Denial is not a strategy

I took mom to the speech therapist this morning. She was supposed to help us organize the buttons on my mom's dynavox (her speech device) so she could find them.

But the upshot is that my mom just doesn't want to use them. It's too slow, hard, and limiting. She wants to type or write. She's wordy. Really really wordy. But she can't type very fast already.

In a few months, she won't be able to type or write. And she doesn't want to use any other method. She already can't use her right hand more than a couple of half hours each day.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
