In the past, my number 1 priority was Nathan’s rehabilitation. I spent time every day learning, reading, researching. I was always up to something, trying out a new therapy, learning about new healing techniques.

During my trip to Colombia in May of this year, everything changed. Some stuff happened (not ready to talk about that yet) and it led to a complete spiritual awakening for me. My perspectives changed, my priorities changed, and for 4 months now, I’ve been living my life very differently.

Instead of hyperfocusing on Nathan, we are following a gentle, sustainable rehabilitation plan. I don’t plan on changing much or doing any intensives in the next few months (years??).

My focus has shifted to internal healing. Whereas in the past I thought the most important thing to heal was Nathan’s body, I finally understood that his mind is very healthy and what I need to work on healing is my own mind. Releasing old negative patters and establishing new healthy patterns. This will, in turn, help my children to be happy, well adjusted human beings.

I haven’t written much lately in this blog because I don’t have much to share in terms of therapies, equipment, nutrition, brain plasticity, etc etc etc. Plus the few spare minutes that I have that aren’t dedicated to work or the children, I dedicate to myself – journaling, exercising, meditating. I try to do at least one of these things every day.

Yet today I decided that I can just talk about our days. I’m going to start talking about the little things that we do day by day, the little lessons, the little experiences that make life so rich. That way this blog won’t be so abandoned.

Thanks to all those who keep coming back, even after months of silence. Thanks to everyone who has called, emailed, txt’ed me asking what’s going on, because you knew something wasn’t right. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate knowing that we are not in this alone.


  1. A very nice post. I deeply understand every single word. My English is not good but I am in the same process, however not that successful as you. 🙂 On the other hand Oliver has been so happy child as never before.
    I wish you all of you all the best and I am so glad I found your blog.

  2. I’m glad.
