A place to talk about NF, have fun and share.


images.jpegYou’ll never guess what happened to me today so I had better tell you. I went to my favorite Western store, Cavender’s. I was shopping for a buckle for my belt. I noticed someone in the store noticing me. He came over and spoke to me and asked how my day was going. I told him like I always say when asked. Terrific! with a smile.

After my purchase, I looked around for the gentlemen that I just spoken to. I saw him and he could see I wanted to talk to him. He came over. Because he was so nice to me, I couldn’t leave without letting him know how happy he made me feel. I explained to him about my disorder and my website. As I talked to him I could see his eyes filling with tears. He was a very big guy yet he was very sensitive to how I felt and what my life is like. He seemed very happy that I didn’t mind talking about what happened to me. I gave him one of my business cards. He said it was a good way for me to get the word out. He thanked me. I am the one who should be thanking him. I can say for sure I will shop at Cavender’s more often.

  2. Well I wasn’t able to get the bling bling buckle. The one I wanted was a little expensive for me right now. That was a real bling bling. I am going to get it, and I don’t care how much Lou have to pay. Right! lol

  7. I agree with you, Reggie, you have found your calling. I was watching your video on YouTube for like the 1,000th time and I still enjoy watching it. You make it easy for people to learn about your disorder but, more importantly, you make people WANT to learn about your disorder. Keep on doing whatever you’re doing because it’s working!
