would have never thought of trying to do with outside, you know?

  • Well, do you know what you look like?

  • So I always explain that as, like, I'm reading the book and you're watching the movie.

  • So I have a description of what I look like.

  • Like, I know that I'm really short.

  • I know that I have really, really white skin with freckles, and I know I have, like, green blue eyes.

  • I don't have really long, straight, dark brown, almost black hair, but like that's it.

  • But if you lined up 10 girls with that description, we all look different, right?

  • That doesn't make up person.

  • I don't I actually have a visual idea What?

  • So you don't remember what you looked like before?

  • You know, visual memory doesn't really last.

  • Most people who lose their vision don't retain visual memory.

  • It's like like you say red.

  • It's not like I read Pops up in my mind like I can't do that.

  • So, like, you don't remember what, like family members?

  • No, I don't remember what any of my family members look like.

  • What anything looks like, Really.

  • Don't worry, it's not.

  • Wait, don't don't feel sad thinking about, like, move like your favorite movies as a kid.

  • When you look back and think about your favorite movies, how do you are you just remembering the story?

  • Yeah, it's just It's just like I experienced everything with my other senses.

  • So, like nothing is is with a visual.

  • Also, even when I dream like I'm just dreaming and, like, smells and taste and touch.

  • And it's not like there's just no visuals that happened with Oh, I have a question.

  • Okay, so say, oh, good dreams like, Oh, man, I was in this bakery.

  • Oh, it was not so good.

  • And that is a nightmare.

  • Like Oh, God, I was in the middle of a game is like a nightmare like sensations.

  • They're scary and terrifying.

  • Any feel scared?

  • Or maybe there's a bad smell and you wake up like that sucked.

  • Yeah, it's like I just get like, the racing heart and like the fear and like, that's a bad dream, right?

  • Versus feeling like excited and happy being a good dream Like I've talked to a lot of my friends that were born blind in there like This is my life, you know, like when I learned how to read, I read Braille.

  • When I learned how to do this, I did it this way, whereas for me I had to learn everything the second time at, like a really pivotal point of like being a 14 year old girl, going through puberty and doing all the normal 14 girl things.

  • And then it's like But now I go blind.

  • I had to mourn the loss of the person I waas and kind of discover a new person inside of me to become and with a fun process.

  • I know it was very shitty at the time.

  • It was really hard on.

  • I went through like, really severe depression, and I was suicidal I harmed.

  • It was like a very bad time in my life.

  • I lost all of my friends and I Would you lose your friend?

  • Why would they leave?

  • I don't understand.

  • Yeah, I guess because I went from being like this person who's, like, really bubbly and happy, you know, going to being, you know, sad and depressed all the time and angry.

  • And, you know, 14 is a hard age for everyone, right?

  • Like everybody's dealing with their own stuff at that age and self discovery.

  • And I think that how they went about it wasn't right by bullying me.

  • But I feel like it was all that kind of like knew howto d'oh!

  • You know, like they just they were doing with their own stuff, I guess, and, like, just couldn't handle mine on top of that.

  • And I get it because, you know, there's no excuse for what they did to me.

  • But I also can say that I hardly understood what I was going through.

  • So to expect other 13 and 14 year old people to understand what I was going through would be asking a lot where they're already going through their own stuff, you know, How long did it take you?

  • Because you keep saying today Like I said, it's not sad.

  • How long did it take you to come out on the other side and like, find joy?

  • There was, like, a lot that went into recovery.

  • For me, that was like a lot of therapy and just kind of learning Thio rediscover how toe love things that I love before, Like I love makeup and fashion.

  • And so when I went blind, I was like, Oh my God, But I still love those things.

  • So when I love something that I could no longer see and so kind of once I started rediscovering how to do my makeup without sight, how to enjoy fashion without seeing it and, you know, meeting people in my life who did accept me for who I am?

  • Those were all the things that really helped build me up again.

  • And now I get to, like, help other people every day from my own struggles and give purpose to like all this pain I went through on us so rewarding.

  • I love it.

  • Molly Burke is one of our youngest and cutest campaign volunteers.

  • There you go as Mr Lott said, My name is Molly Book.

  • I am 10 years old and I suffered from R.

  • P.

  • Five years ago.

  • I was diagnosed with a Piazza kid's hospital by doctor.

  • Even when I'm 13 I hope to get a guide dog that I could be like a regular teenager and be independent.
