So, I am finally home from the hospital. Not 100% yet, it will be a while before I am. So when my SO had to go to the store today, we hit a dilemma. He didn't want to leave me alone, but my wheelchair isn't coming until Monday and I am no where near strong enough for walking through a store. I barely make it from the car to the house with my walker. :(
Needless to say, at 24 years old that sucks enough. So, he suggested I just use one of the stores power scooters. I sucked up my pride and agreed. I ignored the looks, whatever. But while we were in line waiting to check out some bitch just HAD to "whisper" to whomever she was with "I can't believe healthy people just take those things, what if someone who needs it can't now?! Just being pregnant is not a reason, that is just plain lazy"
Shamefully, I admit, no witty comeback slipped off my tongue, I just teared up. Tried not to start bawling right there in the grocery store. She doesn't know. She isn't aware that just because I look healthy, I have lupus and its attacking my nervous system and I've been in the hospital the last 3 weeks and I don't know if I will ever walk completely normally again. Sigh.
Still, I wish she had just kept her stupid mout shut. Enough of my pride and dignity is already gone. :(
End rant. People suck. Ok, really, end rant.
