Does it ever feel like the dark shadows are stalking you? Shyla might feel that way at sunrise!
I don't have much time to write today but a shadow captured me this weekend. I'm feeling more overwhelmed by it than normal because of the other things in my life, like my dad's health, that are weighing on me. By contrast, the fact that I probably tore my ACL this weekend isn't a really big deal. However, I'm still sad about it because of the adventures that it may cause me to miss.
I am seeing an orthopedist today, and we'll go from there. The swelling is astoundingly huge, and now part of the knee is turning black and blue too!
If you've been reading for a while, you probably are not surprised that I immediately asked permission to keep riding a bike. Riding a bike doesn't hurt very much, although my pain scale is a bit skewed by having experienced nerve pain from my back. Nerve pain is an order of magnitude worse for me than any other kind. In any case, I still rode my bike this morning... and I lived to talk about it!
I will keep trying to look on the bright side, away from the shadows!
