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 think I’m sleeping too much

Sleeping has always been my favorite pass time but I thought this all changed after the accident, having to wake up at 8:00 a.m. every day to take my epilepsy medicine. I was sure this was one of the many things the accident had taken away from me, especially since I am forced to wake … Continue reading I think I’m sleeping too much

Side effects

I try to stay active everyday, working out in the morning before doing anything else during the week. This just helps wake me up, at least it does some days. Other days, like today, I wake up tired; I sleep nine hours and I wake up tired. Then I wash my face, have breakfast, workout, … Continue reading Side effects

Wake up and keep fighting

IToday was one of those days when I was tired for no reason at all, not just tired, but sleepy too. I know I look like I'm sad or there's something wrong with me, but I just feel tired. There is no reason for this because I slept enough and I didn't do anything out … Continue reading Wake up and keep fighting

This morning I woke up feeling like I had a hangover 

Yesterday was a long day for me, and now I'm paying for that. I started the day at the gym at 8 am, that was the gym without air conditioner in the summer, near desert heat we're living with in Puerto Rico right now. (The power was out.) After the gym I came home, changed … Continue reading This morning I woke up feeling like I had a hangover 

Sandy and Indy meet “el patio”

I hope everyone had a good Christmas Day! Today, it felt really special to see my puppies enjoying their first Christmas playing with presents my brother got them, but it's even greater seeing them fighting over the same toy, when they got three toys, one squishy for each and a set of chewable Christmas lights … Continue reading Sandy and Indy meet “el patio”

The puppies and the internship

I just noticed I haven't had time to write since Thursday and it's Sunday. I have been really tired, having two puppies in my life is exhausting; I love them but it takes a lot of time, especially when you're trying to train them. It takes a lot of time, from cleaning the Pipi Pads … Continue reading The puppies and the internship

Que? What? The brain injury is not an excuse

First of all, the storm never came. Second, today I read a very interesting article written by another brain injury survivor. In the article she talks about how she was caught off guard when a friend told her to "Quit using your brain injury as an excuse".  Her friend told her this after she asked … Continue reading Que? What? The brain injury is not an excuse

15 months seizure free!

I had just arrived at work this morning and I was reading an article about Uber in Puerto Rico; is it good, not good? Now suddenly the taxi drivers are good? I was hoping to get to the part where it made sense but then I felt dizzy. My head was spinning and that scared … Continue reading 15 months seizure free!

Getting better requires sleep

   I don't remember saying this, but if I wrote it, it must be true.  This photo should be added to my blog post from July 21, 2015 "Deep down inside, I am still not a morning person".  It clearly expresses my anger after being in this accident.  I still had unresolved issues with this … Continue reading Getting better requires sleep

I was walking all day, now get ready for lazy Sunday

I just spent the whole day walking.  I was wearing very comfortable shoes, and I didn't feel tired; until I stopped walking.  That's when it hit me.  I was exhausted, I felt it as soon as I sat down in a very comfortable chair in my grandpa and grandma's house.  There was a lot of … Continue reading I was walking all day, now get ready for lazy Sunday
