I apologize for doing a way back Wednesday post, however, I had a car accident last week and am suffering from whipash that is very painful and am unable to sit for very long. No worries though, I have plenty to write about as soon as I can sit down to write! For now, wnjoy some oldies but goodies and talk among yourselves!
When you have a physical limitation or disability it can really, well… stink to miss out on certain things in life. Everything I do has to be planned out. If I am going out for an afternoon I have to be sure to have my medication and my seat cushion. I need to know how long I will be in the car and how long I will be walking, sitting and standing. The unfortunate truth is that disability can sometimes mean that you have to forgo things in life that you really want to do. From the minor things, like a day trip to the city, going shopping or vacations, to the major things, like having a family or a career.
So how do you deal with the letdowns? How do you stop fearing that life is passing you by while others live it? I wish I had an answer, but truthfully, living with a disability makes me sad because there are many times I feel like I have gone AWOL on my own life.
