Opinion: I hate my white cane.

The symbol of perseverance and independence to people with vision impairment.

It is the most useful tool and the simplest to use.

It literally opens the way in front of you in a crowded place.

Dogs want to play with it when they see it on the road.

Kids think it is the coolest thing on Earth.

It is the White Cane...

...and I hate it so thoroughly.

As someone who slowly loses his sight, the cane is the most obvious sign of a disability. A huge ugly white flag telling everyone about something I have to deal with on a personal level. .

I hate my white cane.

Does it feel better to say it out loud ? I don't know.
