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

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.

After Irma

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

Dealing with sensory hypersensitivity

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

What is it now?

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?
