About

The doctor will see me, but I can't see him and what's worse is I can't get there because i am legally blind. I can take the bus to many places but doctor's appointments are a challenge when i don't know the layout of the building or the bus schedule can't get me there. I have a great family that helps a lot, but they work during the day. In exchange for a ride, let me show you how I manage my household, cook my meals and do all the things you do!
