WARNING: Parts of this post may sound like a pity-fest, especially to any new readers. But it isn’t. It’s more a statement of facts and our lives and how we live them. We’re good people, it’s just that our disabilities kind mean we have to live ‘in the moment’.
So, 2014 is here. *looks around* Fresh start? Clean slate? New beginning?
Not for us. It means carrying on with life, dealing with illnesses, disabilities and pain and always doing the best we can. We’re still crazy in love after 11+ years together. It’s just that our bodies are well, not quite what they used to be [understatement alert] and that, to say the least, cramps our style and abilities somewhat.
We don’t get out much. We purchased a brand new car 12 months ago – it now has a smidgin over 3,000 miles on the clock (the dealer barely had to do anything at its annual service recently). But one of our major wishes this year is to find a way to actually meet some of you in person. Don’t quite know how we’ll manage the logistics of that yet, but we’re bloody well going to try!
So for us, 2014 will be a continuation of the daily battle. But you know what? We’re happy. Very happy. Of course we wish that some things could be different, but we are, despite everything, happy with our lives.
We hope you are all able to say the same about yours.
Happy New Year.
