HAWMC - Way Ahead of Ya

Ello Everybody!

Today's HAWMC is super freaking easy, so I'll just get it out of the way.

Sharing Resources - Create a "care page" - a list of your best resources that someone who is newly diagnosed could go to when starting to advocate for themselves or a loved one. Remember to include sites that lead to successful self advocacy!

What a coincidence... I built a resource page into the blog. Just click on "Crippie's Resources" to check it out. See, that was super freaking easy.

Moving on, my day was very exhausting... but in a good way. Ya see I've been helping out with local drama clubs for about 8 years. Mainly painting scenery, more specifically... rocks. I am really good at painting rocks. But I had to stop painting because Fanny was s'darn painful. I definitely missed my rocks, so when someone asked if I could paint  rocks for a local production of "Peter Pan" I gleefully accepted. So I spent the day painting rocks. Lots of rocks. Crap ton of rocks. I'm tired, I'm sore, I'm in a fair amount of pain, BUT I am so freaking happy to be back in the saddle. Honestly once Fanny started growing I fully expected to never be able to paint my rocks again, thus I'm pretty stoked to be in a position where I can paint. It definitely hurts a whoooolllllleeeee lot more than it used to, but I'm not going to let that stop me.

This is one of those hobbies that I enjoy while I can because I am fully aware that I won't be able to do this forever. I probably have a few more years left in me before everything becomes too painful. But until that day arises... I AM QUEEN OF THE ROCKS!!! (I'll try and get a picture of my rocks for y'all tomorrow)

  1. Way go to Girl!!! I've looked at your resource page before, and it's a good one. I know you hate it when I praise you, but i'm; going to embarrass you again by saying I admire you so much for the way you are handling your condition. For a young girl (and you are young compared to this old lady) you have so much going for you. You are mentally very sharp, have a good head on your shoulders (meaning you think things thru and make good decisions), you just are a "super" person. I'm sure your family is very proud of you. I'm so glad you are once again able to do something you really enjoy doing. I've had to give up on a few things I've enjoyed too (golfing) and it's not fun. But we do what we have to do and have great memories! Keep going girl!! You Rock!
