It wasn’t until after 10 years of traveling post-injury that I got the bright idea that I might be able to do it by myself someday. It was kinda like putting the pieces of the puzzle together. I had loaded my bags in my truck, driven to the airport and parked in one of their lots (We’d also used one of those Park-N-Ride places that accommodated me even though they didn’t have an accessible shuttle. As it turns out very few of them do.), I’d used the curbside check in dozens o
I went to the Zoo a couple weeks ago with the family. We got all the way down there with my scooter and then realized nobody brought my keys. My brother in law swears he handed them to me after he got the scooter out of the shed but I have absolutely no recollection of this. I’m blaming this one on the hydrocephalus. LOL. My memory sucks anymore. Anyway, since that happened we had to rent one of the zoo’s scooters for $30. They have standard wheelchairs for $10. I’ve been to
Sorry for my long absence everyone!! I have decided to write you tonight because Somebody I admired greatly died today. He killed him self.

Being a person with a disability definitely makes it harder to find people to date and hopefully start a relationship with- but it's not impossible. I didn't date a lot.

At 37 I told my best friend, "I'm going to s
You didn't have to.
You made a commitment all those years ago, Long before things were set in stone. You didn't have to.
You took on special needs Like few have ever seen. You didn't have to. Appointments, surgeries, sicknesses, and more, You acted as if you had done it all before. You didn't have to. You carried me in your arms Everywhere we went, And let me sit in your lap for hours on end. You didn't have to.
You rocked me in the chair While I laid on your chest, Beca
