blogging really helps me because it passes the time these days

I can’t really remember if problogger was the first actual blog I knew of as a blog but I will tell you that problogger was the first blog that made me realize I could use the internet to express myself.
I have always enjoyed writing but I never understood the impact blogging would have on my life. When I was hospitalized I actually missed blogging but at that time I simply didn’t have the physical energy to write.
Now I am realizing another benefit that I never expected and that is it helps me pass the time. While I am on dialysis for kidney failure I am often seen typing out my latest blog post. It helps me pass the time and the community I have bulit around this blog is helping keeping my spirits up these days

what is the difference between augmentive communication and assistive technology?

Augmentative communication and cerebral palsy, and assistive technology are often spoken about interchangeably. As I understand it, augmentative communication is meant to refer to technology that will give people who otherwise have difficulty speaking due to illness or disability a voice. I personally equate assistive technology to things like reacher’s to help you reach for things and other physical items that make living with a physical disability or other impairment easier.
I think often times this all gets confused in the realm of cerebral palsy because a lot of people with cerebral palsy use both forms of technology. I am happy to help by means of clarifying the differences between the two forms of technology and I am personally excited to see the advancements and allow people have the flexibility and independence in their lives. There are a vast variety of options available in both forms of augmentative and assistive technologies, some are even considered mainstream now. Continue reading

finding nemo: being a little fish in the big blogging ocean

You know when your excited about something, and you want to reach that goal that you have set your mind to? when I started blogging years ago my goal was to get on Problogger. When I first had a clue what blogging was, it was because of Darren at Problogger who showed me the new road of blogging. It took me a few years of reading Problogger to realize that I too had something to contribute  to the online space. Before I started blogging I worried because I didn’t know that I had any value to offer, or at least I wondered if anyone else would see value in my words.I decided to try a little experiment it was then that I bit the bullet so to speak and started blogging myself.
