On the bright side, there’s handicap parking…

by Cordless

The thing about having disability AND depression is…
When my body feels well enough to get out of bed, my mind often doesn’t.
And often when my mind is peaceful and content enough to get up and join the world, my body can hardly make it from one room to the other.

For the body, I have leg braces, canes, walker, wheelchair…
For the mind, I have music (performing & composing), reading, and art.

I’m single and I live alone; if i dont take care of myself, no one else does.

But it’s much easier said than done.

I feel you. I’m in a similar situation. It would be great if both body and mind were in the same time zone! Today I’m in a pretty good mood but I can’t seem to keep my eyes open. Pain is always there but some days I seem to handle it so much better than others.

Keeping eyes open… that’s definitely a struggle too!

I may not be able to relate on the physical side, but I can relate everywhere else. I might as well be socially disabled. I just need a pair of cat ears and a top hat and I’d be the Mad Catter. Miaow.

“Mad Catter”… I like that! 🙂
