I made up my mind yesterday, I was going to continue doing the Insanity workout program today. I even did the fit test yesterday so I was ready to start and I was even going to be able to do it earlier that usual. Everything seemed to be in place, except the power went out … Continue reading Who would have thought nine years ago I’d be doing this today?
After three months and a half, I’m almost at the end of Insanity Max:30. With only two weeks left, I can’t help but think back to the moment I decided to start this and wonder, what was I thinking? I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into, but I’m glad I didn’t because … Continue reading Just two weeks to go!
In March I got the big surprise that the pharmacy that had been providing me with both anti epilepsy medication for the past six years, would no longer be able to help me with the most expensive one of the two medicines I need. Why? Because suddenly my health insurance decided to provide coverage for … Continue reading I couldn’t afford to control my seizures anymore
I did it again! I finished another month of Shaun T’s crazy workout programs. But that was only the first month of this program, I still have three moths to go. I have to be optimistic and think that I can do it because if I don’t, I don’t think I will be able to … Continue reading One month of Insanity Max: 30
Today marks nine years since my TBI. Some say it’s kind of my birthday but I’m not sure that’s what it is; it caused a new beginning, that’s for sure, but I don’t feel like it’s appropriate to say it’s birthday. Birth is a happy moment and there was nothing happy about this day nine … Continue reading Nine years
Yesterday I get a bombshell dropped on me, the pharmaceutical company that has been providing me my epilepsy medicine for over four years won’t cover my most expensive medicine anymore.
When my neurologist tells me I need to get another electroencephalogram, I feel a little anxious. I don’t like the thought of having cables glued to my scalp for a whole day and not being able to do anything but stay home, anyway I have to get the EEG. They use this to detect electrical … Continue reading My latest electroencephalogram
Right now I think it’s one of those times where having something to focus on and distract yourself is very important. I have found two things, exercise and writing. I think that’s what’s keeping me sane right now with all these horrible Covid19 news. I don’t write about Covid anymore like I did in the … Continue reading Exercising to stay sane
Today we walked more than we did on Thursday and we finished our walk faster. Next time we’re aiming to walk a little more, maybe like 2.30 miles. It’s not a lot more but if we increase little by little we can get to three miles pretty soon. I also managed to do 25 more … Continue reading Doing better every day
Even though Thursday is usually the hardest day of the week at work for me, I’ve completed my second week of running with my coworkers after work on a Thursday. I thought it was going to be easier this week because I already knew what I was getting myself into and because I have been … Continue reading Running on Thursdays
I can’t expect to have a great workout everyday or for every week to be as successful as the last because that’s just not realistic. What I can do is do the best I can everyday. Some days that will mean an hour on the treadmill, workout videos and more time on the treadmill, while … Continue reading This is the best I can do today
I can’t help but be impressed by the amazing things TBI survivors do. The most recent one I found out about is ABC journalist Bob Woodruff. Bob suffered a serious injury in Iraq in 2006. He was there covering the Palestinian elections and was later visiting the troops. He and Doug Vogt, camera man, were … Continue reading Rogue Trip
Eight years! Who thought eight years ago today I would be, well stuck at home all day? Ok yeah, maybe some people thought that might be the case, but it wouldn’t have been for the same reason. I don’t think eight years ago anybody thought we would be quarantined and dealing with a pandemic. Who … Continue reading Eight years!
We are just ending our second week of isolation in Puerto Rico on Monday and were told last night by the governor that we will be in isolation for two more weeks, until April 12. She also announced that the rules will be more strict during these next two weeks with the curfew starting earlier, … Continue reading Brain Injury and social distancing
Working from home is not as easy as we would have hoped but with the Coronavirus virus Outbreak we have to. This is a little inconvenient for those like me who don’t have their own desk but still tried to find a comfortable place to work. You will finally find a place through trial an … Continue reading Working from home
