Dentist, Documentary and Movie

It’s now Wednesday and my teeth still haven’t been cleaned. This time the dental office canceled. I’m ready to get this over with. Unless something else comes up my teeth will be all polished up tomorrow. I love that feeling. This is the first time I’ll be rolled up to the dental chair and transfer from a…

A Place For Everything

It’s Monday, a new day, a new week. A few appointments and a couple of rough days kept me from blogging the past several days. I thought I would be going to the dentist last Tuesday but that didn’t work out. They had a cancellation and called. Tony asked me if I was up to it, I said…

Unless You Die, You Will Age

Today I’m just rambling on so I can move on. We all know time flies when you’re having fun at any point in life. As we grow older and wiser we realize the passage of time just sweeps you right along, and how the next Christmas will be here seemingly before you’ve dropped your new year’s resolutions, while…

Vermont Enacted Death With Dignity Law

Some reading this will be very pleased and some horrified. I am very pleased about it. Vermont enacted Death With Dignity law, otherwise named, Physician assisted death. This took a decade of hard work and dedication to make this happen and I thank everyone who helped with this cause. Governor Peter Shumlin signed the bill into law May 20, 2013. The bill grants Doctors civil and criminal immunity…

Everybody Needs a Good Cough

I’ve been really busy lately with everyday life. I’ve had some cramping days, but for the most part I’ve been busy with non-ALS things. I do have an appointment at Emory next Friday. Other than that, as long as ALS stays calm I’ll just have the normal struggles of leaving for house showings and taking…

My Blog My Documentary and More

This week has gone by fast. I’m thankful because it has not been a nice one. I had some website issues that have been finally taken care of. On top of that I’ve had lots of muscle cramping going on and my left knee and ankle hurt from scooting myself around in my transfer chair with that leg. I need to…

The Restroom

I can’t wait to be able to go places in my power wheelchair. I do have one big fear: The Restroom. Right now if I find a place with a restroom that has a large enough stall to drive my chair in I’ll be fine alone. I have enough left arm and left leg strength to transfer by…

ALS, ADD, I Attract Acronyms

While I’m putting so much out there about myself, I thought I would share something else that has been in my way. I have ADD. I attract acronyms apparently. Although ADD will never kill me, like ALS will, it sure did hold me back from achieving many things. I never repeated a grade but school was always hard…
