Unable to see, I was disoriented and scared even though I was in a room where I have lived for the past four weeks and where I have been for most hours during the day. Before doing the blindnessproject, I thought being blindfolded for six hours was going to be easy. I thought the time would pass as I was surrounded in a space that I am familiar with.
