Once again, I feel like I am living a miracle. As you are all aware, there was a time in my life that I was dependent on others and I needed to use a mobility scooter to get from point A to point B.
This evening I attended Winona's 6th grade curriculum night alone. Yes, alone. Steve had to work and I was happy that I could drive myself to the school and walk class to class in the sea of parents without worrying whether I would fall or not.
Tonight I felt strong, free and confidant and am so grateful for all my new abilities. I love that I can go to bed tonight feeling the way I do. Life is more than I ever expected it to be.
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!
