Actually it's not.

You just need to loop through the chars affects manually, instead of having
affected_by_spell doing it for you:

ACMD(do_affs) {
  struct affected_type *aff;

  if (ch->affected) {
     sprintf(buf, "Your affections:\r\n");
     for (aff = ch->affected; aff; aff = aff->next) {
       if (aff->next && aff->next->type==aff->type)
       if (aff->type = AFF_BLIND)
           sprintf(buf + strlen(buf),
           "Blindness    Impairs vision  %3d\r\n", aff->duration);
       /* add more spells here. */

  } else
    sprintf(buf, "You're currently totally unaffected!\r\n");

  send_to_char(buf, ch);
