    My advice is that it is okay to be scared, but take comfort in knowing that you can still live a very fulfilling life. There are very few things you can’t do, but you will just need to learn a different way to do many things.

    Reach out to others that are living with your diagnosis. This website is such a great start. There are also great YouTube channels that deal with vision loss. FaceBook is also a good resource, there are groups specifically for people with MD.
