Blind no balance in the Dark

June 10, 2006 at 10:57 am

At night, in deep darkness, I cannot stand. My body does not know which way is up if can’t see the floor (or whatever I am standing on.) I DO see walls, furniture, bushes where there is really nothing. I tend to grab hold of whatever is near to avoid falling down. But when I see these objects (I see them beautifully traced with geometric designes),I get hold of nothing and fall, or bump into somthing that IS there and get badly bruised.:confused:

My pupils do not react to light or dark. My legs have no reflexes and my elbow reflexes nearly jump out of me.
