DOING IT YOURSELF

A WHILE AGO, I GOT A HUGE KICK OUT OF THIS: MY CAREGIVER’S (CARA’S) MOM WAS HERE. OFTEN, HER MOM WOULD ATTEMPT 2 DO SOMETHING, & NEEDED CARA 2 EXPLAIN SOMETHING. RATHER THAN EXPLAIN, CARA WOULD JUST TELL HER MOM 2 LET HER DO IT HERSELF!

AH! WELCOME 2 MY WORLD! NOW, FINGERSPELL EVERY DETAILED DIRECTION U’D GIVE 2 SOME1!

IT IS SOMETIMES EASIER 2 JUST DO IT YOURSELF. EVEN I CAN DO IT MYSELF OCC.—RATHER THAN TRY EXPLAINING IT, THEN GIVING THE NECCASSARY ORDERS 2 HELP ME ACCOMPLISH SEVERAL SMALLER TASKS (THAT ADD 2GETHER, 2 MAKE I BIG TASK), IT CAN BE ALARMING WHAT I’M CAPABLE OF, WHEN I JUST PUT MY MIND 2 IT, & TRY. IT MAY NOT EVER WORK, OR IT MAY NEED SEVERAL TRIES (I’VE SAT AT A LIGHTSWITCH FOR 15 MIN., DETERMINED 2 REACH HIGH ENOUGH 2 TURN ON THE LIGHT), BUT IT’S WORTH TRYING!

PLUS, THERE IS AN ADOMITABLE (SP?) WILL THAT UNCOVERS ITSELF WHEN THERE IS A ROADBLOCK. I DISCOVER I’M CAPABLE OF DOING MANY MORE THINGS, BECAUSE I GET TIRED OF ASKING 4 SOMETHING, & OPT 2 JUST TRY ON MY OWN 2 DO IT…THIS HAS MADE ME CAPABLE OF PUTTING CDS INTO MY COMP., REACHING ITEMS FAR AWAY, GETTING & USING KLEENEX, HAVING THE ABILITY 2 REACH UP, & FEED MYSELF A TREAT, & MOST RECENTLY, BRUSH MY HAIR! (NOT STYLE IT, BUT BRUSH OUT MY DRIED, TANGLED HAIR, JUST BECAUSE I SAW A BRUSH LYING W/IN MY REACH, & THOUGHT, “I WONDER…”)

I LEARNED THIS WHEN HELPING FIA CLEAN HER ROOM W/MY LASER POINTER. IT WAS SLOW GOING, AS I’D POINT 2 EVERY SINGLE ITEM THAT NEEDED 2 BE PUT AWAY, BUT EVENTUALLY, HER ROOM WAS CLEAN!
