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…

The moment you realize you know more about your smart drive then the technician sent to fix your issue. The conversation literally goes: Him: Oh so it’s not charging? Is the battery dead you just need to charge it. Me: [No Dah idiot] Me out loud: it won’t change that’s the problem. Him: oh how do I fix that? Me:[Face Palm] Me out loud: you’re the technician! *As he googles on his phone* Him: Oh well this is new

Don’t mess with me and my chariot. I will run over your toes and have no qualms about it. [Also, my legs may not work like yours do you, but my ears work better. Don’t whisper about me. I can hear you. That’s the one thing I hate over all else. That’s also the first way to get on my bad side] I recognize that everyone has their own challenges, and that your stress is it exactly that you’re stress. This means just because you’re stressed doesn’t mean I need to be stressed too. People need to slow down, take a breath and think a minute. It may actually help you.

What a day it has been. I can’t begin to explain how lucky I am to have such lovely supportive people in my life. With all the change going on lately I have been having an interesting time to say the very least. Things are starting to change for the better and I’m trying to roll with the punches. Which has been hard at times, I will admit but one of the many things which has kept me going is this blog and being accountable to posting. A daily post has become part of my routine. A day without posting seems so foreign to me now. In many ways this blog has become more than a quote a day, or a place to vent, it has become my one constant, the one thing I can count on everyday. Accomplishing this 365 days of posting seems still unfathomable to me I…

Wow. When I started this I couldn’t imagine actually finishing it. Tomorrow this series will end and on Thursday a new one, nightmares from the chair, will begin. This is Another daily venture, exploring the sometime is funny, sometimes terrifying, sometimes educational situations I find myself being on a daily basis complete with my actual internal dialogue. This series will not be for the faint of heart. This blog series will include course language. In the interest of full disclosure. Anyway, I still have two more days of this blog series. So, I find myself fresh Out of tears and maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe it means that I am actually going to get over having to move on. If you’re lost you’re not the only one. Long story short, I have a very good friend who is moving and I won’t be able to see her as often…

I wish I had more fun stuff to talk about but I really spent this weekend relaxing and recuperating trying to get back to myself. I have needed to ground and look within for a while now and I have not been able to do that. For a variety of excuses none of which are really relevant. I have resolved to make it a priority though because I know I feel better when I cleanse and ground on a regular basis and if this is something I can control in regards to how I feel why wouldn’t I. As it is victoria day today (In Canada) most of us had the day off of work so I was able to sleeping although for me sleeping in is getting up at six now but I was able to just do nothing all day and feel good about it. My only accomplishment…

The last few days have been pretty tough for me so when I saw this I knew I had to post it because my first reaction was I couldn’t have said it better myself. I needed to see this and I’m sure others will benefit as well.

There is no denying it, today What’s a bad day. I’m still sad. And I know tomorrow will be different but in this moment the only thing that went right today what is the fact that I had 3/2 eaten pints of ice cream in my freezer. I now only have one. The best part of my day was finishing off both mint chip and cookies and cream ice cream. Not all at once. I was bliss. My legs are still tight but I did manage to get them stretched for a minute or two today and that felt good. And it’s worth it if not only for 15 minutes of looseness. Fellow CP lifers you get me. The third thing that went well today Dash I was able to get a trip to my tailor to hopefully make me some wraps/capes /ponchos. I have a very large collection of…

I am going to make a change. I am going to cry more. During my depression and for as many years as I can remember before that. I was and still am a very sensitive person. I could cry at the drop of a hat. Since working through my depression and getting into the appropriate therapies I don’t cry as much. which I thought was a good thing. Today though I realize it may be good, I don’t cry about every little thing, but, I still need to let myself cry. So I’m giving myself time every week or two to sit with any emotions I may be experiencing and see what comes of it. I have now realized what everyone what has been telling me for a while. I always knew this and I never thought of crying this way, but people say crying is okay, even needed. And…

so simple and yet so profound. I think the message here is something we all would do well to remember. I will also say, shining is one thing. Having the courage to shine is another. Knowing that you may have work to do but you are still worth it is something that I as well as I’m sure many people struggle with.This really resonated with me and will be in affirmation I end up printing out and putting on my wall. Because, “You do you do not have to be whole to shine.” There are so many ways I could take this quotemetaphorically in a mental way as well as physically. We often think of ‘pretty normal people’ at least that is what is portrayed in the media so that is where we are conditioned to think of as beautiful as whole as what we should aspire to as people.…
