It’s been awhile but i’m back with wheelchair wednesday: thanksgiving style 🦃 (a week late) how i get food in and out of the oven safely.
.
ovens can be tricky when you’re in a wheelchair. between lifting heavy pans in and out of the oven and getting close enough to make the transfer, i’ve had many close calls. this side oven door is on my future accessible home wish list. it’s so much easier and safer.
.
also i’ve been perfecting my roll making skills and this was probably my best batch yet - a thanksgiving miracle. still not as good as my sister-in-law’s skills, but i’m getting closer.

Today is the international day of disabled persons, before my accident i had no idea what does it means to be disabled.
i’d say the problem (in my case) is not my disability - it’s that germany 🇩🇪 is unfortunately not very wheelchair accessible and i missing elevators and escalators a lot, it’s a lot of making plans before i can go to most places.
here’s a video from my wheelchair training with my new @lashersport wheelchair, i worked really hard to master this transfers after my accident.
i hope i can help others with my videos and i can have a positive impact to someone.
this transfer is the most important for absolutely independence in my opinion, so i do training on stuff like this a lot.

Anfangs wusste ich auch nicht! es gab tatsächlich die möglichkeit wieder selbständig auto zu fahren um unabhängiger und mobiler unterwegs zu sein. dennoch war es ziemlich schwierig den schritt zu machen und wieder am steuer zu sitzen. selbst das ein und aussteigen war nicht so einfach wie vorher. doch ich habe mich getraut und diesen schritt gewagt bisschen übung und schwupp war ich wieder unterwegs. leute, traut euch ! einfach durchziehen und lächeln😁
-
ilk başta bende bilmiyordum!
tekrardan araba kullanabilme ve bunun sayesinde daha mobil ve daha rahat hayatıma bıraktığım yerden devam edebilme ihtimali var mış. baya zorlanmıştım tekrar direksiyonun arkasına geçmekten korkmuştum. İnip binmeside eskisi gibi kolay değildi artık. ama ben bu adımı atmaya cesaret ettim. İnip binmeyi de zamanla öğrendim. ve artık araba kullanıyorum inip binmeyide hiçbir yardım almayarak kendim hal edebiliyorum. Şükür ler olsun bu cesareti gösterebildim.
sizde cesaretli olun ve yapın. siz istedikten sonra herşeyi başarabilirsiniz biliyor sunuz değil mi ? cesaretle gülümseyin 😁

This is one of my favourite photos of this year so far. when i look at these photos it reminds me of the time when i wasn’t sure if being disabled is going to impact my relationship in a bad way. i wasn’t sure if my partner would perceive me more and more as a burden as time passes by. being in a relationship with someone who has a disability is not for everyone, sure. it takes more physical energy, you have to be veeeery patient and many every day scenarios will be slightly more difficult to handle. but what i’ve learned is that it doesn’t matter at all! my disability became a normal part of our relationship and over all it’s not that big of a deal.
but to be completely honest my bf was a little bit concerned at the beginning when he realized that he’s catching feelings for me because he had no clue what to expect. i don’t blame him, don’t get me wrong, but what i want to say is that people would be less scared of forming “interabled” relationships if abled bodied people knew more about disabled people. and on the other hand, it’s the disabled community who has to do their part too. go out there, make the effort to meet new potential friends and just show yourself!
don’t fear talking to people that are “different” – they won’t bite you. probably.
at least i can assure you that the guy who took this amazing shot definitely won’t bite you: thank you so much @chriswidmer.photography for the awesome photoshoot!

