UGH. . .sometimes I just want to scream😱 😱 !!!!! I heard the mailman 👮 come deliver the mail ✉️, my mind says go get the mail, ugh, my body says you can’t (I can’t get get out my front door in my #wheelchair🦽 without assistance). I ordered a few items for an upcoming event (BIG NEWS COMING) that I am so excited about but that excitement gets diminished with each passing minute, as each minute turns into a half hour as I wait for the mail and packages to be brought inside. My Aunt and cousin are at my parents house to visit my Mother and help her do a few things (that she struggles with and I can’t do for her or even help her with), my mind says jump in the car🚘 and go over (since my parents only live like 2 miles from me), my body says you can not, (#paralysis took my driving capability). EVERYDAY when It gets to be noontime, my mind says it’s time to walk the dog 🐕, oh yeah, my body reminds me I can’t, only this time our poor dog needs to wait too. And as it is also noon, I’m a little hungry, maybe I’ll have something to eat but once again I’m reminded I can’t, I have to wait (sometimes I wait until 2:30/3:00pm, now I am not going to be hungry for dinner) for my meals like a puppy dog. Sadly as a #little_person I no longer can reach anything in my kitchen that I was TOTALY capable of reaching before #surgerygonewrong 😠 left me #paralyzed that fateful day in 2016.
HELP HELP HELP, I am tired of my mind saying one thing and my body saying another! How does one or does one ever really accept a new lifestyle that they didn’t ask for? This new lifestyle is hard, it’s difficult, it’s challenging, it’s tiering and it’s sad.
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!
