I can cross another adventure off my bucket list. I painted!!!
My home has been in desperate need of a pain job. With Steve working long hours, I felt that this was a task that I would need to do. My good friend, Kate, volunteered her time and expertise to help me paint my living room and entryway.
I was in awe, that I was able to stand on a step stool and roll the color on the wall until midnight! As you are aware, my mobility used to send me to bed in the early evenings. Plus, my arms would have never allowed me to complete the up and down motion of a paint roller.
My walls look so fresh and clean now. What a gift it is to know that this is something I can do on my own. With Kate's help, I feel so empowered. Prior to my diagnosis, I would have never been able to complete this task. And until last night I didn't have the confidence to try something that looked so intimidating. ,
Thanks Kate for being a great friend and helping me into the wee hours of the night!
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!
