My daughter and I had a fun time in Toronto on Oct 28. We went to see Peter Hook and the Light ! It was great!
My new American friend “LeeAnne” has written a heart-felt, sincere, articulate, personal post on the topic of Anxiety.
I've decided I'm done being quiet and polite about a number of things. I'm tired of depending on people who are clueless of the reality and gravity of my situation and others like me, to advocate for me. How can they? I often speak up and speak out on closed forums and offer support, advice, and information, when I have it to give. And I am often thanked and told that this is my missed calling. Or teaching. Maybe. I don't know. But I have had life and career experiences that have taught me things that I know can help others.
I do enjoy helping when I can, and I've always been a fight for the underdog kind of gal. I was always a strong patient advocate as a nurse. I was mostly able to do so in a diplomatic manner and have an excellent rapport with many providers and fellow nurses. Many former patients or family members have asked to be friends since I've become disabled. But I also wasn't afraid to pitch a feet stomping hissy-fit or go over someone's head or several heads for a patient's best interest when necessary. I may be on a *hit list or two as a result, and well, that is what it is.
On August 18, my cousin, my daughter and myself went to see P!nk in Toronto.
It was a GREAT concert.
This was originally scheduled for May but was postponed because of a throat infection. It was well worth the wait.
It was awesome.
Thank you P!nk for a wonderful show!!

My dad died less than a week before I turned 13.
40 years ago.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. I miss him. He was truly a nice person. I try to make him proud every day. Some days that is harder than others.
