IMPOSSIBLE MOM

impossible  mom was crafted during Professor Blindie pregnancy. She was often asked questions about how she was going to parent as a blind woman and was ridiculed for her parenting techniques. Even from other blind mothers, she was told certain things would be impossible to do. She has worked past the naysayers and found a solid routine with her growing boy/s Professor wished there was a course of class she could’ve taken geared towards blind parents to help prepare her. Unfortunately never found any. Now, Professor Blindie is dedicated to making it easier for newly blind parents to get some tips and tricks, while being submerged in a community of women just like them. As a mom, we always make the impossible possible

Fluid on the Brain

After a week and a half long hospital stay, two weeks in rehab,  and over a month of being misdiagnosed Professor Blindie was properly diagnosed with Pseudotumor CerebriPTC . Per the Mayo- Clinic PTC occurs when the pressure inside your skull (intracranial pressure) increases for no obvious reason. It's also called idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

Symptoms mimic those of a brain tumor. The increased intracranial pressure can cause swelling of the optic nerve and result in vision loss. 

Some risk factors of this  diagnosis are:

Women in child bearing age

Obesity

Certain steroids

Certain medications use of lithium

tetracyclines

Vitamin A derivatives

The symptoms include, but are not limited to:

Chronic Headaches

Ringing ears

Severe  back pain

Neck stiffness

Vision black outs, doubling , or blurring

Because this is a preventable diagnosis Professor Blindie wants to spread the word about it as much as possible. In Professor Blindie experience many doctors didn’t know what they were encountering with her symptoms.  Many of them overlooked and turned their heads to her complaints and concerns. Had she been educated on Pseudotumor Cerebri she could’ve possible saved her eyesight and a lot of pain and suffering. That is why she  aims to have a awareness campaign event every September, named Preventing While Experiencing. Join our committee to bring this mission to life. Click Here!
