Overcoming Technical Troubles: My Journey with Electronics and Adaptability

Greetings, friends,

I’m back with an update on the technical front, and as they say, it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster. Recently, I’ve been tackling some challenges with my main computer. & thought the issue was with the graphics card, but the complexity seems to have deepand. Living in Utah’s dry climate, static electricity is a persistent concern, especially with my wheelchair. Last year, this static fried my motherboard, and recently, it seemed to threaten my graphics card too. Thankfully, I received a replacement, but it looks like I’m not out of the woods yet.

Speaking of static issues, my wheelchair has unfortunately succumbed to the same fate. The simple act of discharging static by tapping the footplate to a metal object ended up frying the chair’s systems. While it still functions for basic mobility and hydraulics, navigating without the display and enduring the constant beeping is a challenge in itself.

On a brighter note, I’ve set up a stations for building Legos, and it will record my hand actions. This isn’t just for fun- it’s a strategic move to improve my fine motor skills. There’s a small tweak here and there, and then I’ll be ready to start. Given the limited space in my apartment, I’m considering giving away the finished Lege sets. It’s all about adapting and making the most out of every situation, right? As Rocky Balboa once said, “It’s not about how hard you can hit, but it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward…”

Stay tuned for more updates, and remember, every challenge is an opportunity in disguise. Change your perspective!
