First of all, as an adult, how you handle that kind of thing is up to you. 
Moms are by nature protective, I've had that problem with my mom too.  That 
is true even now, even though I have been independent for a very long time. 
She may very well be legitimately concerned about you hurting yourself, but 
I have found that there are some things you just don't discuss with parents 
because they just won't get it, and then go and live your life 
independently.  As far as stepping on broken glass with your bare feet is 
concerned, just don't walk around the kitchen with bare feet.  I don't think 
that's the safest thing to be doing anyway.  Just my opinion.

I thought this was a settled issue, but apparently it isn't even in my own
family.  It is coming up because I broke botu a ceramic mug and glass cup
while washing and putting away dishes this week.  Even though my mom has a
live in partner who is also totally blind who she met through me, she feels
it is unsafe for me to have such items in my kitchen, being concerned about
the difficulty I may have cleaning up the broken items.  I also have type 2
diabetes, and she is concerned I might step on something broken with bare

Mom says she would be just as concerned about sighted people having glass or
ceramics, but ZI still feel the comments are overprotective.

Thouths, please.

Happy Easter for those who celebrate that.
