I did nothing, I didn’t murder anyone, I didn’t have a car accident, I didn’t get shot with a bullet, I didn’t have a diving accident, I didn’t fall off a horse, I did nothing but I got a life sentence. 😢
It’s been FIVE (5) YEARS since that fateful day in June 2016 when surgery gone wrong left me #paralyzed from the waist down, forever sentenced to life in a #wheelchair 👩🦽 Most days I wonder if I’ll ever get past it, if I’ll ever accept it, if I’ll ever adjust to it, if I’ll ever be okay with it. I don’t know how to get past it, I don’t know how to accept it, I don’t know how to adjust to it, I don’t know how to be okay with it!
How do I possibly begin to get past it, accept it, adjust to it, be okay with it when life continuously reminds me of what I can no longer do, what I can no longer look forward to. I’m like the person sentenced to a life sentence in prison, never able to hug their family members, never able to walk/run and play with their children/grandchildren, miss important family gatherings (for me, many facilities are not wheelchair friendly and/or do not have family restrooms), etc., etc. If that is bad enough, I’m reminded every time my wheelchair gets sent out for repairs and I’m stuck in a manual wheelchair, for 2 months, that I am not able to maneuver myself because as a #little_person (a.k.a. #dwarf) I’m unable to reach the wheels to move myself.
I’m just tired…tired of pretending life is still good, it isn’t, tired of pretending to be happy, I’m not. For those that have been following me on this journey and may have wondered if I was doing anything about the surgery gone wrong, YES, I’m suing, I’m suing the hospital and the doctors/surgeons involved. I’m tired of waiting FIVE (5) YEARS for this case to be heard, to be resolved! Having these cases drag on for years and years should be a CRIME! How dare they make us (the victims) suffer even worse.
As always, I wish you a journey filled with exploring new people, places and things – take time to learn from and enjoy each new adventure along your way!
