Describe a typical day in your life — but do it in a form or in a medium you’ve rarely — if ever – used before. If you’re a photoblogger, write a poem. If you’re a poet, write an open letter. If you’re a travel blogger, write a rant. (These are all examples — choose whatever form you feel like trying out!)
Another Day in Paradise?
To those who go to school or work, be joyful. I used to look forward to the days I could go and volunteer at one of my favorite places and activities. For the last three years, I have existed in one hospital bed or another, either in a hospital, long care facility (nursing home) or at home.
My body hurts, sometimes screams in pain. It takes a couple of hours just to fill my medications for the next two weeks from the dozens of pill bottles I have.
I need surgeries to fix about a dozen things wrong, but the surgeries are risky than suffering through their consequences.
As the song says, “I haven’t seen a game all year”. I miss my grandsons T-ball games, concerts, etc… Haven’t been to a movie or anything fun in years. If I do get out its to the doctor, if I am out too long I am in severe pain for days.
The only place that is somewhat comfortable is my hospital bed, so here I exist and today rant.
You be happy go to the park, work or movies for me, enjoy life. Maybe soon, I will have a motorized chair and will be able to do more!
