I was just sitting today..... funny? not funny?
Either way, its true. I am sitting up in Estes Park this weekend, at Karla's house. Her house, for now, is easier and more home-like. I love my roommate and MY house but the driveway is steep and snow filled. The house does not feel like mine right now, Max is gone and it is not fully accessible so I feel a little uncomfortable there.
I need to do a little work in the shower, take off the glass shower door and hang a rod with a curtain. I also need to add a handle in the bath and swap the system over to a hand held (but hangable) nozzle.
Kitchen-wise, I am not sure yet. There were many things I wanted to do to the kitchen before this accident and I think they would still be advantageous and nice to do. I am sort of waiting to do anything much to this house though, as I feel if I do return to Estes Park I should probably move elsewhere. Somewhere a little more accessible in and out. My road being so ridiculously steep makes access most difficult in winter. Plus I am not quite sure what the shit I am doing on the job front.
I am quite confused by most days, do I start work again full force? Am I feeling like I need to because my brain works and I can't sit still? Should I be taking this time to focus REALLY freekin focus on rehab? How much? Am I crazy to put so much energy into my legs? How much energy is too much?
Cripes. I am tired just writing all that, good thing I am sitting. You should sit too :)
So that is most days currently. I live at a friends house in Denver and commute to Craig still. My car has been 'climbing rangered' out with a 2-1 pully system so I can pull and push my wheelchair in and out. I am still at Craig five days a week for a couple of hours doing PT and one-on-one sessions. I think it is good for my brain, but also good for the body and the healing. I may never walk again but if I don't try...they I certainly never will.
