Today has been a great reminder that I am not normal. I have fallen twice today and find that frustrating. Yet, at the same time, I am so grateful that falling is no longer a daily occurrence for me. Years ago, when I would tumble, I would have to crawl to the couch and pull myself back up OR call for help.
Yes, my ankle hurts and my knee is slightly skinned, but I could get myself up off the floor without any worries. I would call this a good day and I am so grateful!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
