1. Run up and down the stairs
The fact that it takes me a whole minute to get upstairs or downstairs is annoying. I have to actually step on each and every single stair while hanging on for dear life via the handrail. On a positive note, I’m finally able to go up and down the stairs, which means I can sleep in my room again.
2. Walk comfortably without this back brace
I’m getting really sick and tired of walking like a zombie. It was a funny joke around Halloween, but it’s been a week since then and I’m not laughing any more.
3. Drive my car to Walmart or Target
Shopping online is great, but nothing beats the clearance at Target. I can’t believe I missed all the Halloween clearance this year! : (
4. Bend over to pick up something
Although my toes are getting stronger, I’d prefer not to have toe muscles. I’ve been picking up many things with my feet lately, but it would be really nice just to bend over…
5. Sit on the toilet without any assistance
I don’t even want to elaborate on this one.
While this may have been written in a somewhat comedic manner, I’m actually really sad most of the time. I feel purposeless and useless. I can count the number of times I cry each day on one hand still, so until I can’t, I’ll try not to worry too much. I just hope I get over this handicap before I delve into a deep depression. Pray for me and I’ll do the same.
