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

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

Get support and give support

I think one of the many things that can help you heal from whatever situation you're going through is charing your experience and talking to other people. You never know how many others are out there going through the same thing and are ready to share their experience with you and help. I was reminded … Continue reading Get support and give support

Black out, again

Today is day two of being without bower in my house, again. This happened after a power transformer exploded yesterday morning. Some floors have power but others, like mine, don't. I hope tomorrow they are able to fix this because I have some exiting news to share, trying to write it from my phone wasn't … Continue reading Black out, again

March for our lives

Yesterday's demonstration to enforce gun control in the  U.S. was a demonstration of strength and courage from students, parents, teachers and all the people who want a change. We have all just had enough of mass shootings, of being scared to even go to school, and the success of this demonstration was something worth noticing … Continue reading March for our lives

I just stood there

I thought I was over the whole "crossing the street" thing, but nope, I can't do it. I was about to cross the street when I just froze on the sidewalk. I couldn't do it. I saw the cars coming, I thought I had enough time to get across, but I couldn't move. I was … Continue reading I just stood there

Today I have a lot to say, but I almost didn't say it because power went out at about noon today. It was returned to some areas early and it is supposed to last up to 16 hours. I'm glad to say the power came back to my house as I after 9.00 pm. Apart … Continue reading Driving lessons- Day 3

Start the conversation

Having epilepsy is not easy, but I have learned that I have to be brave when talking about it, I have to bring it up and I have to tell people. I bring it up and I'm not afraid to because that's just a part of my new normal, living with epilepsy. I know people … Continue reading Start the conversation

Last minute interview

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 

Hurricane María 

Everyone on Puerto Rico is working hard to prepare for María and so are we. Everything is ready to go to my brother's house. Just like I did for Irma, I will be Tweeting in real time for as long as I have wi-fi.  Stay tuned to @unstoppablemar1 to see how we're dealing with this … Continue reading Hurricane María 

Smile!

Two and a half years ago I finally allowed an orthodontist to put braces on me. It had been a battle with dentists my whole life, I hate the feeling of people working with my teeth but at last I said ok, let's do it. That was a very brave moment for me, a moment … Continue reading Smile!
