I looked at many small film lists and then I came across the really really big list - The 1001 films you must see before you die. And I thought, that sounds really morbid, but I'm in pain in a wheelchair, am I really living? How long would this take me to do? 30 sounds like a nice round number, I'll pick that. After having several surgeries, I wasn't entirely sure I would make it 30 so I would try to watch what I could while I had the time.
Not only did I have several surgeries, but I had rehab and lots of therapy. I learned what triggers my seizures and try to avoid them, which isn't always possible but I no longer rely on medication every day. After 3 years of constant work, I can now walk completely unassisted. And after being told by a fertility clinic it was impossible for me to have kids, I am now expecting a baby due in October.
I am so happy at everyone who stops by my blog, and I enjoy reading your comments. I also enjoy reading many other film reviewer's blogs as well. I have been pain free for almost a year now. It feels really great. I am now watching films as my schedule allows me. When my baby is born I will retire to being a full time mom, which I am excited about. This will also allow me to spend more time with my daughter.
