Fun fact about me: I was suppose to go on a road trip my senior year of high school, but I crashed the getaway car. I came out with a broken spine in 3 different places, broken ribs, cracked sternum, broken heel, and torn neck ligaments. Spoiler: I never got to do that road trip. Maybe I'll convince my roommate this summer, who coincidentally just slipped on ice this past Friday and broke her ankle. I'm currently her caretaker, which honestly has been fun, (It's only been 3 days, so it hasn't bugged me yet lol) but I understand her frustrations. In the meantime, I'm taking advantage of doing things for her, in exchange making her binge on Buffy. Who will get sick of the other more? Cast your votes now. Thankfully, she'll be up and walking for summer, which means her right foot can hit the skinny pedal and I can press play for the tunes.
Something we talked about during all of this, is the fear of being alone when your physically disabled. We're so grateful to have one another, but what if we lived alone, or our friends were unable to help, and then the drinks we cheered to our singlehood began to sour? We always give ourselves this mantra, women in particular, that you don't need someone, being single is great, you have your friends, etc., which is all true, until you have a broken ankle or spine and need help showering. It's in these fearful moments we realize, being physical with someone, also allows you to rely on that person when you're incapable of being physical. It's a crazy fear, and I'm not saying everyone needs to date someone, at least for the winter because of black ice, but I did start to plan in my head my call list, and how I would handle being disabled alone. Anyone else now thinking of their call list?
