What I’ve come to learn is that is small victories. Life is better when you compete against yourself, instead of others.
I want you to take something positive from this blog. Even if you decide things I do are not right, you can use me as a example of what not to do in your life. I just want you to know that we are all struggling with something, and when I find a little little trick that makes life easier I want to pass it along. I will like to show you when I get down some , because we all go do it. I want you to know how grateful I am that you all have decided to come along on this journey with me. I did not get any comments, but I got a lot of likes for my feedback request, so I am going to take that as a sign keep going.
Well I have done something I never thought I would do, I bought me an iPhone. I got to say I like that you could take a car without having to unlock your phone. I love that you can store your passwords. The fingerprint scanner is difficult at times, but it’s nice when I can get it to work.
Gone are the days of expensive environmental control units. Thanks to Amazon Echo, I can now control my lamp with the sound of my voice. You can buy smart plugs that turn your dumb appliances into smart appliances that can communicate with Alexa. What I mean is you can take a standard Appliance and buy a smart plug and now your Appliance can now communicate with Alexa. The instructions for a little complicated, but it was easier once I started to fiddle around with the app myself. YouTube was valuable for setting up Alexa. I plan to get more smart plugs so I can control my appliances via Alexa. Now I can turn on lights in my apartment without asking for help. My next piece will be automatic curtains. The small things insignificant to an able-bodied person, but you’re person with a disability the small things are major victories.
I had a wonderful time at the concert this past weekend. Gilbert was awesome. I would so do it again.
I am going to see Gilbert Brantley, who is a country singer for those who don’t know. I’m very excited about this concert. I feel I’m getting out into the community is very important when you have a disability.
I feel amazing, tonight was the first time in a long time that I was able to hold my fondue Fork in my hand. I got so emotional I almost cried.
on a day like today I wish I Still drink whiskey in the morning, because my leg is killing me. These days it seems like doctors I’m more interested in giving painkillers to addicts, then people who really need them.
