...aka, the post about nothing in particular or "random me."
There has been a mish-mash of things over here that I really need to get off my chest. Not that I'm complaining, or whining or pity seeking. It's just stuff that is not really related to anything but is getting on my nerves every.single.day.
The moral of the story, in case you want to bail out now, is that a knee was never intended to be a foot.
My BFF(aka; my prosthesis) and I have been having major problems. It all started last November when she decided not to co-operate with me and our holiday plans leaving me home alone on Thanksgiving while the rest of the family was at Grandmas house eating turkey and pumpkin pie. And just in case you are wondering, NO, not one single person could come down here (a whole 12 miles) and pick me up.
Things settled down for awhile after that and we made it through the rest of the year with just some minor problems. Then a few weeks ago things just blew the hell up and we are no longer on speaking terms. Granted, I do need her to help me get through the day but things will never be the same between us.
Broken locks leading to broken legs and a foot that doesn't work. Broken skin and worn out hardware, not to mention the weekly trips to the doctor (for which I need a ride). Then last week to add insult to injury she went one way while I went the other resulting in bruising and a 'slash' across the short leg that looks like, well...like chopped beef. (sorry).
There is nothing that can bring us back together at this point. She's gone her way and I've gone mine...all the way to the prosthetist to get a new leg/foot combo, which is another six weeks of my life that will be spent 'grounded.'
Life with a prosthesis is never dull.
