4 years & 4 months

It has been 4 years and 4 months since the accident.  Mostly, I'm better. But sometimes, when it rains, or when I've been upright for more than 6 hours, I feel the pain. It can be a giant electrical bolt thru my brain without warning. Or, a giant, putting his fist in my head and… Continue reading 4 years & 4 months

The art of creating fear

We haven't had cable TV in about a year. It just was an excessive expense with the accident, and the chaos so we cut cable and occasionally rent a redbox or find a movie or documentary at the library. Which means, we don't watch the news. Yes, that's right folks. WE DO NOT WATCH THE… Continue reading The art of creating fear

Perspective and Gratitude, a year later…

One year ago today, I was in a car accident. For the last 365 days my husband has tirelessly supported us in so many ways. He has physically held me up during the never ending dizzy spells, held my hand during a hundred appointments, and paced waiting rooms during a dozen procedures. He managed all… Continue reading Perspective and Gratitude, a year later…

Methylation, Hope and New Doorways

You know the saying "when god closes one door...he opens another".  I'd be happy if we could just leave one closed for awhile and take a breather. I feel like I'm in back to back marathons.

Sooooooo, I'm nearly at the 11 month mark since the car accident. 11 months. I've spent the 36th year of my life on bedrest, and in hospitals, and in indescribable pain. Wow, what a journey. I've learned some valuable lessons, OK that's the understatement of the century. Each day is hard. It's hard to wake… Continue reading Be the light, find the magic

The Dreamer of Improbable Dreams

Ahhhh, I'm finally back at the keyboard. Long trip.  I try to not write until I can say something positive... like the childhood phrase "if you can't say something nice, don't..." it's like it imprinted! So.  I was having a hard time digging deep. Stopped somewhere along the road at a pitstop called Feeling Sorry… Continue reading The Dreamer of Improbable Dreams

Farewell Love Letter

It's been awhile... Today I drive to Houston (in the hatchback so I can lay flat) so tomorrow I can fly to Durham, NC.  Friday will be my much anticipated visit with Dr. Grey at Duke Medical Center. This is my affirmation for the trip. Traveling alone. Trusting in the helpfulness of strangers along the… Continue reading Farewell Love Letter
