I was not able to read the whole article yet... but based on what I did read, I just want to say: YAY! what an adventure! and... I wish I could do that!
Thanks for sharing your story Karen. I love the photos.
LOL, you should have seen how long it took me to write it! Just like when you are at the Dr's office, just look at the pics.
I was asked to post something about the trip (with pics of course) by some of the members as it is so seldom any of us gets to do something like that. And who knows when it will happen again
One never knows with this illness. But, I wanted to share the adventure as I enjoy reading and seeing pics when anyone of us is able to do or go somewhere. It gives me courage to keep fighting and not get so upset when things are not going so well.
- back to you,
If you scroll down to the Petroglyph pics where I am standing at the edge of the "lookout", notice how close I am to the edge as Sushi says "Step back a bit. It will be a really good shot!"
K2 for Hope
Great write-up! So glad that you shared the story of Phoenix Rising members actually discovering that we exist outside of cyberspace, have personalities, care for each other and that there is the possibility of occasionally sharing adventures together--even heavily "accommodated" adventures!
Loved that you included pictures! More proof that we actually did this!
Hi Karen--AT this point I have finished the article. Well done.
I wish I was there. I haven't taken a vacation out of state since 1984.
Thanks for helping me actually get there! (Even with all the U-turns and lost directions...)
I wanted this to be a "feel good" article as sometimes I do feel like I'm just an invisible person with an avatar on the forum...
I only hope that more of us can do more of this!
Oh, Dreambirdie, I know exactly how you feel. That was one of the reasons for publishing this.
Sometimes, I wish we all lived in a "little" country somewhere.... with Dr's and caretakers and friends where we could at least get together once in a while - even just for dinner, so we could see each other's faces with that understanding that only those of us who are truly ill understand and know about.
thanks so much for sharing. this is amazing.
I do think it would be really nice if we had a teleporter we could use to have visits like this, even if for some of us it would be more like having a cup of tea or watching movies, rather than seeing the sights
A teleporter? Yikes, would we get some kind of notice????
yes, it would be entirely directed by the users!
do you think I read too much science fiction?
Second Life has a teleporter but, alas, it only teleports Avatars!
But if you think about the stats on this illness, it would seem that about 1 in 300 have this illness and some of them are bound to be your neighbors. I know of 5 in my area (most on this forum) and we do communicate and even occasionally see each other!
Karen, Adin and Jen used a teleporter though a very old fashioned kind with 4 wheels and a big engine!
I thought this whole illness was science fiction. (at least I used to think so.... )
I mean where else can you go to do less???? I'm almost sure we live in another world...
wow a dream story come true
I wish some one would port our TV (teleport) to Pluto
I feel more hopeful in Australia, and that the Lyme people are leading a charge of the cavalry.
OK, for those that asked... here are some of the rest of the pics. You need to open the first one to see the caption and then just scroll to the right to go through them.
Great to see more pics. Thank you Karen!
Easier for those of us who are not "scientists" and hopefully, will give some hope to all!
K2 did you pick up some great snake stories??
do they have snakes there??
