RP Truths: The “Truth” About Retinitis Pigmentosa

RP Truths

It all started with just one post. I was sitting on the couch late at night, and was scrolling through Facebook. Everyone on the RP support page that night seemed so sad and depressed. I thought to myself “How could I make these people laugh?” Even for myself, I needed to see a funny lighter side of what I was going through. I got a lined piece of paper and started jotting down daily things that happen to me while living with RP. The wheels started turning. The first thing I wrote down was ““It’s right there.” Doesn’t help.” It was funny, it was true, and above all it made people feel like they weren’t alone. From that point on everything I wrote was known as an RP “Truth” – and it caught fire. RPTruths” has shined a new light upon Retinitis Pigmentosa, and people look forward to reading new truths, and relating in what feels like such a lonely condition.

I couldn’t be more proud of the community it’s built, and I absolutely love hearing stories about how RP “Truths” has helped individuals and their families cope with this genetic disease.  To find all the truths, as well as purchase magnets, visit,
