Dealing With #COVID-19 — What’s Next. . .???

What’s next has been weighing heavy on our minds the last few weeks. My honey has been successfully working from home, as a lot of people have, since mid March. Then his company informed everyone that after Labor Day they wanted to bring people back to work two days a week and continue remote three days.

My honey works in NYC, which is still struggling in certain areas/hot spots of #COVID. With me being #paralyzed and restricted to this #wheelchair 🦼, with virtually no #mobility, I myself am at higher risk of COVID. In addition, Continue Reading Here

How To Be Helpful & Involved . . . When You Physically Can’t

I’m going to start by saying “I know I’m not the only person in this situation.” I’m sure everyone & anyone that has physical limitations at some point can relate to not being able to be helpful and/or be physically involved in something. Whether it’s age, illness, temporary injury or, in my case, Continue Reading Here

Change ~ Changed ~ Changing

Have you noticed a few less blog posts from me lately? Me too, but I can’t put my finger on why. Maybe there’s just too much going on all around, maybe I’m just not able to focus, maybe I’m just at a loss. Then today, while watching our NY Governor give his daily briefing today the words #change, #changed and #changing struck me and I began thinking about those words. Continue Reading Here

I Hope You Dance. . .

Mother’s Day. . .a special day to show our Mother’s extra thanks, extra appreciation and most importantly extra 💖.

Not being a mother myself, I can only guess what my mother must have thought that Thursday morning back in 1961. I’ve since been told that on that Thursday morning, the doctors said “she has skin like ivory and jet black hair like her Mommy,” BUT, Continue Reading Here

WORDS AND MEANINGS

#NEW NORMAL

We are now 2 months or so with the majority of people attempting to adjust to a “new normal” life amidst #COVID19. While I understand that living a “new normal” lifestyle isn’t easy, doesn’t come naturally and surely isn’t fun, I’ve come to understand and realize that life goes on, whether we like it or not, even when this “new normal” is forced upon us. For me, my “new normal” of #living_this_paralyzed_life was forced on me at the hands of surgery gone wrong that fateful day in June 2016, nearly 4 years ago. Continue Reading Here

Uncertain Times

The #COVID19 #virus 🦠 is now affecting all our lives in ways we never would have imagined just 4 months ago. Ironically, #paralysis is now affecting my life in ways I would never have imagined just 4 years ago. Continue Reading Here

Social Distancing Is The New Normal. . . Welcome to My World

Odd really, as I sit here in this #wheelchair, as I have done for the past !,370+ days (since June 21 2016), I have once again become keenly aware of my own unplanned #social_distancing forced upon me back in 2016,

Without a doubt the mandated lock downs and mandatory social distancing orders put in place in an effort to flatten the curve of this horrible #COVID_19 virus are necessary and I’m sure for many very stressful. Continue Reading Here

When My Health Affects His

STRESS, 😬it’s there, we all have it, can’t stop it, can’t change it, but when my honey’s health is now affected because of me, well, tell me, how am I supposed to deal with that?

He loves me I know, he worries about me it’s true, he stresses over us, what can I do? Continue Reading Here

Adjusting to Celebrating. . .

This past weekend we celebrated both my mother’s 80th birthday and St. Patrick’s Day…let me say I “celebrated” on the outside and cried on the inside. Continue Reading Here

Snow = A Love to Hate Life Story

Snow, it’s a fact of life if you live in a northern state in the USA, snow, it’s one of the four seasons, snow, it went from fun, exciting to fear and dreading another snow event. Continue Reading Here
