Since about the time I was in the third grade, I have worn glasses. My prescription is a bit more than just for reading glasses. In fact for me, to see anything clearly without them, is very difficult. On a daily basis, I usually wear contacts. After an emergency, where I would have limited access to proper ways to storage and cleaning them, my glasses would become invaluable to me to function.
To me, my glasses are one of my special needs. Too many times when we talk about folks with special needs, we think of individuals with mobility issues or perhaps relying on oxygen on a daily basis, however we all have some sort of special needs.
If you have children or pets, they require special needs. If you take any type of medication on a daily basis you have special needs. If you need coffee or dark chocolate like me… you have a special need. Today we want to know if you have taken into consideration your special needs??
