book sneak peak

My friend once asked me “What are your dreams?” Honestly, my dreams are probably stupid and mundane to you. I dream about pushing the elevator button myself, holding the TV remote in my hand and changing the channel by myself; no more having the freaking commands for them programmed into my Dynavox. I want to flip the bird to someone sometimes and not have somebody jokingly do it for me. Putting both of my arms around a friend or somebody and us equally squeezing each other chest to chest (Bet you never thought of a hug was so technically).  Standing up and dancing with my brother at each of our weddings. Okay, so neither of us is engaged, but it's going to happen someday! I dream of the day that me and my brother have kids to play together at Christmas like we did with our cousins when we were young. Truly talking to a friend on the phone is one of my biggest dreams. Slowly but surely, I'm accomplishing my dreams and it is amazing because I didn't know if it was sincerely possible. You dream of these things, and don't really know if they are going to happen. It’s just crazy that everything is really coming true! I feel like I'm healing from the inside out. It’s like when I get to learn more about myself and spread the word about my stroke I do better physically.

book peek -to make you laugh

This happened in the ER during the stroke  The main doctor kept doing sternum rubs on me, and I kept getting so annoyed. For those of you who don't know, sternum rubs are when they rub the bone in your chest with the palm of their hand. They do them to wake you up. Part of me knew what he was doing, and the other part of me didn't and thought he was trying to cop a feel. He kept doing the sternum rubs, and I kept smacking his hand and scoffing and saying to myself, “Dude! Enough, quit it!” Thinking back, he was probably as annoyed as I was for the misunderstanding.
