Topic:  Get Ready for the Holidays

The holidays bring up a whole host of issues that range from how are you going to navigate a large party to being excluded from events because of your vision loss.  Many of us struggle with depression during this time.  We will be discussing ways to cope with all the special challenges the spring up during this time.  Bring your questions… what concerns you about this year’s holiday season?
