One night as I was laying awake with some pain & then just also feeling tired of all this, I decided to distract myself with a podcast.
Most people know I’m a huge fan of Tim Lawrence’s blog, “The Adversity Within”. I’ve even linked back to a few of his blog entries that I’ve found helpful when I’m going through a challenging time or feeling off.
I’ve shared some of Megan Devine’s work before here in my blog in the past & I absolutely love her approach to dealing with pain & grief in life.
I follow her on Twitter & whenever I’m having a rough time, I scroll through her timeline & can always find something that helps me deal with those tough moments.
I want to thank Emily Webb from HelpHopeLive for the lead on this important news article.
It points out some important issues that need to be addressed, especially early on after transplant surgery.
So in a previous blog post, I mentioned how I asked my transplant team if I could get a tattoo.
I understood why they told me no but I was disappointed. Yet as usual, I find my own creative ways around disappointments.
Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 39.
So I am pushing up the hill & at the top, but not over it…
I have grappling hooks at the ready because I plan on camping out here awhile.
It’s interesting that I happened to stumble upon this late last night…
Charles Bukowski (my favorite poet) penned The Crunch in 1977. This was year I was born.
I want to thank my friend, twitter buddy, & disability advocate Gregg Beratan for tweeting me this article. I also came across it in my google alert.
It’s an important subject to discuss.
