Hi Everyone and welcome to LifeIsInReach.com
Life brings to all of us so many ups and downs. While it’s exciting at times, stressful at others and maybe even painful, having to live our lives with some restriction or limitation in our physical movements only adds to our everyday stresses. Just the simple act of brushing your own teeth might be a miraculous accomplishment for the day.
In a world where people are already enacting plans to set up colonies on Goldilocks planets, right now, hear on earth so many of our population struggle just to get out the front door of their house. The simple movements in life can be a struggle for so many.
My name is Frank. I was born into a loving family with traditional family values but into a culture that loved to eat. Not that eating was priority number one but because it was how we socialized and shared our lives with others. It was our way to welcome people to our homes.
Your typical American birthday party might consist of cake and hotdogs and games. Well, in our culture it was not a rare sight to see a birthday party mirror what looks like a village fiesta. So yes I became a master of the art to taste testing.
I was a pretty active young man for the majority of my youth and into my late 30s. Karate and Baseball as a kid. Football became my passion as a teen and I stayed pretty active in basketball and softball as a young adult.
I would be the first tell you, though I was active, I’ve struggled with my weight all my life. I still do today. While I’m still trying to get my weight down and get my health right, I have to figure out ways to do certain things today that were so much easier before.
Clipping toenails is not an easy task these days. Bending down to pick up my keys I dropped on the floor is not something I look forward too…especially in public.
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
While it is embarrassing for me to share that, I know that so many people share the same simple challenges. Sadly many have more serious difficulties than I do. Some are due to weight issues like me, others have been in accidents, and there are those who have unfortunately been medically diagnosed with conditions that make daily-living almost impossible.
It is one thing to simply be overweight. So, I’m thankful that there are better choices I can make to change my situation for the better. But others don’t have that chance and some of those people just happen to be close family members or friends.
You see I have a very special person in my life that suffers from a condition called “Ankylosing Spondylitis”. I probably never would have heard of that condition if it wasn’t for this person I know. If you have ever seen a person that is always hunched over walking then you’re looking at a similar, if not, the same condition. You can easily find details about it with a simple google search. Suffice it to say it really makes life a challenge. Just turning his head to see what’s on your left can be excruciatingly painful.
I’m always on the lookout to find things that can make my life a little easier. So when I see things that can help others as well, I just want to share it. Especially to that person I know.
This is just one way I can see to help those who have done so much for me. I’m figuring there are a lot of people who would like to find things that can help make their lives just a little bit easier but are a bit prideful or perhaps scared to reach out and ask.
