Disability Free December – the second!

Last year, I came up with a concept – Disability Free December.  After a year of diagnosis, and therapy, and medical professionals, and research – I had had enough!  I wanted time off from “being disabled and sick”.  So I decided to have a break.  One month of no appointments that were disability or illness related.  One month of no research or advocacy.  One month – free!

It worked so well that I am doing it again this year.  I have no appointments lined up for December.  Not for me, or either of the boys (other than Quinn, who will do a couple of Occupational Therapy sessions to end the school term).  Obviously if one of us gets sick, then I’ll do what I have to do, but as a general rule – no appointments.  I will concentrate on Christmas and family.  I’ll do some scrapbooking and writing.  I may end up doing research or advocacy, but ONLY if it pleases me to do so at the time, instead of from some form of feeling that I “should”.

I love this time of year that is about to descend upon us 🙂