Nick hasn’t stood up in over a year under his own free will since his accident. although his legs don’t work and this was done with pure built strength and motivation it was still a feat to witness. many of you don’t get to see all the badass people i get to work with on a daily basis but i felt this needed to be shared. i love what i do and hope to be of assistance to many more in my lifetime. share the goodness! i’ll keep sharing positive like i always do. there’s too much s**t circulating in this world. lets change that!! #amireallystanding

I’m back in my gym routine for 2 weeks now, i had a lot of questions from you guys how often i go to the gym and what’s my strategy there to stay in shape.
i’m 4 times a week, i recommend fix days like monday, tuesday, thursday and friday to get into a real routine.
i’m training chest, shoulders and triceps - back and biceps two times a week.
on nutrition i only focus on kcal and protein (that system works for me), a training day is a 2.000 kcal day with 100g protein and a rest day is around 1.700 kcal with 80-100g of kcal. my weight is around 68kg.
i hope i can help with this information, because i really receive a lot of this questions. #gymmotivation #trainingmotivation

(🇬🇧🇺🇸⬇️ in the comment) 🎅🏼🎄❤️heute ist nikolaustag - in den niederlanden sinterklaas - und es gibt für euch ein tolles 💫 aktionsangebot:
seit 2017 ist mein rollstuhl mit den ergonomischen carbolife gekko greifreifen ausgestattet, die mir den alltag sehr erleichtern, und mein neuer rolli bekommt auch welche!
ich habe eine tetraparese mit fast voller handfunktion, aber eingeschränkter hand- und armkraft, so dass das fortbewegen mit dem ♿️manuellen rollstuhl für mich schwer ist und nur über kurze strecken klappt.
die gekko greifreifen bieten durch die eingearbeitete silikon-gummi lippe mehr grip so dass ich viel leichter vorwärts komme - für mich eine echte kraftersparnis.
das gummi färbt nicht an den händen ab, und auch bei nässe haben die greifreifen noch grip!
vielleicht sind die ja auch etwas für euch? ✨🎅🏼 🎄 als christmas special aktion könnt ihr bis zum 31.12.2019 auf der webseite von carbolife 🎁✨ 25 % aktions rabatt bekommen unter verwendung des gutschein-codes: sabine25 😊🌟
und nicht nur das! so können alle curve, curve l und gekko modelle im aktionszeitraum kostenlos individualisiert werden - mit dem eigenen namen, einem kurzen spruch oder ähnlichem.
das klappt ganz einfach, indem bei der bestellung auf der carbolife homepage im kommentarfeld der gewünschte text hinterlegt wird. 🎅🏼🎄🌟 das video hat 2 teile!
ich wünsche euch ein schönes wochenende, eure sabine

@life_goes_on_wheels has proven to the world that disability is not an obstacle to success. the best way you can help is to provide them unconditional love, support and patience.
i didn't expect her to say i am among her mentors coz as a matter of fact, she is my mentor.

may allah keep on blessing and protecting her.

Camera scope procedure is done and no obvious obstructions were seen by my committed urologist and her team, which is both very good news and adds to the continued pieces of the puzzle. my kidneys and ureters are clear and in great shape which means we don’t have to bother with them in my upcoming surgery. it also means i’m in a grey area where nothing is obviously wrong and in need of fixing, but i clearly need fixing since i’ve had probably 10 infections this year. my body has always been a pretty good puzzle so at least i’m consistent. onward we go. 👍🏻 .

This is my slide board. this piece of equipment was one of the first things i learned how to use in rehab. it was messy. i weeble wobbled like a maniac when i first learned how to use it. i even got dropped on the floor by staff while using this in the beginning of my therapy. but it allowed me to be able to get out of bed! it is the bridge for the gap between 2 surfaces. by the time i completed rehab they told me i may be able to start transferring without it very soon. that was exciting news for me! however, as some of you may remember, my outpatient therapy was less than stellar. at one point the therapist told me i would probably always have to use it and never be able to transfer without it 😒. i was so discouraged. .
.
but the other day, as i made my third transfer from chair to couch and back again, without the board, those words came back to me. i just want to go back to that therapist and tell her that she does not know my limitations. she does not know my determination. she does not know my ability. .
.
yes i still use a slide board. for uphill transfers and for transfers into a vehicle (where the gap is much bigger than my booty!). but that's it. i was able to get my hair done the other day and transfer into the sink chair without the board. i transfer from my bed to chair without the board. i transfer from chair to car seat and back without the board. i transfer to the toilet and back or the shower chair and back without the board.
.
.
bottom line-don't let anyone tell you what your limitations are. only you know them. and only you can push past them. you just have to decide that's what you want. .

