I’ve heard it, pretty much my whole life (pre-crash included), that actions speak louder than words, but since the crash, and being visibly disabled, it’s crystal clear. People, no matter who, pretty much will always say that they’ll help someone who needs it, but being asked to is easy. The true heroes are the people […]

Guess who was invited to be at the induction ceremony? ME! Yes, that’s right, me.
Liquid Gym isn’t like what’s immediately thought of when you hear “physiotherapy.” What’s thought of are things like guided exercises, and ways to use your body to help heal what happened to you. If you’re like me, you’d have never thought of being in the water as being beneficial in that respect, let alone excellent. […]
This entry doesn’t immediately seem to fit into this blog, because what it’s about doesn’t immediately fit with what this story is about. But, it is. Why? Because what I’m about is the minimizing the differences between myself, and someone who hasn’t suffered an injury that’s rendered them unable to drive. Put it this way, […]
A while ago, like 4 or 5 years, I simply couldn’t have a conversation at a dinner party with someone, because of the ambient noise, other people talking, and everything else that would distract me made it impossible. It was impossible because I couldn’t focus on what they were saying, such that while I heard […]
I was chatting with my son, Connor, and learned something pretty awesome. He joined the Air Force, but told me about his interview, and what he shared blew me away. He said that, in his interview, he was asked about his biggest challenge. He’s faced several, but what he said that he’d replied with stopped […]
Yes, the rain is challenging, but when you’re driving, you not only have windows, but a roof. But hey, in October to something like April, my air conditioning is better than awesome! And my heater, boy oh boy, is it ever awesome how it works in the May to September time frame. I’ve had bad-stretches, […]
I heard from someone that they like my blog, but because she most-often reads blogs when driving, she can’t read mine when she’d like to. She made a suggestion, to have it be able to be read (aloud), and gave me a link to somewhere that would do it! I did it! Now it’s even […]
For me, driving wasn’t a choice, because of my eyes, but for others, it could be a choice. I don’t think about it, anymore. It bugged me, a lot, for a few years. I’d put a lot of “personal value” on it, mainly because of my loss of personal-independence. I’d lost a lot, I always […]
Brain injuries only exist in only two ways: Penetrating, or closed. Basically, and it’s self-explanatory, either something goes through your skin and skull, or your brain is shaken, and hits your skull. While penetrating is exciting-sounding, such as getting shot, having a harpoon go in, or something equally exotic, they’re few and far between. The […]
