For the first time, I stayed at our cabin overnight with the kids, but without Steve. I couldn’t help but feel a little uneasy about it because it gets so dark and quite at night. Then when you add the wind blowing across the lake, I couldn’t help but think about horror movies! Of course, I survived and am so proud of my new accomplishment.
Prior to my new diagnosis, it was challenging to be at the cabin with Steve (because it is not accessible), so the thought of coming here without him never entered my head. The cabin is on a steep hill which always made coming and going very difficult for me. Steve would carry me every step of the way! Now, am I not only able to get up and down that hill, but I am confident in doing so!
Here’s to crossing another adventure off my list!
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!
