Sick?

5 May

Its funny how life comes along when you think you are already too sick to do things, and whacks you right on the arse.

“I’m too sick to ride a horse.”
No I’m not. I’m just too aware of the consequences I will face afterwards, and possibly during.

Well perspective ducked his head in and realised I wasn’t living my life to my fullest potential.
I went into the hospital unable to keep hydrated, and I had a head nurse who decided I was not worthy of a doctor’s visit. That would surely be a waste of the doctor’s time, even though they are in the hospital.
She refried my kidneys and put me in a serious, avoidable condition.

And I remembered what being sick really means.

Its not about the days you go around the house slowly, struggling to get a chore done.
Being sick is not being able to clean your own bum, nor crawl to the toilet.
Its being told the plane is on its way to pick you up, take you to a better hospital with more knowledgeable doctors.
Its being told your bowel might have to be removed.

That medication list you just got used to? Scrap it. Here’s a new one, with a bonus 6 new medications!

I will come back from this. I always bounce back, and the bruises usually heal well enough to keep on truckin’.

      Thanks for reading and caring 🙂 I’ve come to the realistion that I don’t have to write a novel just to write a blog post, and it doesn’t have to be perfect, either 🙂

        Nope 😊 I find myself writing a novel sometimes too, but I find more people the short and sweet ones!
