I am dreading this post, for it forces me to be real, expose the blemishes. This weekend, I realized that life really doesn't work perfectly. My stroke and subsequent Cerebral Palsy force me to do something I absolutely need to do more often. Ask for help! I wish I could be totally self-sufficient, but that's not plausible at the moment. I cannot drive. I cannot read a map. No depth perception and an inability to sequence make both a near impossibility. I can speak foreign languages, yet cannot follow GPS most of the time. To feel so smart, and yet so dumb at the same time. It's embarrassing to admit this. I need help, and I am ashamed that I need it.
I hate being a burden, maybe one day I will eradicate that word from my vocabulary, but that dear friends will require some help.
Could I ask you for your help, today?
Help me look at the glass half-full, and get rid of that word, burden!
