A Slice of my Memoir

 For those of you who don't know, I met a girl named, Katherine at the camp that I used to go to. She is my best friend. We text every day. I write about her in my memoir. Here's a little preview:    The next day, we went on the Slip N’ Slide. It was placed on a grassy hill. It was a red tarp with a hose. When it was my turn, I was so excited! One counselor grabbed under my legs and one under my arm pits. Once I sat down on the tarp, I had a counselor sitting behind me and we slid down. Because the counselors were so young, they could just carry me up the hill. Katherine went ne ..read more

Instagram. For those of you who are not on that platform, I’ve been doing daily videos since December 2nd. They range from educating people about my disability to simply hoping people have a good day. It’s hard work thinking of ideas every day so if you have an idea, let me know. I’ve uploaded a small amount of content to YouTube also. I did speak to a class at Elmhurst University. It was on disability awareness. I changed it up and told them a story about a difficult week in my life. It was about caregivers calling off and what that means for me. I liked being vulnerable and sharing the not ..read more

Readers,   Thank you for a wonderful year. The lows were astonishingly low, and the highs were very high. I was at the lowest I’ve ever been this summer. That was a monstrosity. On the flip side, speaking to little kids and getting an article published certainly were wonderful moments. You were there through it all and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the steadfast support.  May we inch towards a brighter future in 2024!  Love to All,  Hannah ..read more

I go to many Elmhurst University events. I live very close to the school so there’s no reason not to go. Back in September, I saw that Karamo Brown who is a TV talk show host, reality television personality, author, actor, and activist was coming to Elmhurst. I was going to go even if they put an ocean in between the University and me. I was going even if there was a blizzard. Thankfully, I did not have any of those obstacles that autumn evening. Six weeks prior, I had texted my mom and asked if she wanted to go. She said no. However, my writing coach, Lex, was totally on board. He has an auth ..read more

You know the gang from Friends or How I Met Your Mother? My parents have that type of friend group. They are the most fantastic humans. Some of them literally were in the hospital room with my mother. They were watching All My Children with Mom experiencing contractions. I was coming! That day, I became part of a friend group that I would admire all my life. From begging to go on girl’s nights and Mom saying, “No, you have fun with Dad, OK?” Even at six years old, I knew those girl’s nights had to be more fun than having a bowl of Special K with Dad for dinner. Sometimes, he would take me swim ..read more

Pulling up to the farm, my heart was glowing. It was Joe’s birthday party and of course, Aviva, his little sister, would be celebrated too because that’s just how things work when you’re turning eight years old and have a six-year-old sister. Aviva was in a blue dress with daisies and Joe was in a blue shirt with cargo shorts. It had been a long three-hour car ride with my caregiver, Olivia. She has been with me for three years and has taken this trip with me once before. The kids ran to the car. Driving my wheelchair out of the car, Aviva ran up to me. “Hi, Aunt Hannah,” she said shyly. “Is t ..read more

Moving On in Gratitude

Lots of updates! Lots of updates!  First, I did find a new caregiver! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! My mom literally stopped her life to find candidates that I could interview. I chose a woman who has a ton of experience. We are two weeks in and she’s comfortable with my care. I’m so relieved! It was an exhausting few weeks and I would not wish that stress on my worst enemy. I’m emotional as I write this because I received cards, flowers, texts, emails, and a few of you even stopped by to visit. Having a support system like I do is the best gift I could have. To have everyone step up and r ..read more

The Saga Continues

She left the keys on the table and never came back. If you read the last post, you'll know the massive struggles I've had finding a caregiver. The saga continues because we found a woman who I liked. She had great experience, seemed competent, and was a positive person. For reasons I genuinely do not know, she left after only two days. I wanted to implode with anger. I don't have the answers. I'm back to doing interviews. If this were to happen at any other time, I would have to move back home to Glenview until we found someone. Thankfully, a graduate student at the University can come next we ..read more

             The dreaded pink line was there. I had Covid. It was there. It sat there on my kitchen table mocking my plans for the next five days.             “I think we should go to urgent care because I barely have symptoms, Olivia,” I said to my caregiver.             “You can’t have Covid. You don’t look sick. You’re not coughing. I think it’s allergies,” Olivia responded.           &nbs ..read more
