Who Am I ?

My name is Fatmatta and I have a hereditary macular dystrophy that has changed my life and has allowed me to see the world differently but does not define who I am. My goal is to become a self-advocate for young professionals and all people with visual impairments. I started this blog as a way to help people live in the shoes of a visually impaired individual, see things and enjoy life through their own eyes. But, I also want to teach people about visual impairments and develop new technologies and ideas for the visually impaired.

As you read my blog, you will learn more about me and who I am.


    1. You are more than welcome. I don’t mind sharing information that will help others suffering from disabilities. We are a small community that need to stick together and help each other out. You are wonderful for sharing your information also. God bless you too


  1. Hello Fatmatta. I am the Healing Garden gardener. The Healing Garden is a small Garden within a public housing development on an Island in the Puget Sound near Seattle.

    The Healing Garden is inspired by my neighbors, who have learned to share and overcome their challenges to sharing. Each plant and stone is dedicated to healing and to living life as we are.

    A few months ago I met a photographer on WordPress with macular degeneration. His photographs are beautiful. Although I have lost his name, I can still see his snapshots in my mind.

    This week we are planting 22 chamomile plants. These are dedicated to everybody who overcomes a neurosensory or cognitive disability and makes a positive contribution. Like you, and me. Our examples are healing and inspiring for others, too. Thank you again for your healing inspiration. — The Healing Garden gardener
