Driving at night

Ok so I haven't been writing about my driving anymore because I have just been driving a few times on weekends. It's been no big deal, but they do trust me with the new car, with supervision of course. I still can't take a car by myself, but today was another step forward, as I … Continue reading Driving at night

Get support and give support

I think one of the many things that can help you heal from whatever situation you're going through is charing your experience and talking to other people. You never know how many others are out there going through the same thing and are ready to share their experience with you and help. I was reminded … Continue reading Get support and give support

Black out, again

Today is day two of being without bower in my house, again. This happened after a power transformer exploded yesterday morning. Some floors have power but others, like mine, don't. I hope tomorrow they are able to fix this because I have some exiting news to share, trying to write it from my phone wasn't … Continue reading Black out, again

I just stood there

I thought I was over the whole "crossing the street" thing, but nope, I can't do it. I was about to cross the street when I just froze on the sidewalk. I couldn't do it. I saw the cars coming, I thought I had enough time to get across, but I couldn't move. I was … Continue reading I just stood there

Driving lessons- Day 1

Good news, my first official driving lesson was a success! The driving instructor was not scared by my driving, he actually said I did pretty well and I had no accidents. There I was again, sitting in a car with a bumper sticker that said student driver but it was my first real attempt to … Continue reading Driving lessons- Day 1

Happy New Year!!! 2018!

In just a few hours we'll get what feels like a new start. I know there's a lot of us who need a new start but this doesn't necessarily come with a new year, a new calendar does. We have to go into the new year with a new attitude, I know I need to. … Continue reading Happy New Year!!! 2018!

Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma is coming for Puerto Rico with full force and I'm terrified, we all are, but most of alll we have to stay calm and be prepared. When I was young I remember some hurricanes and storms; these caused us to not have power for one or two days and classes were suspended. Those … Continue reading Hurricane Irma

I watched my puppy run at the speed of light

My life with my dogs has not been easy, dogs are a lot of work, but despite all the work I have loved every second of life with them, except 5 minutes that felt like hours on Wednesday night. We were just leaving our building to take the dogs for a walk, when I heard … Continue reading I watched my puppy run at the speed of light

I’m never letting go again

Today, we took our dogs for their daily walk, but we took a different route. Instead of starting next to the avenue, like we usually do,  we decided to walk next to the highway which is one street down from the avenue. As we were walking we realized that the sidewalk down there is not … Continue reading I’m never letting go again

Because of these, I did not get to celebrate this time, but it's ok. I'm still recovering from what happened yesterday. I woke up at 7:30 … Continue reading November 8, 2016

Clowns are not funny

So now there's these people dressing up as clowns, as in clowns weren't scary and creepy enough already. They should stay where they belong, the circus, that way if you don't like them or have a life long fear of the scary man with a white face giving children balloons, you don't have to see … Continue reading Clowns are not funny

Will I be able to drive with epilepsy?

Driving again is something that really worries me, I think I'm more scared now than when I was 16; then I was just excited. I wanted the freedom to go where I wanted when I wanted. I do want this again, but I think I will always be scared of having a seizure, especially if … Continue reading Will I be able to drive with epilepsy?

I am that scaredy-cat

I say I can’t do stuff because of my head injury and that’s partly true, but I can move past that like my former psychologist told me.I think I can but it's very, very scary and I don't want to be brave sometimes because I don't want to get hurt again, I want to protect … Continue reading I am that scaredy-cat
