I was barred and banned from a major Omaha hospital in 2004 because I took it on myself to enter a research center. I was young at the time (27.5 years old) and I wanted to put together a story for a short-wave radio station for the blind, and I thought my blindness could get me anything I wanted in life. So I took it on myself to go to the research center, and to make a long story short, it took a security guard to show me that blindness isn't a "get what you want in life" card. I got barred, banned, and lectured for what I did. Hey, it even constituted a visit from the Omaha Police. In the end, I learned my lesson.
