November is an important month, not because the holiday season starts soon or because we eat turkey, because it's epilepsy awareness month. There are a lot of activities happening around the world to teach people about epilepsy and to help people who suffer from it. I want to welcome November, like I always do, offering … Continue reading Epilepsy Awareness Month
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
Last week marked the first year since Hurricane María and we have all been looking back at how our lives and our home changed after María. Here in Puerto Rico we now talk about our lives in terms of before María and after María. But last week we were all thinking about what really changed … Continue reading Puerto Rico after Hurricane María – A year later
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
On December 2, 2016 I wrote about not having a job this Christmas in a post called Christmas without a job. I tried all year to not end the year without a job, but I'm sad to say I had no luck. What's even sadder is that this year I never had a job, unlike … Continue reading Come on Unstoppable María!
Today I decided to make rice and beans again, this time with the ingredients I forgot last time to add flavor; I added cubitos and sazón. These two gave it that extra little bit of flavor it needed and it tasted just like it did when I used to make it five years ago. This … Continue reading Rice and Beans: Take 2
I'm almost done with my first project, which has taken como close to 24 hours, of course not all on one day. In this first project I have learned how to make my own map on Google Maps, how to use Streetview and how to watermark photos. This is a lot of work, but I'm … Continue reading Almost done
Today let's talk about two people; Susie and Carlos, my manager and my motivator. These two have been in my life for about 16 years, since they have been friends with my mom. Susie and Carlos have become part of our family, joining my family during holidays and birthdays, and we are always there for each … Continue reading Susie and Carlos
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
I have to keep going on about this because this is just a logical thing, don't put guns in the hands of citizens, even if they're law abiding citizens, or appear to be. You don't know whose hands the gun is going to end up, or where the bullet will end up. Republicans say carrying … Continue reading Say no to guns
Today, too many people continue to defend the indefensible. There are a series of issues in play here, but the United States of America has an undeniable problem with gun violence. How many more lives need to be lost before we do something about lax gun laws? How can a person previously tied to terrorism … Continue reading Gun control, now!
In a few hours I will have to start telling people I'm a year older, I already got the dreaded question; how old? Come on!!! Really? I said it, but it just sounds weird saying it. I do feel great because I already went out to celebrate with my favorite food. but tomorrow when I wake … Continue reading Talk about it
Well I'm glad we are allowed, because at least one person in the world should think I'm strong, and I think I am. I know people have seen everything I have done in the past few years, I'm still working on it, I'm not done. I think I'm masterpiece, but I don't know if they … Continue reading Masterpiece and work in progress
These past few weeks I have been taking some tests to check how much I have improved through the year. I have taken these set of tests twice already since the accident, and I haven't really felt very good about my improvement this year. I felt like I wasn't doing well when it came to … Continue reading Remember, please
Today, we begin March, or Brain Injury Awareness Month. Because of this, I would like to dedicate all, or most of my blog posts to sharing information about TBI or other brain injuries. A brain injury is not something that just happened to me, this is something that we all should be aware of. There … Continue reading National Brain Injury Awareness Month
