It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Bad wheelchair news

So I get a call this morning from the company that handles durable medical equipment for medicaid. Will I be home to accept delivery of a wheelchair today?

Well, sure I will.. that's my power chair, right?

No ma'am, that's a regular wheelchair.

Um, that's not what was ordered, and I _have_ a manual chair. Which I can't really use without assistance. Due to the severe arthritis in my shoulders, elbows, and wrists.

Now it's going to take weeks for them to rescind that order and months more for me to get a new chair.

Meanwhile, I'm stuck in the FUCKING HOUSE for all this time.

Not to mention I'll need somebody to PUSH ME DOWN THE FUCKING AISLE when Sam and I do the wedding.

I fucking give up. I'm not meant to have any damn degree of independence.

Borderline symptom of the day: pissed offupset

Have the boys push you. Make it look like that was how you'd planned it.

I'm sorry. :(

I was going to suggest reassigning the Maid of honor to this, one of elfi's chilluns would work. That whole "giving away" thing.

Use it as a way for the kids to be more involved in the wedding. Maybe colored streamers on the chair, and Amy could push you down the aisle - don't let it ruin this big day for you.


i'm sorry :(

isn't that just *typical*!?

THEY mess it up, and YOU are punished for it. i HATE the way stuff works around here anymore...

good luck with the wedding - is it possible to *rent* a power chair for 1 day?
