You ain’t no copper penny…

Recently, I’ve been going through a lot a stress.  Health, family, pets, household issues, etc….if I wasn’t for bad luck, I’d seriously have none.  On top of it all, I’ve gained a ton of weight from both inactivity due to my broken foot and stress eating.  Then I ended up getting sick.  The kind of […]

Abled People Are From Mars, Disabled People Are From Venus….

I’ve been documenting my journey with my broken foot. It’s been frustrating, painful, and difficult to say the least. Non-weight bearing is hard when you don’t have autoimmune arthritis, but when you do, it’s nearly overwhelming. When I found out my foot hadn’t healed, I decided to stay at my parents’ house over the Christmas […]

Four more weeks…

I had my follow up for my broken foot (AKA 5th metatarsal fracture) today.  I’ve been trying my best to not bear weight on my foot since 11/1/2018.  The past 46 days have been difficult.  I’ve tried my best to not walk.  I admit, it’s so hard in my stair-filled house, so there are times when […]

My Tail bone’s connected to my foot bone??

Today, I had jury duty.  It went a little something like this: 1. Ask to park in the handicapped parking area, but am sent to the farthest spot away from the elevators because the juror parking lot is closed and they don’t have a handicapped spot in that section. 2. Am told that if I […]

Times like these….

I love music.  I love concerts.  The more my disability progresses, the harder it is for me to attend concerts.  See I’m one of those people in the middle.  I definitely struggle with mobility, but I’m not truly in need of a wheelchair.  I’m a “need-a-cane-some-of-the-time” kind of person.  Concerts tend to be in big […]
