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
Is Strength Training or Cardio Better for Fat Loss? This was interesting. I thought we could get those muscles from just doing cardio, and strength training was so we could lift stuff. Strength training always seemed like it was for people who wanted to be Superman, people who wanted to have big muscles. I was … Continue reading Strength? Cardio?
Neurologists want the public to take epilepsy more seriously If this doesn't scare me into paying more attention when I take my medicines, I don't know what will. I have only switched the morning dose with the nightly dose twice, and only missed one dose in over three years, but I still have to be … Continue reading We have to take epilepsy seriously
Ten months ago I decided I wanted people to read what I was writing, so I started a blog. I thought I would only write a few times a month, and just so people close to me could read it, I didn't think anyone else would be interested. But people were interested, so I kept … Continue reading Good bye 2015
I think we have all noticed that everyday people are spending more time looking at their mobile devices than at other people, or the world around them. If you haven’t, it’s probably because you have been looking at your phone. This not only takes you away from he real world, the world around you, but … Continue reading Better posture = better mood
I wanted this to be a happy Christmas, but it doesn't look like it when everyday I wake up seeing news about another mass shooting. According to the New York Times Daily Briefing, "Records show that, on average, there is a mass shooting every day in the U.S." If this isn't alarming to U.S. citizens, … Continue reading Love and peace
I have a little problem now. I'm having trouble knowing when people are being serious and when they're joking. I get angry at people, and then it turns out they were just kidding. There was nothing to be mad about. I thought it was better and I was getting the hang of it again, I … Continue reading I went too far
I am 6 months, going on 7, seizure free; but that doesn't change the fact that I have epilepsy, and this is a very scary thing. It's the ongoing fear that you can have a seizure. Today, at around 5 pm, I was really tired and I didn't know why. I had just finished tutoring … Continue reading I fear the seizures
We always focus on the big things, not on that little moments leading up to that big moment. They can be just as great, or make that big moment more special because you saw all the work that was put into it. For example, being able to complete your degree, or ace a class. Enjoying … Continue reading It’s the little things that make the difference
I am Unstoppable Maria, I don't quit when I fail, when I fall or when something gets difficult. I just keep trying. Never give up, just go for what you want. Get up when you fall.

I'm trying to do better. Starting a class and a few days away from a great achievement. I am so happy and will be happier on Thursday night.
Never say this is too hard, I’m tired, I don’t want to try anymore, this is not fair, I quit. All those thoughts ran through my mind once or twice in the past few years, but I never let them stay there. That’s just what they were, random thoughts. The one’s that stuck around and … Continue reading I thought this was only gonna be a once a week thing, but why limit myself?
