While working on a post for Valentine’s Day and my husband and my upcoming 10th wedding anniversary, I was reading through some of my past posts. I also noticed the blog celebrated it’s second anniversary, which seems unreal when thinking about all that has occurred and how I have changed during the last few years. I will be posting later this week, but thought this particular post was important enough to reblog. Enjoy!

My Unplanned Life...

On Valentine’s Day my husband and I celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary. We were unable to celebrate in the usual fashion since once again I am on a new medication and having some difficulties with the side effects. That evening we retreated to the family room, each in our favorite chair with laptops in place. In my most romantic flannel pajamas and wrapped up in my favorite blanket we watched a movie, which title escapes me. My husband continued his quest to find a job since he was downsized at the end of last year.

About mswd

I am an individual living with a spinal cord injury. How the injury occurred, how I found out how severe my injury was and how my planned life suddenly became 'unplanned' is included in this blog. Also included is how the injury has tested my family and me. I believe you will discover it has been both a mentally and physically challenging ordeal and I learned a few lessons along the way. While I am still defining my life’s purpose since the injury, I have uncovered those who are injured, live with pain or have other obstacles to navigate are never able to escape. However, come with me as I explore ways to improve my life, learn to live with multiple neurological conditions, educate others and look for the silver lining. I believe with a little willpower, my caring family and God's guidance I will learn to forgive, hopefully forget how I was treated and dismissed by a doctor and uncover life's new purpose. I pray for painfree days and answers to questions that keep swirling through my mind. I also pray for a cure for neurological conditions and for the doctors to treat their patients with respect. Welcome to my journey. I would love to hear about yours!

    I enjoyed re-reading this post (and you are an angel). One of the nice benefits of writing a blog like this is that you can go back and remember so well what was going on and how you felt and thought a year or two ago (like diaries in the older days). Happy Anniversary on the 14th!
