I seek to find humor – as well as personal growth – in life’s most tormenting moments. After two brain surgeries featuring a drill, a neurostimulator and my superhero neurosurgeon, I’ve certainly gained a bit of perspective. You’re getting a front row seat on my roller coaster ride so buckle yourself in and prepare for a gasp…and a chuckle!
These are my details but they’re not solely my stories. At their essence, they’re also the narratives of your neighbors, colleagues, friends, and family, maybe even you – anyone who struggles with a medical or health issue that makes them feel different or poses obstacles to an ordinary day. We’re just looking to fit in and make sense of our lives.
Hopefully, you’ll gain some understanding and move one step closer to someone who stood a little farther away from you. In the end, the universality of the human experience unites us way more than our differences keep us apart.
Remember this: Living with a movement disorder, it’s not about seeing the glass as half empty or half full, we’re just trying not to tip it over!
