As of right now I will attempt to read this book It's not a big deal until you look at it like this: Yes, that is 382 pages of text, no pictures or drawings.

I've been told many times to write things down so I will remember them like for example making a list of what I need from the pharmacy or what I need to tell my doctor. I don't need help with motivation to do things, I need to remember to do them. Sometimes I can't even … Continue reading My to-do lists
I did it, six years ago I learned how to walk again. If you ask me today how I did it I can only say I did it with a lot of hard work and a even more patience. It takes a lot of persistence, desire to move forward and even more faith in yourself. … Continue reading You can get back up again
