This was unexpected


I was reading this book yesterday by Arundhati Roy “The God of Small Things”. There’s this one place that says: “Everything can change in one day.” In the book they’re still hinting on the things that will start changing. I, however, learned the hard way yesterday that everything can change in just one moment.

Went checking out my new route for rollerblading, stepped (rolled) down the pavement and almost on zero speed, fell backwards so unhappily that I broke my wrist. Not much of a surprise that nobody stopped to help. What do you do when you see a girl sitting on a pavement, caps off, blades on, crying and holding her arm. Sure, you stare out of your car window, drive on and think how lucky you are to be all right.

Just by coincidence, a friend drove by, took me to emergency and spent the whole 1,5 hours with me. Half of the time there, I was crying. Not because of the pain, as everybody seemed to be assuming, but because of the psychological hit. I have never spent any time in hospitals, during my adult life the only things I’ve ever caught, have been a couple of colds. I’ve never felt more helpless than yesterday, when the nurses put the cast on…it stays on for a whole month! So far, buttoning my shirt and putting on the bra have proven to be the hardest challenges….tonight, however, another one awaits…the shower. Anyone wanna help;)?
