Mourning Loss of Mobility
Due to a recent diagnosis, I have lost the ability to perform many tasks as I once was able to. I have used walking aids for the past 5 months, many of my “friends” no longer invite me to hang out, I am told no to many activities, and so much more. Grief to me means the loss of anything that impacts me in my life, not just the loss of a person or pet. I am grieving what my life used to be. It’s important to realize that even when everything seems like it’s falling apart, there is always some sort of life and hope around still. We just have to look a little harder for it. I’m aware that it can feel impossible.
Put on a good playlist or movie, give a friend a call, or anything else that can make you comfortable. And remember, there are ALWAYS people out there who love and care for you.
