The mental toll of a broken limb

Friday, March 20, 2015

Last night/this morning I just had enough of this broken arm. 2 weeks into wearing a sling and not using my arm I reached a low. I hate sweat pants! They make me feel like I've given up on life unless I am in them to exercise. Usually I don't even wear them to exercise because I don't like getting that hot. I would love to wear dresses every day instead, but I can because I am in the lab with my job and your legs have to be covered. I only have 1 long dress and the top part is not job appropriate. Then there is my hair. My hair is almost all the way down my back. I have blow dried it 2 times in the past 2 weeks and that was a chore 1 handed. It didn't even change the after lookj very much from what it looks air dried. It's a hot mess. My husband is zero help with it. I finally bought a clip so I can put it up with 1 hand. But now it just looks like a hot mess ontop of my head. I hate not taking pride in my inner and outer self. I don't even care what other people think, this is 100% how I feel.

So this morning I am not in a good place. However, it is Ostara and I am determined to turn my mood around. The blessings of new life are upon us. We have passed through the long dark night and cold winter. This too shall pass. I am half way through being done with my sling. Downhill from here.

    Blessed Ostara, WhichWitch! I am thankful for work purposes my left arm is the one broken and I am right handed. I am already not able to do a lot of my job with 1 hand. The pants is the worst! That is what brought me to this point yesterday. My left side of pants kept rolling when I tried to pull them up. It took such a struggle to get it right. I am not friendly with anyone enough at work to ask for help either, so I just kept struggling. My mom Rick Rolled me this morning to cheer me up. lol I need some music in my day, definitely. We will heal soon! After all Ostara brings new life. Blessed Be!

    I have a broken wrist...fell on the ice on March 1st. Of course it's my right wrist and I'm right handed. You are SOOO right about being fed up with this. One of the worst parts is trying to pull my pants up! Seems to take me twice as long to get done in the bathroom just because of that! Thankfully I have short hair so it doesn't really matter what I d wit that. I have been singing the song "I am Woman, Hear me Roar" a lot! Hope we are both better soon! Have a Blessed Ostara! Wish I could feel more Spring-like, but it's snowing here.
