Just a 'Get Over It' Rant to meself.

Post by Paddy on Tue Mar 08, 2011 7:21 am

Sigh. It has been a long week, it has here in PaddyLand.

Today, I was up, outta bed by 5.45. PM. Yeah, the Afternoon one. If Iíd had a catheter, Iíd still be in bed.

In the last five weeks, Iíve been really pushing myself physically, finding out how far I push myself despite a few skeletal problems and associated discomfort, ya know? Iím certain a chunk of the extremeness of my stupidity is my mental health madness(ess), but I have to accept that they are there no matter what I do Ė or donít do.

This week though, Iím moving kinda slow, having to use my crutches even inside my little flat (which makes coffee carrying a messy proposition, take my word for it.) and the act of getting out of bed hurts, ya know. It really takes some doing, doh. Iím thinking about potential discomfort before I do anything, damnit and if anything that doesnít belong on the floor finds its silly-self there, well, tough. Yeah, I do have a pickyuppiestickythingy but its um, yeah. On the floor.

Common sense made me use my mobility scooter this evening to go to me supermarket.
Actually it wasnít commonsense, I had little option but to use it or stay home.
Tis the first time Iíve used it in two weeks, true. Iíve been walking everywhere. And back. I couldnít have left the property today without the scooter and I sure as hell couldnít have carried groceries. Yay for scooters! I suppose the fresh air was nice, but I bet it gives me Man Flu. And I have no chicken broth.

Meh. Stupid Body.

It just doesnít understand that I am NOT letting it win, which means Iíll bounce back and when me second wind comes along, Iíll just do all that stupid shit and more, all over again Ďcos I enjoy it.

This will probably sound silly enough to get me locked up again.

In the last few weeks, I have really, really enjoyed Ďbeing tallí again. When one sees the world and its horizons from the seat of an mobility scooter, or car or whatever, one isnít very tall, ya know? One is not really much taller than the littlest of the little old ladies out on their scooters. The last few weeks, some folk have noticed me standing, walking and commented on how tall I actually am. Its an odd feeling, being Ďrecognisedí for doing what the rest of them are doing, just not on sticks, lol. Hehe, there are a lot of short folk in my town, I hadnít noticed that so much before. Iím six feet two give or take a bend or two in me spine theses days.

And I forgot to buy Shortbread Ė damn!

Paddy.

PS. This is just a ĎGet it out and get rid of ití rant, so replies are not necessary thanks.

On your scooter please could you fly the Canterbury Colours. It would give your scooting more depth and meaning.

The Iroquois helicopters flying overhead to the Army Barracks is a horrible sound truly I never knew what they were doing until today.

I know you are thinking of us (your following) down in Christchurch Paddy.

PS I have a copy of Jo Seagars savoury mince. Its easy peasy Japanesey

Love Martinexx
