Narcolepsy and the Quad

A couple strengthening each other's weaknesses through God's love and life's lessons.

Too much time lost worrying…

Matthew 6:34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” This is one of my favorite verses. I can tell you many stories revolving around this verse. I use to find myself worrying about the future a lot. I would imagine how I wanted things to work out but we all know life doesn’t work out that way. I was […]

Devyn’s Testimony

So, Devyn is so behind on his posts, but I guess he has a good excuse. He has been hard at work with his lawn care business the past couple of months and it’s only getting busier.

The ups and downs of my emotions, energy, and fights have decreased tremendously since starting xyrem. Amazing is all I can say. At one point I was up to 30mg ER […]

Lesson 1: How to be a quadriplegic

A week after my accident I was flown to Shepherd Center in Atlanta where I underwent strenuous physical rehabilitation. They were going to teach me what I needed to know about living from this point on as a quadriplegic. I actually don’t even remember too much of the first week after my accident. I really only recall getting loaded up in the airplane and flying to Atlanta. I still wasn’t […]