Working hard behind the scenes. not everything you do has to be in the spotlight and i’m okay with that. i do feel guilty for not being able to keep up with goals that used to be a priority but are now on the back burner. i’m not posting nearly as much since my life isn’t nearly as interesting as it was during my initial recovery and preparation for the competitions i competed in.
-
-
regardless, i know what i’m doing and how much i’m working to get my life back after the accident. right now, completing college with honours and taking courses to improve my public speaking after graduation are at the top of my list.
-
-
but trust me, i cannot wait to get back to functional rehab, weightlifting, and focusing my energy on helping others with what i’ve learned in school as well as the mountainous obstacles i’ve faced throughout my life in the last six years.

-
it’s all relative.

Life with a spinal cord injury takes more. more time. more effort. more money. this morning i was scheduled to be at a breakfast from 7 am to 9 am @mozzapi. i hate being late. but 7 am is simply not realistic unless i get up way too early (i need/want my beauty sleep!). being the planner that i am, i decided to sleep in my pants so i could save 15 minutes in the morning. with a spinal cord injury you don’t just jump up out of bed and get dressed. or pee/poop. everything in life is planned and takes longer. it’s a process. got up this morning, skipped my morning tea/water (hydration to keep my blood pressure up) and left the house (lightheaded). i’m proud to say i arrived at 7:23 am. on the plus side, i had my first glass of hot chocolate in over five years. it was delectable! #sci #spinalcordinjury #paralysis #quadriplegic #tetraplegic #paraplegic #wheelchairlife #disabilityawareness #itstooearly #thesunisntupyet #ineedmoretime #breakfast #hotchocolate #chocolate #beautysleep #ihatebeinglate

A few days ago, it was the international day of people with disabilities. we need this day because there are so many misconceptions about what we go through. i still cannot get into buildings or bathrooms, i can’t get married without losing my benefits, and people with disabilities still have the lowest employment rate. the typical employment rate is around 69%. for people with disabilities, it is 19%....

if you take anything from this post, let it be to stop believing that ada laws protect us against discrimination, make it equally possible to get hired, or demand that businesses make their buildings accessible. this is untrue.

there are many, many loopholes to avoid complying with ada laws. and if it saves a business money, they will take the loophole over making accessible accommodations.

things like this still happen to me every. single. day. i hope that this makes my friends more aware of the fact that ada laws are not a saving grace for us. it is a recommendation at most.

thanks for coming to my ted talk.

Count your blessings:
for december we thought it would be a cute idea to elaborate on what we have both been very blessed with since the accident. it’s easy to focus on the negative aspects of our lives and one thing that has helped us is remaining positive through the times that are not so beautiful. so this holiday season we want to share with you what we feel we are blessed with during this time!
we are blessed with love. sounds very simple and cheesy yet it is so so true. let’s take this all the way back to the hospital where i was told that a security guard said to my parents ‘those girls are loved. this is the most people we have had in a waiting room.’ sometimes it can become easier to think things would of been better if we just passed yet when we think of all the love we had and still have we are reminded that not being here would of hurt more people than this actually has.
so to everyone who showed love whether you are family, friends, new friends or friends from the past, a coworker, our college professors, parents of the school, friends of my parents, and honestly anyone who showed up know we felt the love and we still do 💞

enjoy some of these that i feel just show the love. we love you all and appreciate all the love and support ❤️ #twinlove #spinalcordinjury #roadtorecovery #ashleynikkistory #ourstory #quadriplegic #paraplegic #badassesinthewheelchair #holidayseason #countyourblessings #support

