I have taken my mobility for granted, not having any problems moving about for the last 50 years but now, I find myself in unfamiliar territory. I am partly physically handicapped. Many times this can be frustrating. Emotionally, I am also feeling much more helpless now and would have to depend on people around me to get certain work done. Although a few of my friends have offered to fetch me around, I find that a bit troublesome for them. Anyway, I am able to drive short distance without too much pain and if I need to go out a little longer, I will have to take the pain killer. Previously I also go out to meet a lot more people but now, I rather stay home not just because of the pain but also not to hurt myself (such a falling down) while out there. I have spoken to a few other cancer patients who have mobility problems and now I can understand better what they are going through.
You would also have noticed that I am now updating my blog later in the day and sometimes in the middle of the night, list this post. Earlier the day, I fell asleep around 6pm (not that I intended but I was just tired) and after that I am unable to sleep even at 2am. Possibly I will have to wait for 3am or 4am before I can fall asleep. So I spent some of the sleepless night updating my blog and also doing some reading.
