When you’re part of a family what happens to you affects everybody else – that’s what I learned today.
It’s 11: 59 PM on day 124 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself sweet potatoes and yoghurt for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – someone made a $10 donation– I was SO surprised because at time I wasn’t even focused on getting donations LOL 🙂 – feed myself chicken biriyani for lunch, go visiting a couple of people – it was not as boring as I initially thought it would be 🙂 – and feed myself grilled chicken and French fries for dinner.
Earlier this week my father told us that we would be visiting people this weekend and today I woke up to find that my sister didn’t want to go visiting at all and I knew something was wrong so my mother and I teamed up to find out why she didn’t want to go and after hours of poking and prodding she finally came out with the truth and said there are stairs there – referring to the house we wanted to visit – and in that moment I realized that you don’t have to have a disability to be disabled. Do you ever step back and think about how your struggles affect those you love? 🙂
