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’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

Painting and cooking

Having an apartment all to myself is a lot of work, more work than I thought. I knew that after all the work we did this summer it wouldn't be over yet, I still needed to do somethings to finish, like painting my bathroom door. I had been avoiding that for days because something always … Continue reading Painting and cooking

I’m home!!!

I'm happy to say that right now I'm writing from the comfort of the living room in my new apartment! I moved in yesterday and as much as I wanted to tell everyone about it, I was too tired by the time I stopped trying to organize. The movers first went to our old apartment … Continue reading I’m home!!!

Hard work continues

After a brief break from the remodeling, we got some work done today. It wasn't much, but I felt like I actually knew what I was doing, so my mom and I were trying to finish putting together one of the Ikea cabinets for my kitchen. Everything went well after I moved some screws that … Continue reading Hard work continues

More color!

Now we're painting another room, a bigger room. We started today but didn't finish painting the living room/kitchen. We painted about half of it, maybe a little more and started putting together my kitchen cabinets. This means my kitchen is partly done, I have a stove and a cabinet without doors, drawers or counter top. … Continue reading More color!

Focus T25: Beta

I made it through the first five weeks of Focus T-25! Those first five weeks were the Alpha version, which I supposed were a little bit easier than the second part of the program, which is Beta. Today I started the five weeks of Beta and I was right, this second part is harder. It's … Continue reading Focus T25: Beta

Can’t keep getting distracted

Since I started my new job, tutoring, I have left writing my book aside. I did not do that consciously, I just noticed on my visit to the psychiatrist this week. I sent what I had done since I got another idea about how to write it but, I haven't done much with it and … Continue reading Can’t keep getting distracted

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!

#NoBillNoBreak

I have been kind off covering this story on a few of my previews posts, and today it got more interesting, but I won't stop until they vote. Right now democrat representatives are staging a sit-in, refusing to leave the house of representatives until they have reached a vote on gun control.  These are news … Continue reading #NoBillNoBreak

And my neurologist said…

As I said this morning, my appointment with my neurologist was this afternoon.  After sitting in the crowded waiting room, and waiting, quickly writing and posting another blog post, and waiting a little bit more, they called my name to go see him. When my doctor came in, after saying all the hellos, I quickly … Continue reading And my neurologist said…

Be proud of yourself and take it easy

You have been seizure free for eleven months. You feel like you will never have another seizure. But then you get dizzy. You get up, and you feel something in your head, like a little headache. But you just had lunch so you’re not hungry. You just had diet coke so you should be awake. … Continue reading Be proud of yourself and take it easy

#100milewalk, it’s a challenge, really

Since February 15th, I have been keeping count of how many miles I walk every day. I have been posting this every night before going to bed, but I had no idea how many miles I had walked so far, to complete the #100milewalkteamsusie challenge.
