Medications and hot weather

Yesterday I went to see my neurologist but it was just a routine appointment. Like always he was happy to hear that nothing has happened, no seizures. I did have to talk to him about an incident I had last night with my pills. I keep all ten of them in a weekly pill container … Continue reading Medications and hot weather

I won’t give up, I’m doing the best I can

As I mentioned last week I started Focus T-25 for the second time. I'm only half way into a 10 routine and during my workout I was wondering why I'm doing this to myself. This thought often comes to mind when I get tired, when I want to stop, but I keep pushing myself because … Continue reading I won’t give up, I’m doing the best I can

My long weekend at the beach

As I said last time, I was spending this weekend at the beach. I had been waiting for this for months and after patiently waiting I finally got the chance to go to the beach, not one, but two days. On the first day, (you can read about it on Back at the beach) we rented a … Continue reading My long weekend at the beach

Back at the beach

I'm exhausted tonight, but it's okay because it was a great day. Today being this tired means I had a great time. I got the chance to get away and enjoy this long weekend away from San Juan at my family's beach house. It has been so long since I have been to the beach … Continue reading Back at the beach

Focus T-25: Here we go again

A year ago today I finished all ten weeks of Focus-T25 and I was so proud of myself. I spent a whole year thinking about doing it all over again but always gave up on the idea, until today. When I saw that it had already been a year, I just thought what are you … Continue reading Focus T-25: Here we go again

I don’t have an excuse for working hard

I've had a pretty busy couple of weeks for different reasons and in addition to that it's been very, very hot here in Puerto Rico, like you're still sweating while the air conditioner is on. Today I think I reached my limit and I started working out, doing the same video I have been doing … Continue reading I don’t have an excuse for working hard

I forgot this morning

I just realized what a huge mistake I made staying in bed this morning after I turned off my alarm. In my head, I turned it off, got up, took my medicine which include B6, Folic Acid, Ritalin, Zoloft, and most importantly one doze of Vimpat. That is the most important one in the morning … Continue reading I forgot this morning

The best thing I did was to stay positive

Today I'm doing what I do most days, reading my old blog post that I see in my memories on Facebook or Timehop, but today I thought I should do more than share one of them. This post is from June 14, 2017, just two years ago that feel like a million. https://unstoppablemaria.com/2017/06/14/dont-give-up-believe-in-yourself/Don’t give up, … Continue reading The best thing I did was to stay positive

Wake up call

Today has been seven years since the day I officially woke up from the coma, the first day I showed any sign of acknowledging the people around me. I don't remember any of this but I was also probably thinking what is going's on? Where am I? I think all I could do was look … Continue reading Wake up call

Hello summer

Happy first official day of summer and beginning of hurricane season. I know the second one doesn't bring anyone any joy and summer is bitter sweet because it is so hot outside. Well, outside, inside, everywhere; it's even hot with air conditioning. We all knew the nice weather we had been having in Puerto Rico … Continue reading Hello summer

Becoming

Today I finished reading Becoming by Michelle Obama, and I have to say it deserves all the great reviews it got. I was curious about reading it but I honestly didn't think it would be that interesting because well, I don't like politics. What's great about it is, she doesn't talk about politics, it's not … Continue reading Becoming

Hello Alexa

My birthday present, the Echo dot, finally arrived. It's late because Amazon wouldn't send it to Puerto Rico, but there are always ways around the whole not delivering to your area thing. It takes more time to have it delivered to a family member in the states and having them send it to you but … Continue reading Hello Alexa

Happy Birthday to me!

Today I have another reason to celebrate, this time I'm celebrating because yesterday was my birthday. I always love my birthday no matter how old I am. I still feel like a child when it's my birthday; this year I had to act like an adult because I was at work but my boss and … Continue reading Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Mother’s Day

First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all mothers. We couldn't be alive without you, like, literally. Thank you for everything else you do, after we get to this crazy world. From changing our disgusting diapers to teaching us how to walk, then drive and sorry for wrecking the car (we all did at one … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day
