i am visually impaired with 60% total loss I carry a white cane with me, it’s one with a point so I can cross the road. Yet when I’m my town centre or walking past my local primary school I get lots of funny looks or cut up or worse just stand in my way. I get really paranoid and made to feel like I can’t go out due to my disability and don’t know what to do except yell I’m particularly sighted with a stick. Please can some one please help me cope
