Take time to reflect on the things we can be thankful for, including our support systems and changemakers who push forward.
I’ve gotten used to being looked at when I roll into a room in my wheelchair. The rise of video meetings has changed the way I enter a room.
Thinking if I wanted plants, it would be just one more thing I would need to ask a caregiver to assist me with. Surely, gardening was not for quadriplegics.
My eyes are closed, and I scan my body from head to toe. What do I feel right in this moment?
It sometimes takes a village of humans and gadgets combined to ensure different levels of independence in our homes and lives.
As a child, I looked ahead to the year 2020 and thought it was so far away.
When a good personal care attendant leaves me, I’m heartbroken.
The fact is I haven’t had the luxury of making a quick departure from my bed in two decades.
I traverse the world in a large, clunky, heavy power chair. It’s big, and together we take up a lot of space.
