I got a phone call today from Saavi, telling me my name on the waiting list for adjustment to blindness counseling came up and did I still want services.
I called back and spoke with the new counselor who I’ve met while working out. He answered the phone, I said hello and told him I just had to laugh. He laughed too and I think it was a little awkward for him to call, but he had to since he’s getting through the long waiting list for services. He knows from our chats at Saavi that I am quite adjusted so I’m sure it was funny for him to have to call me.
Think Saavi is a little busy? Um yeah. Most of their waiting lists are long, unless it’s like for O & M that is so very necessary for the blind and visually impaired. It’s hard on them, being a non-profit, getting government funding. I’m glad I don’t have to take that spot away from someone who does need counseling. Hopefully with this new staff member, things will start to move a little more quickly.
Isn’t that funny though??? Anyone think I need counseling for adjustment to blindness? In fact, I think I’d make a damn good peer counselor. 😉
