How does the song go, I love myself today, not like yesterday, I’m cool, I’m calm, I’m gonna be okay. Ah hah. Why do I say this, well because I got the best tattoo in the world yesterday and no I am not posting a picture here. Reason being I have seen people who post pictures of their tattoos get people copying there tattoos and I don’t really want that to happen. In all seriousness though, I will probably be posting pictures in the next few days I haven’t been able to take the picture I want yet though. Anyway, not what does blog post is about at all. I have found my favourite drink. Yes I am 28 years old and I am reading about a can of Soda. I recently discovered one of the grocery stores I get delivery from has started stalking pineapple crush So I got…

Well I feel a little bit like Rumpelstiltskin. Or sleeping beauty which ever one was the one who slept forever. But I really needed it, like I really needed it. I’m so glad I took time for myself this weekend and yet they seem to get everything that I wanted to done. Yay me. Sometimes things don’t have to be extravagant in order to be moments you were remember. On the same token moments and that become memories are often the ones that you don’t think about at the time. I’m glad I took the weekend to breathe and returns because tomorrow will be back to the grind and also sometimes it may seem Munding well we have to remember is that learning come in all shapes and sizes and that sometimes in the moments me think of mundane going to be mail moments eventually become Kodak moments in the…

If I learned anything today it isn’t that good things come when you least expect them. Do you have a plan for everything is to not truly live and to not have a plan for anything is to create chaos. Through my life people have come and gone and I have mourned the losses but I now realize that all of those people good and bad helped to shape the person I am.As I try to navigate this weird yet exciting life I live I look back and wonder about all those people the ones who supported me the ones who doubted me and the ones who couldn’t care less and what I noticed was good things come when you least expect when you’re just going about your life not caring. Then the universe Stephen and will give you something good bad ugly who knows but hopefully you can deal…

Sometimes it just works out that all you can and want to do is be lazy. I have chosen to embrace that today.

Well, my house was messy as it has ever been in a while today. Or at least my room was. I don’t normally leave it like this, But I had to run down to catch my ride to the mall. Where I bought a lot of things that I have been putting off for a very long time. The miraculous thing though is I went with someone I have been to the mall with before and it usually ends well but with some kind of memorable accident sometimes funny sometimes not so funny. But today everything seemed to go well. She seems to understand all of my knees didn’t make any backhanded insults disguised as compliments and we had a really good day. The mess only got worse once I got home with all of my purchases just to drop them off eat takeout food and go back to her house…

Today was one of those days that you are glad to see come to an end. Not because it was all bad, or because it went to slowly, just because of how emotionally charged it ended up being. When I started living in the moment I didn’t think it would change my life the way it has but especially today I started to see just tell many emotions one can go through in a day. I tried it for a moment I was happy for many moments frustrated for a few moments and contented in others in this moment I find myself very very tired. I’m not dissociating though which is a good thing. Some may say the ups and downs of emotions and having too many may be a bad thing but I feel like if you feel in control of yourself and our present with in your body…

Going in for surgery or procedure is stressful and scary. To those who think it’s not stop kidding yourself it is. Though we may not be able to control everything and we may not even have a choice in the matter. One thing we can Control is our mindset going into what is bound to be a stressful experience. Tip 1: Knowledge is Power Ask all your questions before hand to the medical team and or Doctor Who is going to be taking care of you. Don’t be afraid to ask these questions a good doctor should be able to make you feel comfortable and answer whatever questions you have in ways that you will understand them. But if you don’t understand something don’t be afraid to ask for clarification. If this is your first surgery let them know that. Most doctors, that I know of in that case will…

The most annoying thing about having Cerebral Palsy for me is The frustration that comes when you can tangibly understand how to do something but when your body goes to do it the movement or task does not come out as smooth if at all. I hope this video can give some insight into the emotional toll that something like this can be on someone. Imagine not being able to participate fully in family activities, or things with your friends. Maybe you can force yourself to do something with the best intentions but the entire time you are doing said well-intentioned thing, like an experience with your family or friends you have to put on a front. “It’s fine,” I can do this”.  Even though your body may protest. But because you do not want to miss out you go and do it anyway. I think this video just broaches to surface of…

People who  know me know that I am not the kind of person to turn to medication when treating illnesses. Whether are the common cold or something to do with my CP I usually will go the all-natural root or as natural as I can. That said I realize sometimes modern medicine is the best way to go and so after talking with my doctor, Cortizone shots, or at least trying to Cortizone shot, sounded like the best treatment to start with when treating my hip dysplasia. This was my first experience with anything like this and for that reason, I’m glad it happened the way it did. (next time I’ll be sure to take you in) I feel like this way with no time to think about it. In a way, I was less nervous. Which also meant I had less time to get worked up and stress about…

I know blogs are meant for writing but this case I thought a video was the most appropriate way to discuss this issue. They say a picture is worth 1000 words so a video must be worth a million. I hope this video gives you some insight into my experience over the past few months with my CP. By no means am I looking for pity, the opposite actually, this video is meant to show my process through one difficult decision that persons with disabilities sometimes have. If you are walking through something similar know that you are not alone and that the thoughts and feelings that you many be having or shared by many. Conversely, if you are a friend or family member of a person who is chronically ill or person with a disability I hope this video gives you a glimpse into what your loved one or friend might…
