I am a rolling contradiction – that’s what I learned today
It’s 5 : 02 PM on day 605 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast, drink Green Tea by myself, publish my Disability of the Day feature, read and comment on I am Disabled: I Suck at Driving on Whispers of a Barefoot Medical Student and What super powers did you want? #IAmDisabled on The unofficial blog of Stan Faryna - Thank you Mariechen and Stan for supporting my I Am Disabled Campaign - exercise my right hand – I cut a banana with my right hand (yay me) but still need more practice using the fork and knife together – prepare my Disability of the Day feature for tomorrow and feed myself Spaghetti Bolognaise for lunch.
Last night laying in bed I couldn’t reconcile in my own mind how on the one hand I was fiercely independent while on the other hand I was completely dependent a perfect example of this is how I raised money to build a well in Kenya while not even being able to take myself to the bathroom I guess I’ve just got to stop analyzing who I am and just be. Are you the sum total of things that contradict each other?
