INDEPENDENCE & WEBSITE CHANGES

PEOPLE ARE GENERALLY VERY CONSIDERATE. IF THEY C A NEED, THEY DO IT (LIKE IF I’M HEADED TOWARDS A DOOR, THEY OPEN IT). IT’S ALL NICE. EVEN STRANGERS ARE HELPFUL!

BUT I SEEM 2 BE IN A “TODDLER STAGE,”I SWEAR I HAVE HAD A SORT OF “REBIRTH”, & IN THE BEGINNING, WHEN I COULDN’T EVEN HOLD UP MU OWN HEAD, I WAS A HELPLESS “NEWBORN”), & OFTEN SAY, “I WANT 2 DO IT!” RECENTLY, MY DAUGHTER WAS TRYING 2 REACH SOMETHING, & THE WAY SHE WANTED 2 DO IT WASN’T SAFE, SO, SINCE MY CAREGIVER WAS THERE, I OFFERED HER HELP (NORMALLY, I LET KIDS STAND ON ME, IN ORDER 2 REACH, BUT THIS WAS SOMEWHERE I COULDN’T GO.)

SHE WAS VERY OFFENDED, & POINTED OUT HOW SHE FELT “GROWN UP” WHEN SHE DID STUFF HERSELF. VERY OBSERVANT! I, 2, FEEL THAT SAME SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT, & FEEL MORE LIKE A CAPABLE ADULT!

ON THANKSGIVING, A SISTER-IN-LAW OFFERED 2 FEED ME PIE. I WAS GRATEFUL 4 HER WILLINGNESS, BUT I WANTED 2 TRY. IF I FAILED, I KNEW I COULD ASK 4 HER HELP. MY 1ST TRY FAILED, BUT THE 2ND TRY WORKED, AFTER TAKING INTO ACCOUNT WHAT I DID WRONG!

THE BEST AT THANKSGIVING WAS THAT IF I WANTED A FINGER FOOD, I DIDN’T NEED 2 ASK 4 IT, OR BE FED IT—I SIMPLY RAISED MY CHAIR 2 COUNTER HEIGHT, REACHED & GRABBED IT, & FED MYSELF IT ALL THINGS I WAS TOLD I’D NEVER DO AGAIN! I FELT SUCH UTTER JOY & GRATITUDE! EVERYTIME I WAS SEEN, I GIGGLED 4 JOY! I WAS SO HAPPY!

CHANGE OF SUBJECT:
1. THE SCRAPBOOK PAGES R UPDATED
2. A NEW BOOK WAS ADDED 2 THE RECOMMENDATIONS LIST
3. A FAQ SECTION WAS CREATED BY MOVING THE “SEARCH” SECTION OUT AND ADDING A SEARCH BAR TO THE RIGHT SIDE.

THIS WAS ADDED BECUZ I SAW A NEED: WHEN I HAD MY STROKE, FAMILY HAD 2 SCOUR THE INTERNET 2 LEARN ABOUT MY CONDITION, & I STILL GET QUESTIONS EITHER ABOUT MY DISABILITY, OR ABOUT BEING DISABLED. SO, I’M ADDING A SECTION ON MY WEBSITE 4″ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ),” FEEL FREE 2 SEND ME A QUESTION (MY EMAIL IS ON THE “CONTACT ME” PAGE).

THE FAQ SECTION OPERATES BASED ON THE CATEGORY THAT I LABEL MY POST WITH. SO, WHEN U CLICK “FAQ” ONLY POSTS LABELED WITH THE CATEGORY “FAQ” WILL SHOW UP – NONE OF MY OTHER POSTS. SO REGULAR READERS WILL NOT MISS MY POSTS 2 THE FAQ SECTION. HOWEVER, I MAY ANSWER SOME THINGS BY COPYING & PASTING, SO SOME THINGS MAY BE FAMILIAR 2 U! I WILL TRY 2 ANSWER AT LEAST 1 QUESTION WEEKLY…
