We are unstoppable 

So look at what I found today:  I think it was just sitting around in that Hobby Lobby waiting for me to find it and of course I had to have it. The only thing better than that was finding another one that said María but that's asking for too much.  Finding that just made … Continue reading We are unstoppable 

Two years and a half

There have been challenges since April like … Continue reading Two years and a half

This isn’t me

I have a few saved drafts on my blog that I never published but for some reason never deleted. I don't remember then I wrote any of them but I think reading them again helps me see how much I've changed and grown through this whole process.

Five years is enough

May the force be with us

I have a pretty cool epilepsy t-shirt, but I saw this today  shared by Wearing Purple for my Love, on Facebook and I thought it was just awesome. I think these epilepsy t-shirts help show that epilepsy is nothing to mess with, but if we're strong, we can beat it. I think the force can help … Continue reading May the force be with us

A day without a smartphone

I know that most people I know who still didn't have power, got it back sometime between last night and this morning but there are still over 17,000 people without light or power in their homes or businesses.These people are … Continue reading A day without a smartphone

One small step for me, one giant step for TBI rehab

I had been lucky to always have somebody to drive me or cross the avenue with me, … Continue reading One small step for me, one giant step for TBI rehab
