One step at a time 

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 

We are unstoppable 

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 

Two years and a half

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

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

Smile!

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!

Five years is enough

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

21 months!!!

Out of everything that happened in 2016,  the best thing was that I didn't have any seizures in 2016. Now I have been seizure free for so long I forgot that yesterday marked my 21st month seizure free!!!  That makes one year and nine months seizure free, which means I only have 3 months left … Continue reading 21 months!!!

Almost done

I'm almost done with my first project, which has taken como close to 24 hours, of course not all on one day. In this first project I have learned how to make my own map on Google Maps, how to use Streetview and how to watermark photos. This is a lot of work, but I'm … Continue reading Almost done
