What Do “They” Know Anyway

⚠️⚠️️️⚠️WARNING⚠️⚠️⚠️ This post may be upsetting or depressing for some. Below is the outcome of my recent mandatory Medicare “Wellness Visit” via televisit.

THEY” SAY: Increase your Zoloft. . .

I SAY: Why?

  • will it enable me to walk? 🚶
  • will it enable me to garden again? 🌹🥀🌺🌻🌼🌷
  • will it enable me to get myself a cup of coffee? ☕ 
  • will it enable me to do my laundry? 🧺
  • will it enable me to go visit my elderly parents whenever I want instead of waiting until I get driven there?
  • Etc., etc., etc.,

THEY” SAY: Talk to a therapist. . .

I SAY: Why?

  • will it enable me to cook a turkey for #Thanksgiving? 🦃
  • will it enable me to drive my elderly parents to the doctor? 🚗
  • will it enable me to help my elderly parents in any way? Clean for them? 🧹 Do their laundry?
  • Etc., etc., etc.,

Sorry but I don’t understand why increased prescriptions or talking to someone will change anything in my particular situation. Nothing anyone can prescribe will change the fact that I am #paralyzed and stuck in this #wheelchair 🦽 for the rest of my life. Nothing anyone can say to me that will ease the pain and heartache 💔 of not being able to help my parents.

I may be old school but I don’t believe any amount of prescription drugs can or even should cover up or mask the truth. Instead, I somehow need to someday find a way to be okay with the fact that my life, as I knew it, is over. Maybe someday, with God’s grace, I’ll learn to accept, I’ll learn to find happiness.
