On a mission....

On a mission to find myself again; I have time. :)

Hmmm… Do I want to be left or right handed? I’m starting over from scratch anyway. I guess the right can be the primary and I can at least keep the left usable.

I was able to type 115+ wpm, but writing escaped me after my arm came out of paralysis.

I’ll give this a good try on my tablet. I want to clear some certs, but I need to be able to write my memorized notes on the blank sheet of paper given to us when entering the room.

I wonder if I’ll be able to start drawing again. We’ll see, I’m a stubborn little girl. ^._^

I have to say, I’d be MAD if someone denied my paralysis just because I got better and had hope. I’m not sorry I left general medicine to get my arm moving out of the sling when all the hospitals wanted was to keep pumping me with steroids or give up and take the handicap check.

After 3 months of acupuncture I got my arm moving and back in the industry again. I also turned a non-believer/witness who you’d think wouldn’t question me anymore.

I will get on with my physical therapy & acupuncture to get on with my life - dancing, working, swimming, and playing tennis again.

Oh no, a nurse just told me to bring it. I’ve been this big before and worked myself to a perfect beauty queen size without a gym membership. Gonna be a bit tougher now being I can’t stand or even kick yet, but I’ll take her challenge. She’s all talk anywho.

I’m gonna keep pushing my semi-paralyzed butt to get in gear and DO THIS!!!


This exercise will target your upper and lower abdominals by crunching your upper body and keeping the lower body isometric. Start by lying flat in bed and raise your legs so your body forms a 90-degree angle. Lift your arms above your chest and contract the abs to lift the upper body. Crunch upward until the fingertips touch your toes before slowly lowering yourself to the starting position. Repeat for as many repetitions as you want.

I’ve been smacked with a renewed sense of determination. Yay! Someone just asked about a gap in my résumé in late ‘02. Nevermind that it was the icky dot.com crash… my arm was paralyzed that year. It stunk, paralyzed w/o health insurance. It’s all good, I got better. After 3 months of acupuncture and LOTS of prayer, I was able to stop using a sling. I won’t be in this chair forever, I’ll just need to work real hard and believe. Why didn’t I do that sooner? Well, getting cancer twice, four years apart and all the accompanying surgeries & treatments kinda got in the way - kinda. The Lord is good, he won’t let me down; I’ll get better. ^._^

Don’t tell me I’m freaking out! You try losing all feeling of pain for over half a decade then, wake up one day feeling where all your injuries were - scars, burns, and broken bones. I’ll be busy thanking God for protecting me from all the hurt in the most unconventional way, temporary numbness.
