Some people just don’t get it!!

I’m pissed! I’m getting my last steroid infusion, and I’m am sitting next to someone who says that everyone who can walk shouldn’t abuse the handicap spots? Seriously!? I have a handicap placard because I have Multiple Sclerosis. Some days I walk better than others. He said people who are able to walk don’t have a right to the spots and just use their grandfather’s placard 😡😡😡

Today, I’m supposed to be non-weight bearing on my left foot because of my laceration. I have a podiatry appt tomorrow morning, but screw it I walked in with my cane and was parked so far away the from handicap spots. And I didn’t complain!!!

I don’t like judging people, so who are you to judge me for my “invisible” disability? Which isn’t invisible really. Would you rather see me in a wheelchair and then I can have your approval for my handicap spot, even though I didn’t even use one today.

Or you know what?
I’ll trade my disease with you any day so then you can have my handicap spot.
Let’s see how you feel after walking in my shoes!

Thanks steroids for adding fuel to my flame. I get riled up on steroids sometimes, Ugh.
*rant over*

I am apparently VERY clumsy! LOL

So I shared with you all a that I fell and sliced my toe open last night. Well, it won’t stop bleeding. So, Went to urgent care and I can’t put weight on the foot and I have to elevate it until I can see a podiatrist. I’m trying to use crutches but can’t because my balance on crutches sucks (think another fall will happen) so I have to use a walker for now. Ugh! 

Why am I so clumsy!!!


 I am going up the garage steps and my left leg decides not play along.  I catch myself and say “ow, my toe.  At least I didn’t totally fall!”

So I try waking on it and it’s not having it. I  look down and suddenly I see my foot in a pool of blood.  So I assess the situation while trying to cut down on my blood clean up. (Yes, you parents undertande that one LOL)
So what do I do? I get to a bathroom hobbling and wondering how to yell for help… at 1am!

Well I find my wound kit. (Again parents?) I pull out my saline wash, steri strips, and I’m gonna make it work. I hope I won’t need stitches. It’s not pretty but it’ll do for the night.
