I think people are entitled to a birthday week, rather than just one day. Who can get in all the birthday goodness all in one day? There is so much to do!
I bought this necklace for myself because I am my own best friend (except for Kelly from Chemopolooza, of course). I had my eye on one like it just before I was diagnosed because it reflects the large paintings I do. (used to do)
I wish I'd bought this from SmokingLily (smokinglily.com).
I had a gift this year that blew me away. I am a very independent person and needing all this help has been frustrating. Due to my low immune system, I am not allowed to catch public transportation.
That's right. No buses etc. etc. It's been difficult to say the least because I have to call someone to get to my Dr.s appoinmtents, get groceries.... I generally stay in my area within a few blocks because I can't walk much farther. I've begun frequenting Starbucks because it's somewhere I can actually get to and I don't even drink coffee!
I have had a couple of volunteer agencies, who have been helping me as well. This is great and all but doesn't do much for the self esteem.
My parents gave me their car! I can't even believe it! Everything I've had I've gotten myself (up until now).
While I was gone for treatment my van sat idle for months and months. It died and I haven't driven for 5 months!
I can't tell you how amazing it feels to be able to get around yourself! My world has opened up from a few blocks to who knows where? Last night I drove all along the water and stopped briefly at all the spots I used to sit at on my breaks from school.
Look out world....I'm back....
