very heavy

I have lackings.

Now, I’m not saying that so people will be all complimentary and reassuing.

Although, if you want to mention bouncy hair I won’t kick you.

But, I do have those moment when I feel the shortcoming.

The shoes I can’t wear.

The shelves I can’t reach.

The jars I can’t open.

When I get stuck.

Learning to ask for help.

The things I can’t DO.

Sometimes it’s the weight of what I DO have to do.

Some days it feels VERY HEAVY.

    If you weren’t using it I would shave all your hair off and make it into a wig.

    Ps. Why can’t you wear shoes? You should be able to wear the most kick-ass stilettos ever since you’re in a wheelchair and you don’t have to stand in them all day. I thought that was the whole point of wheelchairs.

    PPS. Victor says I know nothing about wheelchairs.

    I think you’ve got a point – it does suck. I’m sorry things are so hard for you. I hope they get a bit easier someday. In the meantime, you do seem to do a great job of getting on with it and making the best of a sucky situation. Props to you!

    Oh, girl…but what you HAVE done.
    It’s inspiring. You’re amazing.
    And, you’ve got a nice rack. You’ve got me beat there….

    I’m amazed at all you do. And I didn’t even see half of what goes on in your life on a regular basis. Just getting up & taking on the world every day exhausts me sometimes & I’m not even in a wheelchair. The spirit within you is hard to miss. So are your exquisite breasts. They’re hard to miss too. xoxo

    *hugs* It’s always hard to learn to ask for help when you are used to be a strong, independent person who does it all, all the time.

    Your hair rocks. Mine is gray and dry and not shiny or bouncy. You beat me in hair. And boobs.

    Sorry about the heavy moments.

    But your delicate and delicious writing is not one of them. No stuck things there. I love how you take a thought and give it such startling clarity.

    Much in awe. More please.

      ‘Catch the Kids’, your comment says it all!

      Anissa, I am in awe of how you say so much with so little. You have helped me to see and understand so many things. There is an entire background story behind those words … you simply can’t know how much you have ‘spoke’ to me in this blog. I thank you.

      I do hope that your load is lessened a small amount by ‘sharing’ it here.

    I hear Ryan Reynolds thinks your hair is very bouncy.

    Some days may be heavy but you are amazing. Oh, by the way, your hair is looking wonderfully bouncy today.
