Why Blog?

Why blog? For me, the simple answer is blogging is my therapy. Blogging gives me something to do. #Blogging helps me express my thoughts and feelings without being judged; without the risk of upsetting anyone or bringing someone down because of how I’m feeling. I can let loose in cyber space and be free.

As a #little_person and unable to reach most everything and being confined to this #wheelchair 👩‍🦽, leaves me alone with my thoughts 💭 more often than not.

Sometimes my thoughts are so random, so angry, so sad, so mad, so discouraged that blogging can sometimes help me sort it out or at the very least express it, get it out of my head. Blogging can sometimes serve as a form of self medication.

After having doctors 👩‍⚕️, lawyers 👩‍⚖️, various manufacturers and other little people all tell me there are no other little people in my circumstances (paralyzed) and therefore there is little to no equipment or ideas on how to continue to live an independent life.

While I never felt #disabled or #handicapped prior to that fateful day in June 2016 when surgery gone wrong left me #paralyzed, I’ve since found myself searching for ideas and/or suggestions on how to do things, how to navigate life from other little people that may also be in a wheelchair. To my surprise, I wasn’t able to find many people in my situation. With that I started blogging about my thoughts, feelings, needs, etc., in the hopes that maybe someday someone will find this blog and maybe be able to relate to my life as it is now and not feel as alone as I so often do now.

As always, I wish you days filled with WONDER – take a minute to WONDER what it is that made you smile today! 😊
