Therapy

I woke up yesterday with hours to go before the alarm went went off and felt horrible. I was thinking I might have to cancel my therapy sessions for the day, but I would see how I felt when I got up. I was feeling better, but definitely not 100%. I decided to go andContinue Reading

Stigma

I’ve been in a wheelchair full time since 2006 and I’m here to say that most days I’m fine with it. Don’t get me wrong I’d rather be able to walk and do everything I used to, but being here has given me a real appreciation for life and a chance to be introspective andContinue Reading

Tears

I pride myself in being open and vulnerable and in that spirit here goes. I came into my son’s room this morning when he was ready to get up. I was so excited to be the first face he saw. He just brightens my day, I love getting to see his smiling face and talkingContinue Reading

I’m back

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m back at therapy. I had been debating this for a while-would it mean defeat or that I’m going backwards in life. I had gotten a prescription for PT and OT from one of my doctors, but the biggest kick in my butt came from my neurologist. IContinue Reading

Challenging

I haven’t blogged in a little white, I have been working on a number of things. There are some business opportunities I’m taking care of-more than just books in my future.

Fun

Yesterday I released my second book, A Family Thing, at an Open House. It was at my in-laws community clubhouse. That was such an enjoyable experience. There were friends and family just coming in and hanging out at their leisure. When I released my first book, unDIAGNOSED, it was at a restaurant and a littleContinue Reading

Rage

This is tough to talk about, but it has to be done. Sunday was Emily’s last orchestra concert for awhile and the one I look forward to the most, it’s a holiday event. This year was like all others except for the end. We were getting things together to leave the venue. It was snowyContinue Reading
