Chapter 16: Her Name Was Once Eleanor
(by Eleanor, added on 21 July 2013 11:04 AM)


I do now realise that it has been 6 years since anyone has posted a chapter on here. That saddens me: for although we may be creative, we have not been active. Why? Have we lost our touch, as it were?
My name is Ellie. I never go by Eleanor, except on here. I have Retinopathy of Prematurity as some of you do, and I was born at 24 weeks (16 weeks early). I am not sure how my sight went, but I do not remember it. I could never get my sight back because the shock would probably blind me again, and I would have to start from scratch. This may surprise you who is reading this, but I am 13. My language and style of writing is somewhat older because I enjoy writing, spinning words and sentences into something knew. Think about it as a cloth or a quilt.
I go to a school with a VI unit, which is extremely useful. I've found confidence (hopefully not too much of it) and I would just like to say to anyone who is losing their sight: keep fighting. Don't give up. You get so many good experiences from being blind.
I enjoy singing, as well. Recently, I have started to write my own songs. If anyone would like to talk, drop me an email. That's all from me. I hope others post on here like I am doing now. This is such a good way to express our creativity.
