Hiya, my name is Linzi Wylie and I am 14 years old. I was diagnosed with strargardts when I was 10. At first I thought my life was over but then time went by and I thought life has just begun. I go to a school with a visually impairment unit in it which trained teachers to help me in class which makes a huge difference. At my school there are other children with different eye conditions, no-one has the same as me as it is very, very rare in Scotland, well actually in the UK. I use magnifiers and get all my stuff enlarged. I find it difficult to go out at weekends but I manage it.
I would be more than happy to write to anyone as I enjoy chatting to people and spend lots of time on the computer. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com but mostly I am on the hotmail one.
If anyone has msn messenger, add me on the hotmail address.
Please get in touch with me.
love from Linzi from Scotland
