SPEAK OUT! Itty-Bitty GIANT Steps
Lisa Head…My Itty-Bitty Giant Step is that today, after rehab, I changed the spark plugs in my car. It required me to follow three steps. I was slow, but it went very well. I’m excited that I am learning new things!
Jodi Jizmejian…A few days ago when my husband (my caregiver) and I were grocery shopping, I was looking for an item on my list and walked past the water and REMEMBERED that I needed distilled water, which was not on my handwritten list, but was on a list in my phone. My husband said, “In the past, you wouldn’t have remembered.” Yay for me! My “memory” is igniting.
DuWayne Hall… Itty-Bitty Giant Steps – what does it mean? I lost a friend. I do not mean that the friend died – I mean that I had a friend, and then I didn’t have a friend. Well, my PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) has kept me from feeling for 23 years, and last month that all changed overnight! It took a female friend’s attention to snap me out of it, and I am excited. It was my friend that I lost. She is having the same issues I am, and we are relearning feelings together. I’m having a hard time trusting emotion that I have not felt for years. We are working on it as a team.
Cheri Richardson Hicks…I just changed Carson’s diaper. Granted, it was a pull-up, but it was much harder than changing Spencer’s diaper. (Carson is two years old, and Spencer, 6 months old.) Baby steps. All I want to do is be a mommy again.
Cheri Richardson Hicks…I, yes – meeeeeeee, just got Spencer out of bed, fed him a bottle, and changed his diaper. No easy task for an almost 20-pound baby. He sort of had the look on his face of being in a roller coaster ride the whole time. But I did it!
YOU did it!
