My name is not Susan

My name is not Susan or Gimpy or Cripple or whatever funny name you think you will call me to lighten the fact that I hurt my foot.

Here is how I feel right now:

My foot hurts.  More than it hurt on it’s worst day before the stupid boot.

I’m mad because I had to buy a pair of ugly shoes because I either have heels or flip flops.  Heels would probably cause me do a face plant and flip flops aren’t allowed at work (don’t you think I could get away with it to combat my stupid boot – I think it’s the right thing to do)

My hips/back hurt from lugging this stupid boot

I’m annoyed that the doctor had to write me a note so I could get a secured at work.  Like the boot wasn’t notice enough?

I can’t believe that people would cut me off to get on a shuttle after they saw my boot (I know they saw it they were staring at it like they wanted to ask what happened).  Next time I’ll grab them by the shirt collars and say ‘oh sorry, I needed a little assistance’ lol Here’s the funny thing, they couldn’t leave without me… and there was plenty of seating!

I’ve got a stomachache every time I think about that marathon that I can’t run.  But I will be there, boot or no boot to root on my friends!

And the boot is so big you can’t even see my cute pedicure

I am thankful it could be worse.

I am thankful for medical coverage, a good coverage at that

I am thankful that in 4-6 weeks it will be healed

I am thankful for a lot of things… I’m just annoyed.
