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

Whether it’s age, illness, temporary injury or, in my case, Continue Reading Here

Sunday Funday

I’m so grateful for yesterday! The sun was shinning, the temperatures were comfortable in the low 70’s, with a cool breeze. The morning started out like most Sunday mornings Continue Reading Here

INTERNET = INDEPENDENCE OR NOT

Can life be more boring?  I didn’t think I could be more bored than I have been over the last years since #paralysis became my new normal but I was wrong.

Feeling Sad and Sadly Embarrassed 😢

Yes I’m feeling sad. My childhood BFF lost her brother to cancer. 😢  Their house was like my second home when we were younger. My childhood BFF had 7 siblings so with 8 children and always a few friends floating around, well it was a party even when it wasn’t a party.

This will be the first wake I’ve had to attend since that fateful day in June 2016 left me #paralyzed and in this da___ #wheelchair, and, well, I’m embarrassed to have to be seen in this wheelchair, I’m embarrassed to admit it but, yes, I’m vain. Continue Reading Here
