Today's HAWMC is super freaking easy, so I'll just get it out of the way.
Sharing Resources - Create a "care page" - a list of your best resources that someone who is newly diagnosed could go to when starting to advocate for themselves or a loved one. Remember to include sites that lead to successful self advocacy!
What a coincidence... I built a resource page into the blog. Just click on "Crippie's Resources" to check it out. See, that was super freaking easy.
Moving on, my day was very exhausting... but in a good way. Ya see I've been helping out with local drama clubs for about 8 years. Mainly painting scenery, more specifically... rocks. I am really good at painting rocks. But I had to stop painting because Fanny was s'darn painful. I definitely missed my rocks, so when someone asked if I could paint rocks for a local production of "Peter Pan" I gleefully accepted. So I spent the day painting rocks. Lots of rocks. Crap ton of rocks. I'm tired, I'm sore, I'm in a fair amount of pain, BUT I am so freaking happy to be back in the saddle. Honestly once Fanny started growing I fully expected to never be able to paint my rocks again, thus I'm pretty stoked to be in a position where I can paint. It definitely hurts a whoooolllllleeeee lot more than it used to, but I'm not going to let that stop me.
This is one of those hobbies that I enjoy while I can because I am fully aware that I won't be able to do this forever. I probably have a few more years left in me before everything becomes too painful. But until that day arises... I AM QUEEN OF THE ROCKS!!! (I'll try and get a picture of my rocks for y'all tomorrow)
