My first thought was I'd fly to
The answer I came up with is a simple one. I would spend the day taking care of myself. I'd do all the things an able-bodied person takes for granted. I'd get up in the morning, get dressed and get myself to the bathroom. I'd spend my day free of caregivers.
I have to plan everything. I go out when I have a caregiver to drive me. I am lucky I don't have to rely on public transportation because, as I may have mentioned in a previous post, transportation for the disabled has to be arranged several days in advance. It is also not dependable.
In order to stay alone for short periods of time, I even have to plan when I go to the bathroom. I am sure not many able-bodied people have had to do that.
Tomorrow morning, when you are getting dressed, stop for a moment and remember how fortunate you are not to have to rely on others to assist you. Don't take the little things for granted. Circumstances can change in the blink of an eye. Be thankful and grateful for the life you have. Even the struggles. I know I am.
