Do I Dare. . .

My mind is racing in a million different directions…..where do I start. As you know by now, I’m a #little_person or #person_of_short_stature (a.k.a. #dwarf). What you need to understand is that back in 1960/1961 very little was known about #dwarfism and as a result I have never had any “specialized” care or “specialized” doctors, etc. Continue Reading Here

The Magic of a Campfire

Ahh, the magic and wonder of a campfire. This past weekend we decided to do a fire 🔥 (yes, it was 90ish degrees but we didn’t care). As we sat relaxing by the water, with our drink in hand 🍷 and music playing, Continue Reading Here

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

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

I’m Sorry… My LOVE Isn’t Enough…

Aging parents is tough on many I know, but I’m feeling so very sad as there is really nothing I can do to help my parents, my love ❤️ just isn’t enough. 😔

We’ve all seen and/or heard the stories of the adult children caring for their aging parents, but Continue Reading Here
