My maternal grandmother’s necklace broke tonight. The clasp and one of the plastic beads broke. I’m very sad about this. My grandmother died when I was young and I don’t have a lot of things that were her’s. I know that it doesn’t look like much but, It’s one of my most prized possessions. I know that it might be able to be fixed but it will never be same. I found this necklace in a paper bag in the attic a few years ago. It’s been wore to dinners, on holidays, vacations where I wore it to my first Broadway show and I’ve met many famous people wearing it. More importantly I gave me confidence and made me feel good when I wore it. It made me feel like a part of her was with me.
This is the second knit scarf that I’ve made.(The first one didn’t turn out that great.) I finished it last Saturday and I’m really proud of it. It’s made out of Feza Alp Dazzle yarn.
I admit this, I talk to myself. At least that’s what you think. I read this book a couple of years ago about this guy who technically talked to himself but, in actuality he was talking to the one women who he thought he could talk about anything with. The “girl that got away” in terms. The thing was is that she wasn’t really there. I figured out that I do the same thing, I talk to the people who just might understand or really listen to what I’m saying. I talk to my childhood best friend who died of cancer a few months ago. I talk to the guy who I have a huge crush on but, I will never get the chance with. I talk with the people who when I’m with them in person I have trouble getting the words out. I don’t really know why I do it. Sometimes it’s just easier to talk to nothing instead of something I guess. Maybe the reality of it all is that I’m lonely.
Yesterday I had an interesting encounter with a women who thought that Cerebral Palsy was a disease and not a condition or a disorder. To be honest I’ve never run into someone who thought this way. If I have they’ve never said anything to me. As a lot of you know I’m a person living with Cerebral Palsy. Mine is very mild and I walk on my tiptoes because of shortened heel cords. Every 4 months I have medical Botox injections in my legs to help with Spasticity.
I’m blogging about this because I want people to be aware of this condition. I want people to educate themselves on it because I don’t want to run into a person who feels this way again. I don’t want people to think that you can somehow “catch” this or that it’s contagious because it’s not. It’s something that you’re born with and you can’t get rid of it. Even if I had all the procedures I’d still be a person with Cerebral Palsy.
