Quarantine sleep anxiety

I have been dealing with the quarantine pretty well. I don’t really mind, as I’ve said before. I have been exercising, working a little bit, cooking and I’ve done all of this without being rushed. But I started to feel a little anxiety last week when I noticed I was falling asleep later every night. … Continue reading Quarantine sleep anxiety

Brain Injury and social distancing

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

We survived the first week

Well, we did it, we survived the first week in isolation. Congratulations! Now, it's the weekend and we have nowhere to go because we still can't go out. It's Sunday and we can't go grocery shopping, I mean some people go but we really shouldn't, can't go to the movies or out for that Sunday … Continue reading We survived the first week

Our new stationary bike

A couple of years ago I took a spinning class at the gym for a while. It was a lot of fun and a great workout but I hadn't done spinning or been on an exercise bike since I stopped the gym. In fact, I haven't even ridden a real bicycle in over ten years. … Continue reading Our new stationary bike

Don’t ignore pain, it just makes it worse

Today was my third therapy session for that back pain, which has gotten better and hurts less than it did before. I was really hoping it would be gone by Sunday so it wouldn't bother at the Ricky Martin concert. Unfortunately it still bothered me and the seats at the coliseum didn't help but Ricky … Continue reading Don’t ignore pain, it just makes it worse

Back pain therapy

Today I had a therapy session to take care of my back pain. Just like I'm always told when I have back pain, where I feel it is not the only place my muscles are tense. As the therapist massaged my back it didn't just hurt on the right side, but my left side and … Continue reading Back pain therapy

Happy New Year!

I can't end the year without thanking everyone for reading and/or following my blog and for liking what I post. This means the world to me and makes me so happy. I hope you stay with me in this new year as I keep expressing myself. I also hope you all have a fresh start … Continue reading Happy New Year!

So tired but have to keep going

So far October has been exhausting for me; I have been working a lot, which is great but I haven't had time to relax and sit down and write. I feel like I have been working extremely long hours every day this week but I have only been working for seven hours. That is one … Continue reading So tired but have to keep going

Third governor in five days

An update on what's been going on in Puerto Rico: Naming Pedro Pierluisi governor was inconstitucional so he has to go. Now that that's taken care of, our new governor is the ex Secretary of Justice, Wanda Vazquez. No one wants her because of many reasons but according to our constitution sadly, she is next … Continue reading Third governor in five days

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

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

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

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

Seven years later…

I didn't think about it, but writing this brings a lot of old feelings back. I can't help but look back at the last seven years of my life, at least what I can remember of them and the worst moments come to mind. From that very first memory that always makes me sad and … Continue reading Seven years later…
