On Saturday, Jamie, Ani, and I joined about 1,000 of our fellow San Antonioans in support of common sense gun control.
A few tourists, upon realizing what we were doing, joined the parade.
People along the route applauded as they watched us go by.
As with anything in San Antonio, it was a pretty laid back, we’re having a party sort of atmosphere.
But March for Our Lives and the incredible ease with which people can get guns in this country is not fun and games. It’s a very serious issue. Ani returned from her really long Invisible Recovery hiatus to make a video about it.
This week on Invisible Recovery Ani talks about mental health. It’s a long one, but worth watching all the way to the end if you or a loved one deal with mental health issues (related to chronic illness or not). She missed last week because she was procrastinating on editing this video since it was such a big job.
This week’s Invisible Recovery is a short one. A few weeks ago Ani decided to start walking to help build her strength back up. Today she takes you with her on her first walk.
This week on Invisible Recovery, Ani talks about good days and bad days. She’s having more good days now than she was before, but she’s still having way too many bad days.
This week on Invisible Recovery, Ani takes you through the process of getting her hair cut. It was a hard decision for her to make. She loved her long hair. The little guys and I appear briefly in this one.
This week Ani interviewed one of her friends who has a suspected, but undiagnosed, chronic illness.
In this week’s video Ani takes a little break from talking about chronic illness issues and plays with a speech jammer.
Ani’s fourth video is about the future and doing what is realistic and what makes you happy even if you have to totally revise what you thought the future would be like because of chronic illness.
Ani’s third video involves being ridiculously hyper and three grumpy pets. Our animals have been very good companions for her since she’s been so sick and in so much pain.
Ani’s second video went up on Invisible Recovery yesterday. This one is the ten things people say to her all the time.
