New Mobility Aid Blues
This latest tool in my Friedreich’s Ataxia mobility aid arsenal has me feeling blue.
I have had a handful of minor falls getting out of bed lately, so my wonderfully supportive and handy husband installed this grab rail for me.
While I’m thankful for the safety that it provides, I resent it. I resent that I need it. I resent that I have two ever-present and necessary mobility aids in my bedroom now. I resent that my serene and happy bedroom looks more like a hospital room now.
Yet, as the print on my wall says, “There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy.”
I will try to focus on those. I will try to adapt with grit & grace once again.
