I Don’t Want To Be Pitied…I’m Still Me!
Posted On May/2017
Today starts the beginning of my fourth week back to work……amazing how fast the weeks fly by. I’ve been working part time and was still able to land a decent account that the office has been trying to get for years and yet somehow, I did it! The owner of the business that I was working with had a stroke 2 years ago. She is only a couple of years older than me yet her life has been changed forever too.
I am doing well at work, although I get very tired. Dr. Patterson extended my part time hours until June 26th due to my fatigue. It didn’t help that I took a bad fall while working out with my trainer at the gym last Monday night. I was doing lunges while holding on and then, out of nowhere, my leg gave out. I think it hurt more mentally than physically; landing that account certainly was a boost.
I sometimes feel that my co-workers get uncomfortable around me. Especially when they hear me scheduling a scan or see me wincing in pain when I walk.
I don’t want to be pitied…I just want to be well…I’m still me!
