Episode 12 - From construction to counsellor - Retraining in your 40s

Nov 13, 2018, 07:08 PM

Brian, from just outside Ballymena, shares how his life changed when his sight deteriorated significantly in his 40s due to rare genetic condition, Retinitis Pigmentosa.

From working in construction, to going back to university and retraining as a counsellor, Brian shares how we came to terms with the significant change in his sight - in particular, the roles fundraising, technology training, and learning to use a cane, have played in shaping his new outlook on life.