I’m so thrilled to share this with you all. the debut performance from my dance company, @liberate_dance ❤️ >> swipe for full video >> this is such a huge milestone, i think i’m gonna cry again. and then again.
to @amandarose2512 - when i said i want to dance, you turned around and said “let’s make it happen”. looking back on that moment now, i’m so overwhelmed. you said yes, and you’ve not stopped supporting and encouraging me ever since. the way you’re using @move.momentum to not only grow dance for everyone, but to make my liberate dream a reality, is beyond admirable. the hard work and dedication you put in is immeasurable and i will be forever grateful.
to all the dancers at @liberate_dance , and those who couldn’t be there to perform, i’m so unbelievably proud of you. liberate only launched at the end of september and some of you have only started coming in the past few weeks! you’ve all worked your bums off to learn the choreography and perform so soon, and you all absolutely bossed it.
whatever happens with liberate now, you’re all liberate ogs. the originals. and i cant wait to grow this dance group with you ❤️ performed: @unit12cic 1.12.19

My cousin boris and good friend haschberger saw me walking autonomously for the first time after 16 years. on that day i made 18 steps in one run until i lost my balance. two months earlier i made my first steps. it was an unforgettable day, haschi, boris, jelle 💪🙏❤(2013)

mein cousin boris und guter freund haschberger sahen mich zum ersten mal nach 16 jahren wieder eigenständig laufen. an dem tag habe ich ganze 18 schritte in einem durchgang geschafft, bis ich das gleichgewicht verlor. zwei monate zuvor habe ich meine ersten eigenständigen schritte gemacht. es war ein unvergesslicher tag, haschi, boris, jelle 💪🙏❤(2013)

Oooopsie. did i miss #internationaldayofpersonswithdisability? does that make me all cool and utopian, or “asian and ignorant”? maybe i was just busy tryna get s**t done (i was on a smoke break in the pic, ok) because after being on a wheelchair for 29 years, you kinda just realise that life doesn’t give you a free (all caps out of habit) pass at anything. nor does it take credit for all the hands you’ve played and won. it just... keeps on going on, and you just have to find ways to keep up. and on a personal level, that should really be the whole point of commemorative hashtag activism days like today. not to highlight dated plight and challenges that most people likely got over a decade ago. or claim stake in the triumphs of others. but to honour the strength and courage and f**k you attitude that get us by everyday. because *phew* let me tell you, it’s no walk in the park (yes, i did just do that). and the biggest pain in the a*s has always been mindset. so perhaps, maybe, just possibly... if everyone stopped focusing on how we “need help to be strong” (who said we were weak again?), stopped spending money to speak on our behalf (build lah ramps ke, more parking lots ke, lifts ke) and quit “starting conversations” on all the disability stuff (it’s like beating around the bush when all you really want to talk about is how awesome we make living look), we’ll all level up in being better, cooler, less shallow humans. (btw, is it too late for me to throw a party in conjunction with this day @melnambiar?) #spinalcordinjury #thewheelchairlife #peoplewithdiabilities #paraplegic #malaysia #brunei #singapore #advertising #latergram #marketing #shefancy

Been juggling business and house/studio organizing. in the midst of that, i had to get a new refurbished computer because my current one was so old that it couldn’t handle the latest update, was super slow, and files weren’t going to the cloud. 🤪 in preparation for the computer, i cleared everything off of the desk, shelves, and bulletin board, just keeping a few things out. it all went into bags that i can unpack, sort, and hopefully get rid of things! i love it really clear. i can think so much better when there is not “stuff” chaos! 😊i have been working on the pants pattern and it is almost there! i was working on them today and just around lunchtime, my neighbor called me to give me this fabulous noodle dish! love my neighbors! do you have nice neighbors? #italianwoman #losangeles #sanfrancisco #california #houston #chicago #nyc #boston #toronto #melbourne #brisbane #dreambig #believeinyourself #getoutsideyourcomfortzone #motivation #wheelchair #wheelchairmodel #wheelchairwoman #wheelchairfashion #wheelchairlifeandstyle #adaptiveclothing #adaptiveskirts #adaptive #nevergiveuponyourdreams #paraplegic #quadraplegic #spinalcordinjury #spinabifida #cerebralpalsy #believe

