I Drove Alone!

Alright, I caught a little flack regarding my gnarly scab photo. Sorry guys. The photo WAS pretty disgusting. I get so disgusted by myself with this head situation I just want to vent.

Anyway, on to some good news....I DROVE ALONE!!! I am finally cleared to drive, and it feels amazing. Freedom! My mom is slightly nervous, but Danny put in a good word for me and my mom trusts his judgment. I used my get-out-of-jail-free card to get to the gym. It was nice to enjoy the 80 degree weather with my windows down. If I still had hair I'd have to use the air conditioner, but with this little buzz cut of mine I can be in a wind tunnel and my hair would still look the same. Definitely one of the perks of man hair.

I was talking with my brother the other night about my progress and I had an epiphany. Kaal was telling me how great things will be when I get back to normal, and I realized he's right, that things WILL get back to normal. I'm starting to drive, my speech is working out the kinks, I'm working out (albeit walking not running), and my life is getting back to normal. Sometimes I lose the big picture. I can get so caught up in the small things that I don't realize how wonderful my brain is progressing. Leave it to my brother to give me that positive spin. He's always been good at that!


  1. I hope you are driving the green turtle! I will be looking for the big smile in a green turtle(with the window down). Hats off to the big brother for telling it like it is. Progress...progress... progress. Rememember no texting while you are driving you know:)

  2. Jess:
    I forgot to say I will be the guy in the dirty Suburban waving at you!

    Congrats Jessica on another BIG accomplishment- driving again! I too have a short man's haircut just cuz I am older and it is easier. While none of us who write here have been through what you have, we all have seen your progress with every post. You are amazing!!!

  4. Congratulations on your new freedom!!! I should meet you at the gym. Are you still doing yoga? I'm glad you are seeing the progress you HAVE made, instead of the progress you have yet to make. I miss you and I am so happy to hear that you are taking such good care of yourself with your smoothies! Let me know if you want to meet up to go to the gym, or anywhere else!
    Love, Sarah
