Its more than good to see you here and posting again Chutz!
This question or at least the thought hit me this last week. I finally got my numbered parking stall at work, and while I was visiting with a friend about
it who also has a numbered stall….he said "you know your registration that the tag office gave you says permanently disabled don't you?" …and I said I didn't know that!…..and took a quick peek at it!….sure enough!…there it was in big bold letters "Permanently Disabled"
That really struck me, as I hadn't thought much about
…and really consider myself more handicapped if anything. It was kind of a quick blast of reality for me….and yet felt odd, because I still work a full time job…or at least try.
This weekend a friend and I went to pick up a dog run….and I had just taken my morning pain med….and the edge was off the pain…..so stupid me I picked up two of the heaviest panels and stacked them on the trailer….all the while thinking this might not be a good idea. Four hours later, I was right…back pain really kicked up, and I was done for the day…and here I am laying in bed as usual….thinking the pain pump process sure is taking a long time getting here and going.
So while I clicked on the handicapped button above…I really feel disabled….just shot!…not really able to do much of anything. At this point in my life, I can walk….well shoot!…thats about
it,….cannot do much of anything else…..and I suppose while I do go to work…I'm not worth much of anything there either.
OK!…who's next here!
