To Celebrate or Not To Celebrate!

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.

Changes Large or Small

Changes Large or Small Tagged with:

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.

Diabetes and Exercise

Diabetes and Exercise Tagged with:

Whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, exercise is an important part of your management and treatment program. Weight loss and weight management are the most common reasons people give for starting an exercise program. However, exercise has so many more benefits than how it may, or may not, affect body size – especially for diabetics.

To understand how exercise benefits diabetics, it’s important to understand what diabetes is and how it affects your body.

AVOIDING DIABETES . . . and Adding 6 Years to Your Life!

AVOIDING DIABETES  . . . and Adding 6 Years to Your Life! Tagged with:

In honor of National Diabetes Month, I would like to share a VERY personal story. My mother was an insulin diabetic for most of her life starting back in the 1950’s until her passing away over two decades ago. Since she was taking insulin several times daily, I’m sure that diabetes was on her mind every waking hour. Point being, I realized if there was any “good news” about my mother’s diabetes, it was that I learned that diabetes should be feared and avoided at all costs.
