Road to Mobility: Beignet Training session #1

Originally I had been training Beignet to be a service dog and eventually with all my pain from broken rods and then surgery recovery, It kind of fell by the way-side, however, I am getting back into it. Today We started training to try to get her to retrieve coke plastic bottle for me (in case I dropped it or something).

new business adventure; Becoming an Avon rep.

As someone with a disability, the future is always uncertain and scary. I have always had doubts and questions about what I could do as a job or career because anytime I get sick or have a pain day and end up in bed, the worry and doubt come in; “How will I work? No one will want to hire if I can never go into work!, How will I function at work with pain if my pain meds knock me on my butt and make me tired?” On and on, the worries come in and circle in my head until I am an emotional, anxious mess. 

That is the beauty of at-home businesses; you can be your boss, control when you work, your work can be done from a mobile device or computer, etc. 

Avon is technically not new to me; my Mom used to sell it when I was in High school and I did help her by promoting them at school. I enjoyed it and I am very social when not in pain, plus I know how to use my social media outlets to my advantage. 

Hopefully, I will have luck with it 🙂 Anyway, if interested in ordering with me here is my website https://www.youravon.com/jcormier

Wish me luck! ❤

Cashapp or Paypal: Be a pal and help me!

Back in Sept or October, I accidently dropped my laptop and since then it has been on the fritz not turning on unless plugged into a TV screen via HDMI cable (until recently when that even stopped working) and I am currently using Ipad tablet, mobile phone, and mom’s laptop to take care of things I need to do online; However, I like to blog and do Youtube. I cannot do these things without proper equipment. I have a tripod, I have a 10 year old camcorder (Toshiba HD camio I think—could use a newer more updated one), a 4 year old digital camera that has video capabilities (Olympus TG-4); I also have several different web-cams.

In addition to equipment, I also need money to implement some of my content ideas: Shopping hauls, bark box for Beignet, Pet store trips with Beignet and buying whatever she “touches,” As Seen On tv product testings, doing stuff with my fiance’ niece, Serenity, in addition to other things that would be fun content. however, it all requires money and due to having been in a $700 apartment+ $222.00 in internet/cable at Cox+ $20.00 water bill+$60-$100 (varies) Electricity bill and only receiving $783.00 in SSI a month and my fiance’ currently out of work and despite putting in multiple applications and resumes in various places, he is having a hard time finding a job.
Thankfully Feb. is our last month of rent, we don’t have any internet/cable with cox this month, we do have the water and electricity that equals about $50.00-ish, but then we also have a few bills here at my parents house- they let us move in while they truck drive: No rent, we handle: cat food, water bill, internet, and electricity- but for this month we just have the water bill for mom’s house and thats about $30.00 ish.

I know after this month, things won’t be as stressful money wise. so even if its just a few dollars, it will greatly be appreciated and with your help, you can help build a better channel/blog with better content from me! So thank you in advance!

Much Love,

– Jamie

New youtube Video- Facebook Live video

I did a Facebook live at 4 this morning, having not had much sleep due to massive pain and spasms from the cold, wet weather here in Louisiana.

It is very random and silly, I was sleep-deprived (I did have a few hours, not many), on pain meds and melatonin that had the opposite result of what they normally do- normally knock me on my ass and make me sleep but no luck this time.

It is rather hard to sleep through what feels like every muscle in your back/spine tightening, twisting, pinching, jumping, and twitching. It feels very weird and can also make the nerves in your insides itch a lot!

Rewrite the stars- Greatest Showman song- relates to my relationship with my fiance’

Last night, I was on my pain meds and as usual the drugs made me a sappy, hormonal, emotional wreck; especially when all they do is make me tired and don’t actually help my pain, and as tired as I am, I cannot get comfy enough to actually go to sleep- which causes me to become irritable, frustrated, and emotional. Warning: Below, is how I feel on those kinds of days. You’ve been warned.

Don’t get me wrong, I do absolutely love my fiance’ and most of the time I cannot absolutely at all fathom my life without him, but on my really bad pain days when I am cooped up in the house on pain meds and can’t stand my own life, I relate to Zendaya’s lyrics of the song.

He is so positive and confident about us, and I am like that girl (because of my age difference and looking like a kid, and my disability- the “mountains,” and “doors can’t walk through”) and what the world thinks. and just waiting for him to realize that it is hopeless and impossible for us to truly be happy together. I am always thinking “he didn’t sign on for all these issues: Me hurting all the time, me lashing out at him because I am hurting and frustrated; because I’m irritable.. How can I expect him to love me when I don’t even love myself?”

Maybe he’ll teach me a thing or two, or maybe if I have such idle time, pay attention to the negativity.
It’s a lot of self-esteem issues and idle time, pain meds causing depression, being bullied from a very young age (5 years old)- it’s hard to escape the “voices” of my past, but I am working hard on it because I do love him and I know he loves me.
