That is the saying right? ” Can’t keep a good woman down”
Yeah well, a fall down the stairs and a Doctor who says ” if you do not stay off your foot, you will regret the long term effects” can certainly keep a good woman down, down but, not out.
I had to cancel 3 weeks worth of work and a feature dancing gig
I was really looking forward to. This is all bumming me out.
Forced time off is what I am calling this misfortune. Yup that and a wonderful opportunity to find out who is your true friend. Nothing like an injury to define a relationship. Once you get over feeling sorry for yourself you can see all of the wonderful benefits to being an injured person.
Like for instance, if I were to travel, I could get carted around in those
airport golf carts that produce such a lovely lyrical sound and somehow always manage to creep up behind me and scare the holy crap outta me.
There is a version of an automatic wheelchair at the grocery store which makes shopping I suppose less challenging? Not so sure about that one
Another fine advantage to being temporally disabled is everyone is nice to you and offers assistance no matter what you are doing, my advice is to take the help- all of it. I have always thought I was some sort of super woman, indestructible, invincible, Teflon coated and special. Truth is I am human, I am flawed and clumsy, I am me, and I would not have come to the awesomeness that is me with out all of the help I have humbly
accepted in the past.
If it takes a fall down for me to realize this and stand up taller, stronger
and better I’ll take that too
