I have worn thick glasses since I was 4. Funny how it never made me self conscious when I was young. But it seems the older I got and the hevier my glasses got; the more they weighed on my image of SELF. The more I hid in myself because of them, but they are such a big part of me. Without them I dont recognize my face. For many years my glasses have signaled me as having a disability - when in truth they helped lessen my blindness. Its a love hate relationship, but I appreciate modern science for helping me see even if I have to wear thick AF. glasses.
