You all have been so supportive of me. I think that's better than having library access. I feel accepted, and it feels so good to have a community of people who understand why things like this matter. I used to hide feeling happy about things like this because I was sure someone would laugh or ridicule me for sharing my feelings about being more independent. Your replies to my message were so affirming, and I don't know how to fully express the healing warmth that I felt while reading them. Elizabeth, what you said was especially healing to me because it was the truth and seemed so clear. I just wanted you and the others on the list to know that I am thankful for you and this community in my life.

Monica, It sure seems like a big thing to me and how exciting for you!

I'm feeling so excited and independent today. I've just finished making arrangements to start getting library books to scan that will be delivered to my local branch where my dad and I can pick them up every two weeks. They've got so many books I've wanted to scan and read for ages, and now I can get to them! I know it's a little thing. It seems like a big one to me anyhow. (smile) I live in an area where there is no public transportation, and our library system used to charge a fee if you wanted a book from another branch. Now it's free and can be done online. They've even built a site that's completely accessible now with text labels on the buttons and alt tags on their images. I'm having a very good day!
