This is my piece of the world and welcome to it. You can learn more
about my journey as you go through the links and pages of this website. More
important is that if you need any of the information
referenced here that you search it out. Knowledge is the best type
of power to avail yourself to. With it there will be no bounds or
limitations to what you can do. Those of us with physical limitations
do not give up living. If anything we tend to appreciate it more and
make the most of what we have. I have not met many along this journey
that are dwelling in their own "pity party", just waiting for something
to happen while life passes them by. If anything they are very energetic,
dynamic individuals who are constantly finding ways to make theirs and
others lives easier.
As you will also see not all disabilities are easy to see on the first
glance. Not all those who are disabled are in wheelchairs. The person
with debilitating lung disease cannot wear their damaged lungs on the
outside of their chest just so that you can see they are disabled. The
person with a bad heart cannot wear their damaged heart on the outside
of their chest just to satisfy an onlooker. The hearing impaired do not
have to wear a sign for all to see indicating that they cannot hear as
well as those with good hearing. In the same way the speech impaired
do not have a noticable deformity to indicate they are challenged in any
way until you try to communicate with them. The speech impaired are not
necessarily hearing impaired. Those with neurological impairments do not
necessarily have to have their brain or damaged nerves on their sleeve for
all to see.
As you go through these links I hope you learn that whether disabled or not
we each have challenges that we face everyday. The big thing is to have
the compassion to accept everyone on the same level.....as a human being.
Patience and compassion are the greatest lessons any parent can teach their
child as they grow up. To teach them to appreciate life, even the little
things that sometimes get lost in the rat race that society has become.

Trach-ties is not a business or enterprise. It is the one thing amongst those with trachs that holds us together. I am just someone that wants to let those with some disabilities that life can be lived despite any disability.
