Why are we celebrating?

Why are we celebrating? Tagged with:

On the day we remember Dr. King, the man who was instrumental in writing the Civil Rights Act, which was signed in 1964 to benefit all Americans, there is still one group of citizens who still wait. These are the 57 million Americans with disabilities who are still waiting to have laws passed over 40 years ago to address issues such as basic fitness, recreation, and sport participation.

January is thyroid awareness month. Thyroid conditions are an issue that most people don’t realize they have; or in my case been dealing with the condition for 22 years. Fatigue is usually the first noticeable symptom and then a laundry list of others follows.

To Celebrate or Not To Celebrate! Tagged with:

There are many times on social media that I will see friends of mine post that “today was the day I had my accident” or “today I celebrate my 10th year as being a person with a disability.”   Now, I am all for celebrating! I just wonder if people are celebrating for the right reasons. Is the day of your accident a time to celebrate?

Exercise tips for people with disabilities

Exercise tips for people with disabilities Tagged with:

It’s important that people with disabilities lead a healthy active lifestyle and that having a disability should not exclude anyone from being active. As the saying goes the “only disability in life is bad attitude”, people with disabilities like to exercise just like anyone else. It’s sad to note that many communities emphasizes on physical exercise only for people without disabilities not providing any services or adaptions for people with disabilities and chronic illness. This is unfortunate since many people with disabilities are inactive and have a higher risk of contracting cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and other diseases that arise due to lack of physical fitness.

The Giggles

The Giggles Tagged with:

Dr. Bloom and I recently debuted a scene from Macbeth at Spain Rehabilitation Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. The Scottish play, as Macbeth is often referred to, is dark, and that’s putting it mildly. Macbeth murders the King of Scotland at the urging of his wife, she gets mad at him for not planting the daggers on the sleeping grooms, then she murders someone, and on it goes! They both descend into madness with hand washing fetishes.

As the ancient Chinese poet and philosopher Lao Tzu stated, “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”

Remember the Guinness Commercial?

Remember the Guinness Commercial? Tagged with:

Back on September 13, 2013, is when I first saw the Guinness commercial that featured a person with a disability playing wheelchair basketball with some of his friends without a disability. Almost immediately I knew this commercial was going to be talked about for a long time, as well as make me want to have a drink.
