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
I'll begin this post by sharing something I wrote last week but forgot to post. Yesterday I got on a plane again, this time coming to Boston to spend Christmas with Jose's sisters. This is a new experience because I don't think I have ever spent Christmas away from home but it will still be … Continue reading Christmas in Boston
Last night I saw Puerto Rico from the airplane as I came back home. It was hard to tell were we were because I only saw little patches of light, I couldn't tell we were already flying over Puerto Rico.I knew we were here when I saw the metropolitan area in San Juan, most of … Continue reading I’m home!

The second was poster on my other blog, My dogs and me. … Continue reading That time I made a cushion
We had a plan, my aunt and me, we were going to make some feeding placemats for my dogs. We began this process last week when we spent a couple of hours at the store just deciding what fabrics we would use. After that we just needed to pick a day we had time to … Continue reading My first sewing project
This morning I had an appointment with my neurologist to discuss those episodes I have had and the result of the EEG. I'll be honest with you, I was terrified that he would say they found something weird in my brain activity meaning he would need to increase the epilepsy medication dose and I was … Continue reading EEG results are in
I got home today after spending a few hours getting lunch and trying to charge my phone thinking my apartment would still be the sauna it was this morning, maybe even more hot. I came in, congratulated my dogs for not braking or destroying ANYTHING and went on to put my purse in my room. … Continue reading Power’s back!
Yesterday, my parents, my dogs and I left our apartment seeking safety during hurricane Irma in my grandparents' house. Their house is almost like a bunker, we knew we would be safe there and didn't want anyone to be alone during such a strong hurricane; we were preparing for the worst. By the time San … Continue reading After Irma
It has recently become a little difficult walking my dogs because, as I explained in the post Stronger harnesses on my new blog, Indy and Sandy's leaches broke again and now we are using a collar/chocker. This is a regular collar but the leach ties to a chocker like net that, when pulled, acts like … Continue reading Dealing with sensory hypersensitivity
One of our routes while walking our dogs include crossing an avenue. We cross it on a curve where it's clearly marked for crossing and where we can see if cars are coming. I always take my time making sure there are no cars coming or that a car has stopped to let us cross. … Continue reading Facing my fears
A few weeks ago, someone in my building complained about me having two dogs, even though my dogs have been with me for eight months and she has seen them multiple times. We had to get a letter from my psychiatrist explaining their purpose in my therapy. This week, another neighbor complained to the building … Continue reading What is it now?

Everyone is dreading having to start getting up early again and going back to work, for me it's back to staying home with my dogs all day. I'm waiting … Continue reading Bye bye summer
When my dogs, Indy and Sandy, have energy there really isn't much we can do. We can make them calm down, but I have to let my mean side come out and I don't like them to see that side of me. This morning they were pretty energetic, even though they had already been out … Continue reading My canine nurses
