It’s Hard

When you have a broken shoulder, you get to:

– ask other people to tie your shoelaces
– have a fabulous bruise, including most of the colours of the rainbow
– dread going to the toilet (you can work that one out …)
– look pitiable and brave at the same time
– have adventures-in-turning-over in the middle of the night
– watch other people carrying heavy stuff, without feeling guilty
– get stuck lying on the floor
– ask nice strangers outside Sainsbury’s to help you put your shirt on
– wear shorts in the shower (to retain dignity in case of emergency)
– smell (more than normal)
– find alternative means of hugging
– feel a great sense of achievement after dressing yourself
– have a decent excuse for pretty much anything you don’t feel like doing

amongst many others …
