I had the best trip ever! I went to Austin for the annual Cure SMA conference. (In case you don't know, SMA is the genetic disease I have that has me super disabled and semi-bionic.)

I met a bunch of other people with SMA (some of them I knew from online groups already), such cool cool people of all kinds. I also got to see demos of new and exciting tech. I got to talk to representatives from the drug companies that distribute SMA drugs (even ones that are still in clinical trials). I also attended a bunch of workshops and learned a lot 😃😃

It was so cool, so motivating and empowering!!! If I'm honest, I get down a lot regarding my disability, even after years of work to accept it, but this conference left me feeling more optimistic than ever before. ☺☺☺

I finally got my butt in gear to get a new power wheelchair (current one is 6 years old which is a bit on the old side), and I just got an appointment at a wheelchair clinic scheduled for next month :funfact:
