Interviewed by Shaw Cable, Lethbridge, Alberta

During Benign Essential Blepharospasm Week in May 2011, Shaw TV interviewed Patricia Goodwin, who had been suffering with blepharospasm since 2009.

Although she is functionally blind, Patricia had a message of hope. “I would just like people not to give up. I think it's a very frightening thing when something happens to you that changes your life, and sometimes we can be in quite a lot of despair over it. When this first started with me, I had to seriously talk to myself, and just say that whatever comes I'm going to work with it and deal with it, and hopefully I'll be able to conquer it.”
