Thanks to everyone who helped me celebrate my birthday, from just wishing me a Happy Birthday on a text message or social media, calling me or by helping me celebrate. I had a wonderful birthday weekend at the beach with my friends, a great day at work and an even better dinner with family. The … Continue reading Happy Birthday!
My TBI was officially one decade ago. When I think about it like that, a whole decade, it seems like an eternity but 10 years is a long time, even if sometime it may not seem that way. A lot has happened during these last ten years, not just my recovery. Ten years ago, I … Continue reading Ten years after my TBI
I didn’t waste any time looking for a new workout program after I finished the four month PiYo program last week. I quickly started the PiYo/T25 Hybrid calendar and I really enjoy the mix of these two programs. I like having the intense T25 workouts combined with the low impact PiYo workouts. Having to do … Continue reading PiYo/T25 Hybrid
Today I finished all four months of PiYo. This low impact program combines benefits from both Pilates and Yoga. It was something new to me and a little different than what I was used to but I quickly learned and enjoyed it. It was nothing too difficult but not too easy either. It was definitely … Continue reading Finished PiYo!
Today I began week 16 of PiYo, the last week of the program. I can’t believe I have been found this for 16 weeks. After four months of this high intensity, low impact routine, I’m used to the workouts and feel comfortable with most of the moves but I’m tired. I’m very tired today because … Continue reading Last week of PiYo
This week I was writing an article for a magazine called SOLApreneurs Magazine. This is a new magazine in Puerto Rico. For my first article I got to do an interview, which I loved. I had so much fun in the whole process, not just writing but interviewing and doing research. Don’t get me wrong, … Continue reading My first article
As of yesterday, April 8, 2022, I am officially seven years seizure free! I didn’t have time to write a celebratory blog post like I do every year but that doesn’t mean I was not happy of telling everyone I could about it. I almost thought I didn’t make it earlier this week when because … Continue reading 7 years seizure free!
The FDA just approved the sale of lacosamide tablets, which is the generic name for the anti-seizure medication, Vimpat. This is the medication that finally controlled my seizures and the one that I had trouble getting because of its cost. I hope that now that the FDA approved the sale of lacosamide it will be … Continue reading Lacomaside (Generic Vimpat) was approved by the FDA
Just started the last month of PiYo today. Just four more left in this program but I’m thinking about doing one of the hybrid workouts when I’m done. There are two hybrid workouts, one is PiYo and P90X, the other is PiYo and T25. I might do the se Indy one, PiYo and T25 but … Continue reading Just one moth of PiYo left
Now that I finished another week of PiYo, I decided to look at the calendar to see what to expect in the next five weeks. If I’m being honest, I have to say I just got a little scared. I have already done a lot of what’s left at least once but there are still … Continue reading I made it to week 12 of PiYo!
I got my EEG results today. I wanted the results to show that there was absolutely no seizure activity anymore so I could be taken off the anti seizure medication. I knew that wasn’t going to happen so I just hoped for something more realistic like it not getting worse. The EEG showed just that; … Continue reading EEG results- Still seizure free!
I was forced to take a day off of PiYo for an EEG today. This is the 24 hour test where 24 electrodes are placed on my head for 24 hours to track and record brain wave patterns. The abnormal patterns show problems,which in my case are seizures. I always dread having this done, but … Continue reading Tracking my brain wave patterns for 24 hours
