I’m allowed to cry– that’s what I keep learning
It’s 1 : 20 PM on day 763 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to stretch my hamstrings, brush my teeth, publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself an avocado sandwich and banana for breakfast practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles and practice typing with both hands.
As you may know most days I’m all about gratitude and looking on the bright side sadly today is not of those days the guilt I feel over the attention I take away from my siblings coupled with the fact that I need help to do most things that other people take for granted got to me and I just started balling thinking this is just too hard I don’t want to be this way sometimes I don’t want to ask could you help me get out of bed I just want to get up and get out of bed in one swift motion like everybody else does the fact that I can’t makes me so frustrated I wish everybody could spend one day in my body they would have a newfound appreciation for all that they can do. Do you allow yourself to cry when it all gets to be a little too much?
I LOVE hearing from you feel free to leave a comment below.
