Coming to Terms Coming to terms with NMD (Aryanna's Story Part Three)

I am not about to define myself by a neuromuscular disorder nor am I going to let it define me.

 

 

 

Friday September.16.2011

Aryanna here again, and yes I am teaching thank you Jesus.  I felt like I had to prove myself over and over again simply because I am in this chair, simply because I have a neuromusuclar disorder.

Like having a condition that slowly eats at your muscles isn't bad at us, they want to act as if suddenly its going to make me unable to teach these kids, that in someway its going to make me not able to think or something.

Yes I have a neuromuscular disorder it affects mainly the muscles in my lower body, last time I checked my brain was just fine LOL! 

Thankfully I was able to reason with them and show them my teaching certificate and references that said I was completely capable.

I am teaching English and Creative Writing once again and the students have quickly learned not to judge the fact that I am in this chair, just because I am in this chair does not mean I am going to let highschoolers walk on me.

I have called a couple of students out on that once, they never did it again. 

Don't mess with Aryanna LOL!

Mostly though I have good students, who actually seem to think I am some kind of inspiration.  Maybe that's a good thing, but I don't really think of myself in that way.  I am just Aryanna, a young woman coming to terms with life with a Neuromuscular Disorder.

Anyway its Friday and I have had a long week and still have more papers to grade so I think I'll grade a few more have my devotional time, make sure I am right with the Lord, and then get my Sunday school lessons ready for the youth class.

I guess I don't believe in slowing down much lol.

The truth is I think in some ways I am afraid to slow down much.  I don't want to let this condition have the best of me.

I am not about to define myself by a neuromuscular disorder nor am I going to let it define me.
