Day 13

All of us are different but I that believe each one of us is born with equal power to inspire and change the world and to use the words of Stan Lee “With great power, comes great responsibility”. What are you doing with yours? 🙂     

It’s 4:46 PM on day 13 of my journey towards independence  after eating breakfast  we went  trip  the grocery store – where when my sister pointed out that everyone was staring at me I chose to say “They’re staring at me because I’m so pretty” – we both laughed at that – after which we returned home where I feed myself Rice & Curry and managed to wheel  myself to the sitting room now if only I could wheel myself straight once I’m in the sitting room I tried to get the help of an Occupational Therapist in my hometown but the woman I had a consultation with met with me once, gave my parents back their money and said “There’s nothing I can do to help her”  and it was in that moment that I was struck by the sudden realization that I was the best Occupational Therapist I could ever get because no one believed in me more than I believed in myself 🙂    

One year ago today my world was shattered when my  Virginia – my best friend/housekeeper –  died I woke up today and went about my day as usual and it was only when I looked at the bottom-right of my laptop screen that I remembered that today was the one year anniversary  of her death and the only reason that I didn’t start bawling right then and there was because her death taught me that there was no time like the present to use the power I’d been given and in honour of that I would like to dedicate the rest of my life to Virginia – whom I miss everyday more than words can say.

  1. Nisha, Virginia would have wanted you to be a happy girl. A strong girl. She would not want you to be sad. Think back to her and keep not her death but all the good memories you have of her. Hugs and kisses
