I’m truly pissed off and Angry at the world.
I was having a pretty good run of things with only a slight injury a few weeks ago. But today or technically yesterday just before it was time to unbox my new awesome Gaming Beast of a machine.
My hired muscle was here, I got him to empty the recycling (because of the Sardine cans for the cats) then out with the compost too, because he forgot to do it on trash time Tuesday.
Then I asked him for my flybuys card so I could take a photo of it for a digital record. Flybuys is a point collecting loyalty reward program for when you buy stuff. Trying to take the photo of it was pissing me off because the shadow of holding the phone above kept making the card number unreadable, so I had a great idea.
I put a little water on the back of the card then stuck it to the kitchen cupboard to take the photo. Genius ideas are my speciality after all.
Scott had a bit of a laugh at how pedantic I can be. I’m smiling and happy because there is a great thing about to happen in my office, nothing could spoil my mood. As soon as we get these boring tasks out of the way first. Well I got a great shot of the card.
I was crouching down to take the photo.
So it was when I got back up again that trouble struck. I didn’t fall or anything like that but seems the bottom half of my body moved too fast for the top half, I yelled out loud enough to wake the dead and scared the crap out of Scott. I have a very powerful voice. There was some very very colourful profanity that accompanied the scream.
So now I have yet another compression fracture in my spine. Plus 4 weeks of incapacitation & excruciating pain caused by the edema around my spinal cord. Life sometimes really sucks.
My anger is at our maker, why did I have to be born with this genetic defect. I live so restrictive to avoid too many injuries, but still I keep breaking apart. It’s just not fair.
Long before the days of Political Correctness the nickname for Osteogenesis Imperfecta was Humpty Dumpty Syndrome. It was an apt nickname.
But if you remember the nursery rhyme, here I’ll tell you anyway.
“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the kings horses and all the kings men,
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.”
It’s just like this nursery rhyme was written for Osteogenesis Imperfecta and Humpty Dumpty was an egg with arms and legs. Those unlucky enough to be born with type 3 are actually very much like egg shaped bodies. So with the advent of a politically correct era. The nickname is no more.
I was wrong about the mood spoiler factor up there too. My computer is NOT YET set up properly because my concentration was up the Wahzoo. But @Alphea will be happy to know I directed Scott on how to open the box. The right way.
Thanks for letting me ramble on even though you didn’t actually get a choice in the matter. But it felt good to get it off my chest.
