So I’m finally starting to accept that the cane is very beneficial and I should start using it.. despite the reactions that I will get from others. That took a long time to adjust to and accept. It seems this whole RP thing is full of adjustments when you don’t necessarily need or want them.
I’m still working on accepting the fact that I shouldn’t be driving now and probably never should drive. That’s just so HUGE. It’s like saying “byebye” to your independence when I know there are tons of people out there who are less able to drive than me, but still do. It’s the right decision, I’m sure of that, but it still sucks. I can’t go out with friends on a whim, go to the mall, go to the grocery store. I used to dream of going to the grocery store to pick up food for my Dad for some reason. It was just a “big girl” thing and even though I’m 22 years old, I still can’t do that “big girl” thing. Oi.
