He is seen in a wheelchair, then he isn’t. He is seen using a walker, but not all the time.
Such inconsistency! Which is it ?
Recognizing my discrepancies, I ask myself if folks don’t sometimes wonder. Is this guy faking it, or what ? Maybe I have some “splainin'” to do.
Well, let me tell you what you’re looking at.
I know. I know. I don’t have to explain anything if I don’t want to, but I want to ! I must look like I’m sending mixed messages. You’re either in a wheelchair or you’re not, right ?
What you are looking at is someone who is , ever so slowly, losing his grip on the everyday things that he used to do — everyday. I can walk, but barely. I can keep my balance, but barely. I can work – this really hurts – but barely.
Shame on me. How I took my everyday capabilities for granted. I miss them, now that they are seriously waning.
It is a life lesson, this fickle disease. Be thankful everyday. The everyday may not always be there.
