Helen Keller described DeafBlindness “Blindness seperates people from things; deafness seperates people from people.”  I would imagine many now being asked to work from home, self isolate or social distancing because of Covid19 are feeling a level of isolation they have not experienced before and finding it difficult and it absolutely is.  My condition is progressive and…

Ever had trouble finding employment?  Wondered how you could explore your options in various other industries - we all tend to fall back to searching the internet, something most can take for granted!
