I have never thought very much about how my health affects my daily life, because I've been blessed with good health (or at least have fought my way back to it in the past). I hurt my knee last night - and now the simplest tasks seem monumental.
So I'm experiencing a very sincere empathy with anyone facing physical challenges, whether temporary or chronic. And part of those challenges include, of course, the natural limiting of your daily activities (including planned events that may need to be cancelled), visiting doctors, constant discomfort, needing assistance in almost anything you do....the list goes on.
Bah. I obviously make a very bad patient. Possibly because it might involve "patience" as well???
