I am starting to come to terms with my new life on wheels. A life with less pain and more mobility is so much better then what i have been living with, these last few months especially. Today I was able to roll over and pick up my daughter when she cried, no more can someone bring me the baby please, no sir I can get her myself and it is indeed a good day .. I am able to play with my toddler too and now I can do it without running out of energy! I am now able to go for a walk/roll with my teens and tween when they really want to show me something without having to think twice about the pain I would be in if had walked there.
Life is not perfect but it is good and I am content. I am thankful for this new mobility even if it does have its drawbacks. The electric wheelchair will be ready next week that will make it much easier I can not wait until it arrives .... VROOMM VROOM look out world here i come.
While I still haven't come to terms with my disease I have come to terms that I can and should control the amout of pain I am in because of it. I owe it to myself and my family. Yes today was a good day I am refreshingly exhausted and not from pain for once but from having gone outside for the first time in months and even without it being to see a doctor (shock) just a "roll" out in the fresh air with my family. I will sleep well tonight knowing I am no longer a prosioner up here on my fourth floor flat. Goodbye rapunzel. Hello motorized mama!
