Inquired about how I get a copy of my registration of being partially sighted. The gentleman wasn't very helpful and stated I am not registered (was registered as a child may be north Lanarkshire) - if I had the details I wouldn't be enquiring. I asked for a registration form which he stated he wasn't allowed to give me, which is a reasonable answer, but there was no help to move forward as what to do next. I left the phone call feeling frustrated, belittled and negative about the situation. It is already difficult living with a life long condition without organisations who make you feel you have no support .
