Happy New Year!: A Reflection on 2021

Happy new year beautiful people! Many are welcoming in 2022 celebrating with their friends and family. As for me, I am setting in my room watching a New Year’s Eve Celebration in Nashville, Tennessee on television. However, I am still celebrating. I am celebrating another year on Earth and celebrating a year closer to graduating college. While celebrating, I am also reflecting on many things that I am thankful for in 2021.

In 2021, many things happened. I am thankful for the new friends I have made, especially at college. In 2019, when I started college, I met some great people, but I wasn’t close to very many people. Then, in 2020, Covid happened and college was virtual. Even when we came back in person, I didn’t stay on campus very much, so I didn’t grow close with many people. However, this year I have become closer with so many amazing humans! People that authentically want to be friends, which can be hard to find sometimes. They don’t think twice about helping me when I need it!

I have also started my Spinraza injection therapy (You can see more about that on my YouTube channel, Caden Nelms). I was the first person on Georgia Medicaid to get approved for Spinraza! That’s crazy for me to think about. Also, I just finished my last loading dose injection yesterday, December 30th. Now, I will have three maintenance doses throughout 2022. I cannot wait to see what 2022 holds in terms of my disability, strength and the progress of Spinraza.

Next, I would like to reflect and thank everyone for reading, viewing, liking and sharing my content this year! I can’t thank everyone enough! From people who interact with me through TikTok, through Rolling Through Life Podcast, through these blog posts, through my Instagram or through my Twitter, I thank you SO MUCH! I cannot wait to see what 2022 holds for me and my effort to spread disability awareness and content.


I hope everyone has a Happy New Year and a great, safe 2022!!

Love you all beautiful humans!
