The Time I Really Needed a Walmart Mobility Cart

 


I'm usually completely politically incorrect when I talk about the mobility scooter carts at Walmart. I refer to them as "handicapped carts." Well, today I was the unproud user of one of those "handicapped carts." I overestimated my healing process and thought it'd be okay if I walked to Walmart and got something I needed because I live right across the street. NOPE! It wasn't okay. No, ma'am, it wasn't okay at all. My chest started hurting, and I started sweating just from walking, lol. By the time I got halfway there, I wanted to turn around and go back home (or lie down right there), but I was already halfway there, so I pressed on.

The lady at the door helped get me a "handicapped cart," and I sincerely needed it and used it to make my purchase. 

It drives me crazy to be vulnerable and dependent. I am so used to being independent (because I'm forced to be), that it drives me nuts when I can't do stuff. I can't wait until I get better. I'm still happy I went through with the surgery, and I'm very happy with the results. I just have to get through the next six weeks of being... well... disabled. The good part is that these three angels helped me when I needed it the most. They got me home from the hospital and got me to my doctors' appointments. They even made me foods and made sure I ate well while I was recuperating. I wouldn't have eaten if I were left to my own devices, but I couldn't say no to delicious Southern cooking that someone had gone out of their way to make me. 

I am so appreciative of the help I received through this challenging time. I thank "God" for sending those angels my way. But... I didn't want to be a burden, so I tried to get to Walmart myself today instead of asking someone to go there and bring something to me. Those people had already done so much for me, ya know? Unfortunately, my body isn't ready for any serious walking yet. Not at all, but I didn't know until I tried it. 

Yeah, no. Not a good idea at all.
