Ich war ein Jahr lang blind - das habe ich gelernt

Seitdem ich drei Jahre alt bin habe ich Augenprobleme. Als Teenager verlor ich auf dem linken Auge meine Sehkraft komplett, rechts konnte sie mit medizinischer Hilfe vorerst noch erhalten werden - dank mehreren Litern Augentropfen und einigen Eingriffen. Und trotzdem entschied mein rechtes Auge im Jahr 2008, dass Sehkraft etwas für Loser ist. Danach ließ es mich ein Jahr lang im Stich.
