  1. I read that article as I was sitting outside the Starbucks in our neighborhood. I felt like tapping on the strangers next to me and saying, “I know her–she’s my neighbor and friend!” It’s a great article. Your comments about a sense of loss (feeling “less than,” as you put it) after the accident gave me new insights.

  2. I was just looking thru the web and found your site. My girlfriend has also lost her left eye. She used to be a cop and and ex of hers, who was also a cop, shot her in the face and she has lost her left eye totally. She has been looking for a way to replace her eye with a bionic one. Is there anywhere what you have found that has even started on this? I would also love to corrospond with you or anyone that has more information that could help her. My email is Steven.Collins68@gmail.com.

    I will have her read your blogs and i am sure you will be an inseration for her.

    again thanks for any help that anyone can give us.
