Recently, I did go to a restaurant this past week without someone there to open the door for me (something that I never do anymore honestly) and it was just anxiety all over again because I struggled SO BAD opening the door and I was grateful all over again for automatic door openers.

In my head I was like “OK we’re never doing this again by ourselves” and something as simple as not having door openers stops me from ever wanting to go do things by myself. But like it just hit me all over again how something so small IS making a difference, and it’s a big difference.

I was grateful for portal. But I don’t know a good way to communicate that to someone like a VP of an University. With it getting more and more difficult for me to do things like open doors on my own, I’m always looking for shortcuts and ways to make things easier for me that I used to do for myself more easily.
