i can tell you EXACTLY what you can do

There were many doctors that gave me and my family grim expectations for the future.

What I would and wouldn’t be able to do.

What not to expect.

I wouldn’t dress myself this morning.

I wouldn’t help my kids get ready for a day of school.

I wouldn’t be making plans for the 10yo’s birthday sleepover.

I wouldn’t be planning an event for hundreds of people by phone and internet.

I wouldn’t be organizing a non-conference for the first time.

I wouldn’t be writing these words you’re reading right now.

I want to scream sometimes. My frustration. Irritation. Anger.

    If you really want something nothing should stop you from doing it. You should make a stand. If you really believe in it, then why not, right?

    Thanks for sharing!

    I know that when my father ended up in a wheel chair and paralyzed from the neck down that they told him he would never walk again… fast forward five years and he can walk with his canes. Thankfully he was determined to walk again – no one convinced him that he couldn’t do it.
