VOCSN makes it much easier for people to focus on me as a person rather than all of the equipment it takes to keep me alive and moving from place to place, which is what I love most about it.
Loa’s BlogOn the Outside Looking In
Typically, when one hears the expression "on the outside looking in" it is with a negative connotation, implying that someone is being excluded, or shut away from the action. My life has often put me in situations where I am on the inside looking out. I do not get out of my bed every day and my difficulty maintaining my body temperature means I often choose to remain indoors when the weather is less than delightful. Ergo, I am on the inside looking out. Sharing this is not a bid for sympathy, but merely a point of reference for the recent experience I had being on the outside looking in.
