It was gloomy today and it looks to be that way for the rest of the week. Gloomy days always affect me for some reason I don’t want to do anything and I just can’t really sad and sometimes depressed so it was no surprise when I woke up this morning at 5 o’clock because thank you body clock. I couldn’t stop my mind from racing through everything I needed to do but at the same time I couldn’t keep track of what I needed to do. But then only wanted to do was sleep. So I literally said to myself WWMD I got my notebook and started making a list. And once everything was down on paper even though the list was a long-ish ( note, to all those who might try this technique: start with something super easy that you have already done or are about to do…

I got my replacement smart drive and tested out today. It works great and I can only imagine the adventures I’m going to have with it. As of right now I am still taking accessible transportation for the rest of the month just because of when did the smart drive came in. It also gives me some time to get used to this new tool and really get comfortable with how it works. It turns out route this is getting used to phase may start much earlier than I had first anticipated. I confirmed pick up Times to and from work for tomorrow To find my leaving time later than I would have expected. I then thought “well, it’s not an issue I have the smoke drive.” Which was swiftly followed by, but you really haven’t used it yet, what if something happens and, you don’t really know that route.…

I know myself as a person. I also know myself and my ability to work with and control my own mobility equipment. Walker, wheelchair, crutches, even walking on my own. Yes I still do that. Within all of those things I know what I can do and what I cannot do I also know what happens when you in someway disturb the way I am doing something. In some situations it will turn out badly. Just because it looks like I do not have control does not mean that is the case. Case in point, when I am going down a steep ramp I will be going fast and that is the law of physics. I have gone down that ramp several hundred times in my life so I know where to stop in order to stop before I hit anything and or when I need to add speed in…

I love my job and I think I’m getting better at it being that I am fairly new. My job takes a lot of attention to detail which is something that I love and have. Many people may beg to differ but that’s just their opinion, others would agree with me. That’s just how the world turns. So last week I was working on something and totally saw three of the same thing meaning I could copy and paste my work once I finished it for the first one. Well, today I found that not to be true, what I thought was three of the same thing was actually three different things meaning I had to do the work all over again. Which I’m not mad about what I was more frustrated at was the fact my eyes let me down. I know I can’t help it and it’s part…

I saw this today on Facebook and although I’m sure it supposed to be funny I think it’s also profound in the way that it points out so bluntly what society wants you to be and what everybody fights against but at the same time as everyone is fighting against it it becomes the norm.

Anyone knows me would tell you I am an almost overly organized person. I admit that and I like it, granted, my form of organization may not suit everyone. It may be organized chaos but I know where everything is. My problem seems to live inside drawers or cupboards inside anything really. That said, I can tell you exactly but something looks like exactly where to find it and what items are around it. Why? When you have help like I do you need to know where all your stuff is at all times. I give this bit of backstory so you can understand where I’m coming from when I tell you about this next situation. I get cleaning done once a week for my entire apartment. Recently, I have been trying to my cleaning game because I realize how much messier life is on wheels. Normally my room yet…

So I have turned into that girl, that girl who had ice cream for dinner while chatting with a friend about Life talking about weight gain and not giving a shit. Until of course my spoon breaks. And yes that did happen to me. It almost scratched my face actually. I don’t know what that says about me, if my face was too close to the pint where the spoon was so flimsy (being plastic)That it shut up I would’ve nowhere and created an issue with it shouldn’t have been one. WWMD, she would be so proud of me right now. So many changes have happened in my life recently and I’m just rolling with it. Both figuratively and literally. With the help of Ben & Jerry’s (and other ice cream brand as well, I don’t discriminate) and some good friends, I couldn’t be happier right now.

It is no secret that I take accessible transportation to work for now. When my smoke Dr. gets here I won’t have to but for now I do. Today the assigned pick up time was 6:04 AM I had to get up at 4:45 AM and found myself at work by 620 needless to say when I got home around four I was exhausted and still am. I think it is apparent hell ridiculous some of these pick up times are and yet I understand why they have to be that early you but there should be a limit as to how early they can be for a specific requested drop off time. No Falls today though so that’s a good thing. I can’t wait for my smart Dr. to be here and working so I don’t have to be so reliant on other people and their schedules and can…

OK, so let me adjust the title if you think this is going to be a nasty post, well I guess it could be but it’s not. So you can get that out of your mind right now. This is equally as terrifying that when my opinion. I was in the excessive most of all when somehow I tripped or something during my transfer and I fell on the floor and hit my entire right side. I didn’t hurt that much and I went on with my day. The only casualty was my nail! What I find both hilarious and sad is of course when I am not in need of help people are opening doors for trying to help me and then in this moment even after I cursed a couple of times no one asked me if I was OK or knocked on the door seeing if I…

I have always had to be reported that it’s a fact. For many people in my life it was not a big thing. I didn’t even consider it a thing until I entered my early 20s and started ageing with a disability. All of a sudden, fatigue became real and the ability to get around became more difficult. I’m now at a point in my life in which I would say I am my most authentic the best version of myself and really loving my life my movement is much different I can’t feel my thighs I can’t feel parts of my feet quite honestly the only thing I can feel with certainty is pain. I do not want sympathy I am not writing this blog series for that. I am simply being honest. And it sucks, especially now when it’s gloomy outside and your work computer is messing up…
