When there is little you can do, you would think that it wouldn’t be too bad if it was a rainy day. Can’t do anything anyway, so what’s it matter? However, because I can still use both legs, these rainy days can be very frustrating and boring.
Why? Well, the daily long walk is something I look forward to at the moment and when it rains I can’t go. Getting wet doesn’t bother me, but it does bother the casts and that is the problem with walking in the rain at the moment. If I didn’t have the casts it would be fine, there wouldn’t be a problem. But with the rain I’m confined pretty much to barracks.
So I don’t have a lot of choices at this stage, though certainly I could be doing a lot more reading. Reading however is not something I am inclined to do at the moment. Not sure why, but just finding it difficult to knuckle down to any serious reading – maybe because of the brain injury, who knows. I am going to try reading again today however.
The other choices are limited to activities around music and television (or similar activities), which I can only take in small doses. Most of my time is currently being spent on the computer doing various things like email, etc.
It has now been 4 weeks since the accident.
