I'm Molly, a typical sushi, makeup, and fashion loving millennial girl who just so happens to be blind! I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at just 4 years old and began public speaking at age 5. I started just doing motivational speaking, but now I make videos and even model! Even though I can’t see, I know that there are bright spots in everything we face. Let’s find them together. 💕

    • Hi Molly and everyone in this thread: Molly, thank you for another raw and authentic q and a. I am glad you have someone as wonderful as Adrian, your always supportive Mama Bee, your pup Gallop, and fun kitty Lavender. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one struggling with mental health issues; this being in quarantine is finally getting to me. I also know too well about lost work opportunities--I've had several of them recently. My pointy eared GSD guide dog HughBrew sends cheerful wags to everyone, and my thoughts are with you all.

  • Aw I definitely had those black and white stuffed piglets from Telus but I don't think we ever got them in the context of fundraising or awareness for retinitis pigmentosa, just regular Telus stuff. Then again, I was a very small child and my parents aren't the greatest with English (especially then) and probably weren't paying much attention anyway, so we might've just missed that bit of knowledge.

  • Thank you so much Molly for stepping up and trying to help your neighbour. I was in a very toxic relationship and he put me through a lot of physical, emotional, and mental trauma. I never had the self love or strength to just pick up the damn phone and call 911. It was awful very often but this one weekend was a lot worse than most of the other times and i thought this was the night he would snap and accidentally kill me. We were in a hotel over his birthday weekend and I know people had to have heard him yelling at me, him beating me, me crying and pleading for him to snap out of it and come back to me. He pushed me down into a corner and beat me to the floor and pushed a gun so hard to my head and i was wishing someone would hear and call the police. There’s no way no one heard him screaming at me. They had to have. Yet everyone clearly figured minding their own business would be best. Anyone who ever hears or even thinks they hear loud screaming, please pick up the phone. You could potentially be saving someone’s life. ❤️

  • I totally get what you mean about how knowing can’t prepare you for the reality. I have serious illness that will eventually kill me. My lung capacity is getting worse I know it’s happening but this summer has been really hard for me and I kinda knew something was different. Sure enough a few tests later and my doctor told me yes it looks like your lung capacity has lessened. Aka I can’t inhale and exhale as easily as before. My spine is essentially crushing my lungs due to scoliosis. I knew this but to then have it confirmed was WAY different and definitely messed me up and put me in a funk for quite a while. Part of me feels like if I talk about enough maybe it won’t bother me so badly. No such luck .. yet.

  • Lavender helping you, Molly? Now, there's something I have to see! 4:21 If you're afraid of public speaking, my advice would be to focus on the reason you do it. I did just that and it helped me. I will say, admittedly, that it was in Second Life, but all avatars were used by real people, so... *smile* 9:12 The text on the screen has a typo, but then, it's easy to spot.

  • The thing I miss the most is Japan. I had bought tickets back in August to go again from October through January. I figured I'd start the new year off right being in a place that I Love, since this year has been really rough and there's nothing going on anyways. I am truly happy in Japan, I am trying to get my VIsa to live there. But I was reading that they are letting people in Japan, we just have to take a test to make sure we're clear of the virus. Until the end of August, they were having people stay in a hotel for 14 days & not take public transportation. So I figured I'd be good to go. I was living in a REALLY bad house, renting a room from a really bad landlord, and it got so bad that I have a lawyer to fight against him now. I had to move my things into storage while I was ready to go to Japan. Then......... I get to the airport, and they tell me they're not allowing people into Japan....... Despite what I was reading.......... This broke me and made me really upset..... As now my things were in storage and I had moved out of that crappy place, and I was looking forward to going to a place that I am truly happy. So then I was stuck at the airport, without a place to go, without my belongings, as I had empty suitcases since I do all my shopping in Japan. My parents said that I could fly to FL and stay with them, until Japan opens back up, so I can at least save money and have a place to stay. I was going to find a place again in LA when I got back from Japan, but I wasn't ready to do it right now, since most things are still closed and I had everything planned out the way I wanted to do things. I am just so upset because I really needed some happiness this year. I feel like this whole year has been wasted, and I've been held back in the things I wanted to do this year. I even MOVED TO LA this year, back in April, in hopes to start doing the things I wanted to do, but everything was stopped because of the stupid virus. So I feel like everything has been taken away from me this year. I know I am not the only one, but I am just sharing my story. I am so sick of this stupid virus, It's really pissing me off because it's making things VERY hard for me, it's making me miserable because I cannot do the things in life that make me happy.

  • you being honest about things is honestly so inspirational, despite what u may think. we always see influences going on lavish vacations and having huge homes and nice luxuries, but no one ever talks about their struggles. the fact that you open up about losing job opportunities puts you more on our level. makes you seem so much more REAL. more human. I appreciated this so much thank you

Now when I walk in the city, I see how accessible or inaccessible it is, I remember when I watched your travel vlog when you were at the airport, that really made me think about the airports work. Thanks to you I notice these things and can advocate for making places and services more accessible also where I live. I wish you all the best, sending love from Prague, Czech Republic

  • I know Molly wont read this because this video is a few days old but if you do, do you think your improv training helped you with your DEhave channel? I am considering starting a channel(in a way similar to yours(and also jessica kent/christina randall), I am going to start by telling some really interesting/entertaining/funny/helpful hospital horror stories/storytimes. I was born with multiple genetic conditions that cause a absurd list of medical issues and omg are my experiences interesting 😂 but I also acknowledge that storytime channels arent sustainable if stories are the sole focus because you'd run out so i will mix some social commentary, maybe talk about true crime once a week or medical mystery type stories) Anyway, i thought i would be natural at this. Im a big talker. But omg. The second i turn the camera on to do practice videos, my brain blanks, i say umm and like far too often and I suddenly talk with my hands to a annoying level. So I'm working on that and wont post a video until i am good at it. Im also terrified of people being mean. I know I'm not super pretty, if I could id get a nose job😂 but my condition makes surgery not a option unless its life or death...or i find a surgeon and dont mention my condition🤭🤫 jk that would be wreckless

Molly, I definitely smiled quite a lot when you said Adrian and you just want to hold hands and having two service dogs would make that difficult when you are out and about! :')

  • Currently I live in the US and my husband lives in Canada. I last went up to visit him in January. We haven't been together physically since. Border restrictions on people entering Canada are getting lighter, especially for immediate family - except I'd still have to quarantine for 14 days once I got up there, and I don't have the availability to take that much time off of work. So basically I don't have any idea when I'm going to get to see my husband, our family, or our friends in Canada. It's not an easy thing to deal with.
