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
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!
My bad, I didn’t give November the welcome it deserves being a very important month. No, I’m not talking about thanksgiving, I’m talking about Epilepsy Awareness Month. This doesn’t mean that we need to take extra care of our epilepsy, we have to do that all year, but share our knowledge and news about epilepsy. … Continue reading Epilepsy Awareness Month 2017
After over a month the boxes my aunts sent my parents to help life after Hurricane Maria finally arrived. My mom was so happy with all the food, batteries, flashlights and solar chargers for cellphones and computers. Mail was already being delivered but when they still hadn’t received any packages I thought they had been … Continue reading One step at a time
So look at what I found today: I think it was just sitting around in that Hobby Lobby waiting for me to find it and of course I had to have it. The only thing better than that was finding another one that said María but that's asking for too much. Finding that just made … Continue reading We are unstoppable
I stopped my monthly count once I reached 2 years of being seizure free but today marks two and a half years seizure free and I think that deserves a recognition. It's not just two years anymore, it's over two years and I am so proud of that. There have been challenges since April like … Continue reading Two years and a half
Everyone on Puerto Rico is working hard to prepare for María and so are we. Everything is ready to go to my brother's house. Just like I did for Irma, I will be Tweeting in real time for as long as I have wi-fi. Stay tuned to @unstoppablemar1 to see how we're dealing with this … Continue reading Hurricane María
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!
Today I found a blog post from two years ago. This was about a job interview, one that didn't go well because I didn't get it; I don't even remember what job it was. This two years later and I'm still in the same place, nervous after job interviews, doubting if the interview yesterday went … Continue reading One more job interview
I have a question primarily for other brain injury survivors but if anyone else feels like they have something to say, you are welcome to answer. As I have said before, I'm having a lot of trouble finding a job, I have been to a lot of interviews and applied to even more jobs but … Continue reading Five years is enough
Looking back to my blog post on June 14, 2015, I found that it was very short, pushing people to just keep moving. At the moment I was talking about walking, running, swimming, and I still encourage people to do this, but now I'm thinking I should get moving to do something with my life. … Continue reading Don’t give up, believe in yourself
Today, September 8th, 2016 we celebrate 17 months, seventeen seizure free months . It's been one year and 5 months! Only 7 months left to the full two years!!!! As it turns out my parents wanted to go out to dinner tonight, I didn't want to because I had been working from home and doing homework … Continue reading 17 months!
Remember that hike I talked about yesterday? Well, I have the proof, I got the pictures from my aunt so you can all see. It had been so long since a had been on a hike like that, in nature, not in a mall or theme park or anything like that; walking, in a forrest, … Continue reading Para la naturaleza artsy hike
It is May second, year 2016. Some people call it my second birthday, I sometimes do too, but today I call it the day. It is, or was, the day that changed me, and has defined the last... 4? Yes, that's right, four years of my life. Four years that seem like much more. Like … Continue reading 4 years later…
A few hours ago I completed my 6th 5k in a little over three years. It was a great accomplishment for me, not only because it was the sixth, and I did it all by myself, but because I beat my personal record time. If I remember correctly my fastest time had been 50 or 55 … Continue reading Personal record braking time in Walgreens 5k
