Climbing the Walls

  1. No. I cannot see you spending the rest of your life in sneakers and flats. I can actually see you being the reason why new “leggy” heels are invented.
    As much as I love relaxing days, I know too many non-active days are not relaxing. This is especially true for you – not being given the choice to be inactive but being forced into inactivity.
    Climbing the walls? I’m surprised you aren’t kicking a hole in the walls.

  2. You go out my dear. You go out… even for a ride around the block, your dogs? Get a wheelchair friendly lead and go. So is it Gwen or Gwyn? I always refer to you as “Kit” when I talk about your posts with my hubby, as in kintsukuroi. I have seen those artificial legs made for high heels, they are unbelievably lifelike and you can even paint the toenails. ($$$ no idea?) You gotta do your time, put up with it… be glad there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Call it what it is, a sucky time to get through. And yes, driving a stick will be just as fun, if not MORE fun! I think you are doing an amazing job, a road less traveled and far worse than people could ever imagine, yet… you are still at it. You got this, Badass!~Kim

  3. First of all, there is a fellow out there who makes whatever you need for a new foot or leg. Look on line and find him. He will make you a leg and foot for dancing. He should have no problem doing it for high, high heels.
    Second, the fact that you are not able to do much now is completely irrelevant. Why? It’s only for a while. Awhile may seem like a very long time to you. 6 months is quite a while, but it’s not forever. “How would you have any idea!” Well, all of my life except under the age of 12, I can get up feeling great, take a shower and be ready to go back to bed for the day. That sucks. Never have been able to work 40 hours. 30 is very hard. Do anything else after or before isn’t thought. I make lists that most finish in one day that I use over the week. If I push it, I end up sleeping for days. Now, I’m not complaining. This is my life. My husband loves me as I am. People who know me realize that I am not lazy. How I dream of doing things! I work around it. It has been hard sometimes. Sometimes I feel lazy, but I know better. When you are done with your healing, physically, you will start doing again. Your energy will be there and your life barely different. Ok, lots of right shoes, which means your closet will hold twice as many. Go shopping! Your inner self is intact and bubbly. You spunk is sharp and ready to attack. You are you. Your leg is crying for its old self. Help it heal and help it move on. Time is the only cure.
    Sorry to cut, but you still have your life ahead of you and lots of energy. Love you much. ❤️

      1. I know you do and I knew you’d realize that I spoke in love to one I have always loved! Thanks for being you. I am so proud to know you. ❤️

  4. Oh honey =) When I tore my lumbar muscle and realized my dance career was over, oddly, the hardest part was being stuck inside. I am so sorry, this must seem like the longest 6 months ever.

      1. Oh, something insensitive and moronic I expect…
        ” A climbing wall? Well, I suppose she only has to worry about finding half the footholds now….”
