Are you color blind? Do you struggle with everyday color decisions that affect your home, work, relationships, and self-esteem? Maybe it seems like no one else understands your plight…or perhaps you are ready to shirk this unfair disadvantage in life. I understand…
This book is written for you- the color blind person who knows what it is like to be the only person who cannot identify a colorful number in a small circle. However, you are not alone. Not only do I endure this hardship, hundreds of millions of people worldwide live with our misunderstood, somewhat rare genetic condition. Although your situation may seem bleak if you are facing discrimination, disappointment, or displacement due to your condition, this book is written as a helpful guide and uplifting reminder that color blindness does not have the final say – you do!
Do you feel like you have been living life without the playbook? Or perhaps you have not considered how your color blindness manifests in your life. Is there a friend, family member, neighbor, or teacher, who would benefit from understanding color blindness? This “How To” book addresses color blind individuals and everyone who crosses their paths with uplifting, quick, and entertaining tips to help navigate and comprehend the color blind life. With firsthand accounts and colloquial knowhow, I have written this book so anyone can understand the basics of color blindness – from how it is inherited to its effects on everyday life. Plus, the color blind individual or caretaker thereof, will appreciate the applicable tips, such as how to shop and cook for the color blind.
How did I end up with a freezer full of “purpleberries?” Why didn’t my bridal shower outfit match? Is it okay that I ask my kids for fashion advice? If you can relate to these questions or I have piqued your curiosity, read and laugh along with me as we celebrate and commiserate with the wonderful world of the color blind.
