CNA Chronicles: Grave Visits

Since my last CNA quit I’ve had 3 new one’s here. There was one young girl that danced with me. I wrote about her last week but she wasn’t able to return because she got fired from the company. This meant I had to get someone rather quickly. Well, Sunday I didn’t have any care […]

Precious Moments

Yesterday my CNA and I made cookies and danced. While in the kitchen stirring she did the foot dance moves while I did the top half dance moves from my wheelchair. Doing that for me was deeply touching. A CNA does more than cook and clean. She is often emotional support as well. Like health […]

Therapy Review: CNAs. Anger. Touch. Pain.

I’ve been struggling emotionally since the GYN appointment. It was a bit much for me. Sleep has been rough and anxiety has been really high. I’m kind of struggling a bit.

CNA Chronicles: Temper Tantrum

Part of me wants to laugh because of how absurd this is, but the other part of me is sad with a broken heart. My CNA quit this morning! She didn’t quit the company, she quit me because I sent a text saying that she needs to have transportation by the end of the month […]

Negative

Her test was negative. I can breathe a sigh of relief! Today is my CNAs last day. I’m a little bitter because she didn’t turn out to be who she so loudly claims. The hunt continues. Faith

Care Plan

Nothing is business as usual while waiting for a fast track COVID – 19 test. I definitely lost sleep over it last night but I was able to get a good nap. I feel much better. The nursing company said I’d know more about the care plan today which is that I will have the […]

COVID-19 Shock

I don’t know if I should cry or fall to my knees and pray. Wow. Ok so, my Saturday CNA is being tested for COVID-19 during which time I was instructed to quarantine alone. No care. No CNAs. No nurses. Just me. This should be interesting. There’s a lot going through my head right now. […]

My Funeral: One Last Cup

How do you want your funeral? That’s the question we’ve been discussing. I swear I don’t have morbid friends or plans to exit, but we have talked about these things especially since we’ve lost good friends recently. I found the perfect urn for myself. Anyone who knows me knows this is in fact the urn […]
