It’s part “circumstance” and mainly how inaccessible my hometown is. Although it’s repetitive, I try to keep myself productive so that I can keep myself grounded and mentally okay. Some days are okay, and some are not. Today’s video was definitely a good day 🙂 If you like this video, please hit ‘LIKE’! If you like me, hit ‘SUBSCRIBE’! 🙂

  1. I’m not disabled but I definitely feel for the social isolation. Idk if you remember me but I used to walk the big fluffy white dog around your college (: I ended up moving to raceland after getting married and its pretty lonely out here. I don’t have many friends to visit so its really just me and my dogs on this quiet farm lol. It takes a lot of mental strength to deal with being alone all the time.

  2. I likes the pice of piano, I am actually trying to learn music too! And i feel isolated too because it is hard to meet people that do not juge you be cause of your disability.

  3. I wish you all the best, I think you're a real fighter in life. For many, this is a typical day, those that have disability in their lives must work harder to get through the day and enjoy even the most simple things of life.
