I Am In a Wheelchair

Everything Happens For A Reason? Everything happens for reason? Oh, wow. In the beginning, no other statement could infuriate me more. Not solely because of my situation, but because it brought to mind other, far more devastating... [more]

    Has It Really Been 4 Years? A week before my accident, I had a moment I'll never forget. At the time I was working at a new job I absolutely loved. I actually looked forward to getting up and going to work In the mornings… [more]

  • Trapped in a body that doesn't feel like mine

    Posted on: December 23rd, 2012 at 4:04AM

    It still feels so strange to be in this position. Most of the time I am a strong and optimistic woman. Most of the time I tackle these obstacles With strength and determination. Most of the time you will see a smile on my face. But once in a while I go to the dark place... a place full of such anguish and despair... Silent screaming in my head....and in the end I'm still in the same position I cannot change.

Now it is no longer just a cookie, but a foe, a foe in the now ensuing battle. I cautiously approach the front line and as I do, my foe looms larger and seemingly more delicious before me.

  • My partner, my Friend

    Posted on: January 2nd, 2013 at 7:31PM

    Where's my partner, my friend? As the days trickle by, so goes "us". I clutch, I cry, I try to ignore the distance Parting our passion- Or, maybe only mine... I try to push the signals Out of my thoughts... Instead watching you fly, With pride and anguish. I watch the tide Wane into the horizon I see your shadow, Riding the waves. Away. I think I've lost you, My partner, my friend. … [more]
