Today I am officially six years seizure free! On top of that, I got my second Covid19 vaccine this afternoon. I think that … Continue reading Vaccinated and seizure free!

Five years seizure free!

This morning I had an appointment with my neurologist over the phone. I was anxiously waiting for this appointment because today he would give me the results of the EEG I had in December. He didn’t mention anything at first, which I was sure was a good sign, but I still wanted to know so … Continue reading Five years seizure free!

A new Puerto Rico

Yesterday was another historic day for Puerto Rico. We still haven't gotten the governor to resign but Puerto Ricans have come together like never before, to get him out of here. There have been protests for about 10 days straight, since the nasty chat conversation was first leaked. These protests have not just been held … Continue reading A new Puerto Rico

You can get back up again

I did it, six years ago I learned how to walk again. If you ask me today how I did it I can only say I did it with a lot of hard work and a even more patience. It takes a lot of persistence, desire to move forward and even more faith in yourself. … Continue reading You can get back up again

I was finally standing

Every year, on October 31 I come around this great memory. This was one of my proudest days during rehabilitation. I had been working hard for months I was still not able do do anything by myself, when after six months, I was able to stand. That's it, standing, which now I take for granted … Continue reading I was finally standing

I’m just happy to be ok

This is the best way to show how angry I was six years ago, while I was still in the first stages of my recovery and I saw no way out. There were dark moments, like when I wrote this status update, when I would hit rock bottom, I was angry and would take it … Continue reading I’m just happy to be ok

My bathroom is done!

This week, I waited anxiously as the plumbers and tile people worked to finish my bathroom. One day the finished the tiles, another they installed my shower, then my toilet and vanity. It took forever and finally today, they finished my faucet. We knew he would have it ready today so we were ready to … Continue reading My bathroom is done!

Cooking in MY kitchen

Now that my new kitchen is almost ready, I have to start getting used to cooking again. As I’ve mentioned before, using the stove or oven was prohibited for me after the accident because of the epilepsy. Also, I don't want to think about what would have happened if I ever left the stove or … Continue reading Cooking in MY kitchen

Two days of independence

This weekend I was finally trusted to spend two nights at home by myself. It wasn't safe for me to stay alone before in case I had a seizure, but being over three years seizure free, I earned the trust to spend a weekend by myself. I wasn't alone, I had my dogs. I spent … Continue reading Two days of independence

Happy Mother’s Day

Today I want to take the chance to, once again, thank my mom for always being there for us (my brother and me), through the good and the bad and never, ever letting us down. We disagree sometimes, she gets nervous when I drive, but some people don't even want to get in the car … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day

Two years and a half

I stopped my monthly count once I reached 2 years of being seizure free but today marks two and a half years seizure free and I think that deserves a recognition.  It's not just two years anymore, it's over two years and I am so proud of that. There have been challenges since April like … Continue reading Two years and a half
