Things I covet: Neuron plushies

1 Comment

Illness sucks. There ain’t too much more to say about it than that.

I have spent time working with people with chronic illness, especially neurologically-based illnesses, and I have seen both how much people can struggle and how much they can overcome when living with brains that don’t behave the way they are supposed to. I am always so inspired by those who can manage to fight or live through or even slowly recover from neurological illness with grace and a sense of humour. Case in point: Pay Mayer of Neuron Rebellion.

While undergoing treatment for a bizarre movement disorder, Pat found herself virtually bedridden. To pass the time, she began sewing these whacky little creatures by hand — representations of her own “rebellious neurons.” And then she made more. And more. And they are wonderful.

So be inspired and be in awe, friends, for there are a veritable ton of these little guys for sale on Pat’s website now.
