My second annual appointment with the neurologist was today. I’m always exited for these because I always have good news and he’s always very happy about how well I’m doing, but today, the tables were turned.
I was doing very well, he was asking about my driving and it was decided that I would practice driving on the weekends and not on highways, for now. I was so happy I felt like he was on my side and I really enjoyed the part he said about no one telling me what to do, until he turned to me and said I can’t ask for help with directions or what I had to do next. That was a big shock, I thought he was on my side but as much as he wants me to be independent, he also has to keep me safe.
We set a plan once again, but this time we will follow through, I will make sure of that. I can’t go back there and tell him I’m still not driving. I’ve been doing great on everything else; no seizures, always super responsible with my medicine and all the medical exams say I’m healthy. I just need that one last thing. But I’m glad he keeps asking about that, if he didn’t I think maybe I would forget and probably never try to drive again. He’s always on my side even for a second it felt like he wasn’t.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
