Many individuals along my journey have looked quite puzzled when I tell them I was injured by a scuba diving mask. Trust me, it took me some time figure it out for myself, over 6-months to be more precise. I finally had a chance to return to the scene of the crime and recreate the event (to the best of my recollection). While it proved to be a rather emotional process, it was also incredibly helpful to walk through everything I did remember from that day as it stirred up some additional memories and details, I had forgotten. This is the best I can do to piece it all together... laughing is allowed and encouraged.

No Perfection Here
I use speech-to-text to draft my stories. If one of my daughters has capacity to proof and edit, they graciously do. However, that is not always feasible so I might post a story without any real editing - deal with it:) I am also recording each story so those that struggle to read, like I do now, can have an alternative. I make mistakes recording to - never know what you might hear!