Thank you so much to everyone who purchased during our annual holiday sale. there are many of you who are going to be getting your braces in the mail this week, and using them for the first time. we wanted to share this tip with you so you can hit the ground running when they arrive. in this video our little friend rotem is doing an amazing job crawling, climbing, and bridging from one place to another. as you look at her brace, you can see that it’s flexible enough that it bends and moves with her through different postures, but when she stops for a minute, or takes a break, you can see that her arm tends towards extension when her arm would typically tend toward flexion. with her elbow realigned in the correct position, each crawl, climb, and bridge is another repetition for her shoulder and trunk muscles, helping them to become stronger so that bracing doesn’t need to be a life long event. .

ครั้งแรกกับการเข็นรถ 3 กิโลของ chongkhorun 2019 เมื่อวันอาทิตย์​ที่ผ่านมาจบไปได้ด้วยดี, สำหรับคนเดินได้คงไม่คิดว่ามันจะยากตรงไหนวิ่งไปเรื่อยๆสลับเดินบ้างเดี๋ยว​ก็จบ แต่สำหรับอิฉันคือสาหัสนะคะบอกเลย ต้องใช้แรงแขนล้วนบวกกับถนนปลวกๆของบ้านเราเท่ากับว่านี่มันภารกิจฆ่าตัวตายชัดๆ 😅 แต่ทุกอย่างย่อมมีอุปสรรค​ด้วยกันทั้งนั้น ตอนตัดสินใจสมัครนี่ถามตัวเองย้ำแล้วย้ำอีกจะรอดมั้ยตรู แต่ถ้าไม่ลองก็คงไม่รู้ ทั้งหมดทั้งมวนก็ขึ้นอยู่กับสภาพจิตใจล้วนๆว่าจะบอกตัวเองยังงัย เห้ยไม่เอาดีกว่าทำไม่ได้แน่ๆ หรือเอาวะจัดกันสักตั้งให้มันรู้กันเลย ในท้ายที่สุดก็เข็นเข้าเส้นชัยจนได้แบบหอบๆ😁 ถึงแม้จะใช้เวลานานกว่าชาวบ้านเค้าก็เหอะ อต่ในเมื่อเราทุกคนต่างมีจุดปล่อยตัวที่ต่างกัน เช่นเดียวกับเวลาในการถึงที่หมายจะเร็วหรือช้าก็ไม่ใช่การวัดความสำเร็จ ในมุมมองของอิฉัน สิ่งที่สำคัญมันคือการพาตัวเราเองไปให้ถึงปลายทางมากกว่า 😉 สุดท้ายขอบคุณน้องสาวที่ไปเป็นเพื่อน เพราะถ้างัดน้องให้ตื่นขึ้นมาตอนตี 4 ไม่ได้ พี่คงไปไม่ถึง 😂

There are a lot of significant dates in my life but this man, joey calogero, was there for and witnessed firsthand the day that i nearly lost my life and that completely changed everything for me forever.

he didn't actually just witness it, after suffering my spinal cord injury and lying limp and helpless in the water, joey was the one who realized something was drastically wrong and pulled my motionless body out of the water and up onto the beach. if not for him seeing me and taking action quickly, i very well would have drowned and lost my life on that day.

while having him strapped into the chair for our chat, joey and i acknowledge that we've never had a complete and thorough talk about his perspective of that day and what kind of impact it had on his life. during our sit down, joey presents me with the actual skim board from the day of my accident, we go over what exactly he remembers, how that experience paved his way to becoming a firefighter and ultimately how those events have impacted his life and shaped his current perspective.

i hope hearing our story and the growth that we both have achieved since that traumatic day on december 16th, 2008 will touch and impact your lives and hopefully inspire you to alter your perspective on everything around you!!

tune into ‘cruiseybabbby enterprises’ or ‘paralyze this’ on youtube every tuesday at 6pm for a new interview!
