It may seem a little silly for someone who struggles with a disability to "set goals". I think that for the most part, society expects disabled individuals to just sit at home and do nothing. They can't work. They can't do the same things neurotypical folks can do, so why would they focus on setting … Continue reading Setting goals for 2019

It has been difficult to keep on top of things. I did get to go on vacation with my dad for a week, which turned … Continue reading Adrenal Crisis Update
I have been confused by this for a very long time. Some credible online resources claim that Optic Nerve Hypoplasia (ONH), and Septo-Optic Dysplasia (SOD) are the same thing. I went on thinking that was true for the longest time, until I dug a little deeper and learned that there is, in fact, a difference.
