  • "I Voted" Sticker

    Tuesday, November 4, 2008 | An Inspiring story

    I think we can all agree tonight is a historic night. Regardless of how you feel about Obama I hope we are all inspired by the amazing turnout and the emotional investment in this election we have never seen before.
    Today I was doing rounds at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. It is common to have many folks hanging out in the waiting rooms outside of the surgical ICU waiting for the "5...

  • The CP

    Sunday, September 12, 2010 | An Inspiring story

    I started the CP diary (already written a small journal about it) so that I could work on my emotional and physical problems having had very little support, as a child dealing with what I now know to be CP. 
    I like to think that the site has now become ‘a community forum’ to help others, as well as me, it’s not just a CP site any more. It’s a site that incorporates no...

  • My website

    Thursday, October 21, 2010 | An Inspiring story

    My website has been up and running for 5 months now. What started as my own personal site, has since developed into an invaluable source of information on my experiences of living with CP and anything that deals with well-being; it also includes daily blogs, which people can comment on.
    The site is not only for me so that I can work through what I deal with; my emotional ...

  • Calm

    Tuesday, December 24, 2013 | An Inspiring story

    I have calmed down a bit over this creation of an affair she created or fantasized about being with a younger dude who worked and all her sexual dreams she has had ect:
    But still in doubt i said before if her story made  sense from the start , i dont think my emotions would have went as far as they did
    Her verbal abuse also lingers in my mind , as well  and the one she did tell m...

    Sunday, January 5, 2014 | An Inspiring story

    I am sorry you feel this way , so numb inside,
    i would love to make it go away , to give you the strength to love me again
    As of now i am fighting for , for you to make me feel like i am your man
    The rush of love i have for you wants to come out, but i can not release it when i am feeling doubt

    you were frantic with fear 
    You said you loved ...

    I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Nobody would ever understand what a moment in my life this is for me except people going through the same things. This morning I took the dog for a walk. And walk usually consists of in the are of my town houses. It has been a long time (3 years) I have been trying to do certain things alone.
    So, today (just now) I took the dog and I have been working on a goal to walk to thi...

  • My feelings in someone else's words

    Monday, October 13, 2014 | An Inspiring story

    October comes in innocently enough, stretching the edges of summer into fall. But then, one night, seemingly out of nowhere, a cold chill touches my shoulders like a former lover I've tried to shake from memory. I shiver. My heart falls; I know that another long winter is approaching and I'm still alone.
    I hadn't planned it this way. I have always been open to love and relationships. I have held ...

  • Ha!
    Here's two for the days I've missed.
    I have to say how grateful I am for an acquaintance at my church, Judy. She is a bit melancholy at times and not shy about it. I don't mind a bit as I'm surprised to hear it from someone close to the "Greatest Generation" in age complain about, well, pretty much everything. But she is so charming about it! :)
    She is not all gloom and doom; quite the contra...

    "Goodbye Is All We Have"
    I'm soaring the sky
    I can hear the birds and man they don't lie
    How you gonna catch me, when I'm this high
    I'm moving on
    I got the words to a brand new song
    How you gonna catch me, when I'm this close
    Gone tomorrow here today
    Just in case you got somethin' to say
    I'll be leaving with the rest if
    Goodbye is all we have
