Yep! I was right! They’re making me work… and so far as I can tell, they don’t seem to care if I’m tired either. I have to be honest, it really, really stinks! If they push me when I am really tired, then there’s no chance of them believing me when I’m pretending to be tired! Even today, I tried the “I don’t feel good” complaint thinking that my OT and PT would let me go since the last time they saw me I threw up on them… but they didn’t. Humph!
So. I did a lot of walking today. A. Lot. They think I don’t know that they took my wheelchair and hid it, but I knew. Once it was there, all of a sudden it disappeared and I had to go around THE WHOLE FLOOR to find it. Seriously! Do they think I would believe wheelchairs just roll away on their own? Well… maybe MINE did. I think. Maybe. Who knows…
All I know is, I did a lot of walking.
In their sessions (all therapy sessions), they give me 3 tasks then a reward or “transition” – I’ve heard that word for years and STILL don’t get what that means. No matter what, I have to do the three tasks. I even have to open a marker (mostly) by myself and draw a line through the finished task before I go onto the next one. I wonder if they know just how HARD that is!?!?
They’re pushing me and I’m doing it, so Mom and Dad say it’s perfect.
They also say that if I continue to work hard, I can probably get home in my own bed with O and B within 7 days! THAT is motivation enough for me!
Here’s some videos my mom took of me doing stuff. She says that no one ever thought I’d be able to do these things so quickly. She says, everyone thought it would take me 2 months or more to get where I am now. Me… I think I have SO many people praying for me and supporting me and my family, that I have no other option than to be Superman!
