Back to Jail with Ketchup…puns…intended puns.
Out of jail for a while, but I went back. You can read all about that here “Out of Jail Thrift Store Hauls.”
Another blogger said one’s problems or ailments should never be aired. On the other hand, someone else said these things help people identify with you. If this is a rule, I’m breaking it, and baring all to you, my friends.
The short answer is, I broke another bone forcing me back to the chair for who knows how long. (which feels like being in jail). Have you ever spent 24/7 in a chair? I spent all Spring and Summer here, and now it looks like all Fall and Winter too. Ain’t no fun. I called myself being careful, but who plans to fall? “I think I’m going to fall today so I can break another bone.” No we don’t do that.
Thinking I pulled a muscle in my butt, I walked everywhere with a crutch, but it grew excruciatingly painful. One MRI later I’m back in the chair. I have a cracked tailbone and spinal stenosis among other things. Doc said it takes 12 weeks to heal. Internet says it takes 6-12 months! I’ve been so depressed, I haven’t read or commented on blogs nor written a post until now.
Osteoporosis has reared its ugly head, so I guess I’m playing “ketchup” with my age this year…not that I consider myself “old” yet, but everything hit me early. I lost my husband at a young age; I entered menopause at a young age, and now this.
So you may not see many posts on my projects or holiday decor. I might be able to do some, but not much. Just the facts friends.
I ordered my first wheelchair from Amazon. (First kiss, first date, first wheelchair…what a milestone!) Is there anything they don’t have?
Doc says he wants me in a wheelchair if I have much distance to walk. Wishing sometimes to go to the eternal home rather than go back to jail with ketchup, especially for so long. But maybe it won’t be so bad. My BFF says it will give me freedom and mobility. Yes I know I’m seeing the glass half empty.
