Today at the gym, my friend Gerry worked out with me. He trained me on my balance. Great workout, I was on the treadmill walking, but with no hands holding the grips on the treadmill. Gerry was beside me, to catch me if I fell. I was able to walk, remember I fell down the treadmmill when I first started the gym? I was scared walking the treadmill, but I was able to let my hand go from the ndle. I did hold on when I need too. Today made me realized that I started walking in 5 years, crazy. I am walking so much!
Before my family lived in the warehouse we live in now, when I visited I would take Snapchat videos of the warehouse being my home. I had room tours. I was going through my saved videos and found my room tours. I was walking around the warehouse telling my parents the warehouse is ours. Now it is.
I felt sad, down, my motivation was low then I looked over my blog. I been through so much. On July 19, 2003 I had an incident. A vessel burst in my head and I was in coma for 3 months. I woke up laying on a bed thinking what I last remembered was my incident thinking it was a nightmare, it wasn’t. I couldn’t talk or move, I was stiff. The day I woke up, I found out July 19 actually happened. I asked myself,”Why did god choose me to be handicap, I have to now go through what I will go through?” Before July 19, I was an active child, had lots of friends, talented, and I had a future planned out for me. I wanted to be a nurse then my incident happened and it felt like my future was not happening. My teenage years was gone, I was getting around on a wheelchair, I looked for creams, remedies to get stronger, walk again. High school was so rough, the assignments was no problem, but the teachers and students were. I was called ugly, retard, fat, people brought me down. I never liked drama so I never said anything. I graduated class of 2010. My brother signed me up at Planet Fitness and now I inspire and motivate so much people. The gym changed my life. I stroll my wheelchair around with weights. I do One 45lbs to five 45lbs. I change it up to train my balance. I also workout too. If I stopped pushing my wheelchair around, the gym wouldn’t be the same. Life is like a bicycle, to keep your balance is to keep moving. God gave me another chance on life to do what I am doing now and that is being an inspiration to many, changing how people see life. God is amazing, god knows what he/she is doing. Be patient. When I stand before god on the end of my life. I hope I won’t have any talent in me because I used it all.
My elder brother Simon left to Cambodia to visit his pregnant wife, his wife gave birth to my niece Lily. My parents went to Cambodia 2 weeks after Simon. I stayed with Lee, Priscilla his wife, 2 sons and Ganykar at their home. I miss home so when my sister’s boyfriend got home from his trip, we stay at home, warehouse. I love the warehouse being so much room. Bubble tea house is so different with Simon gone and my parents. I am a gym person and no gym, I get upset, grumpy. I walked from Bubble tea house to Planet Fitness. It is near eachother, it is convenient. Simon does get underneath my skin, but I miss him. I miss my parents too, miss my mom’s voice, smile, funny ideas and my dad’s laugh talking on the phone to someone, his bad driving, their companies. I hope they all have a great time. They know the gym is so important to me, they see me often to know I am capable of walking on my own. My parents puts me at Bubble tea and I walk around Bubble tea street. I don’t go far, I don’t trust myself on walking far. I want my parents to know I did go to the gym today, they like it when I go to the gym because I always come home with stories.
David Archuletta is my Idol since his he tried out for American Idol. He has vocal paralysis, but still tried out. He was singing and a little girl started crying. I asked myself,”Why is she crying?” At the gym, outside of the gym I meet somebody and we talk, I tell them everything I went through. They get teary eyes and ask to hug me. Now I know why the little girl cried.
Today my aunt, uncle, Tricia and Melissa is here from Texas for a week. Last time I saw Melissa, Tricia and their parents was at Spring Texas when I lived there. Melissa was a toddler when I last seen her and now she is 15. So I had my incident 14 years ago, time flies. Here is a picture of Melissa and my sister’s dog.
I had my incident on her first Birthday, a vessel burst in my head.
I was alone in my room and decided to take pictures with my first bralette ever. I am learning to embrace my body for it’s hard work. I wore my sunglasses and took a picture, I posted it on my Instagram. Someone asked was I alone. I zoomed close to the glasses and thought a ghost was near me praying. I was freaked out for 4 days then I zoomed in closer and I see an angel praying, see his wings, eyes, nose. I am truly bless.
