Invisibility cloak no more!

In the first year after my accident I had a conversation with my sister Sharon and I remember telling her that I wished I had an invisibility cloak like Harry wore in the Harry Potter books. (He was able to wear this cloak and move about without being seen.) I wished I had one so that I could go out in public without being seen and without having people look at me. I wanted to go out in public, but it wasn't worth the trouble of feeling like I stuck out like a person that was so obviously different from everyone else.

I'm happy to say that now after almost seven years since my accident, I've conquered this fear, and I now not only feel okay in public, but I actually want to go out and do things. I never thought I would change my mind about this, but I have, and I feel so happy. I attribute this change to making new friends. Having friends makes me feel "normal" in a lot of ways again, and I'm so thankful for that!

I think the fact that you desire to go and do things and be with people speaks volumes! To have made the shift from where you were to where you are is huge! You are a wonderful example to finding joy no matter what. :)
