ELECTRITY

R POWER WAS OFF 4 AN HOUR WEDNESDAY, & I WAS JOLTED BACK 2 THE 1ST FEW MONTHS AFTER MY STROKE (GUESS ON A A SUN., BECAUSE WE DON'T WATCH TV ON SUN.)

MY WORLD RELIES COMPLETELY ON POWER. W/O IT, I CAN'T EMAIL, DIGITAL SCRAP., DIGITAL JOURNAL, HAVE CONTACT W/ANY1 (I CAN USE A PHONE), NO TV, LISTEN 2 AN AUDIO BOOK, PLAY MY PIANO/SYNTHESIZER, OR EVEN GO ON MY ELEVATOR. I WAS STUCK DOWNSTAIRS. LUCKILY, I'D MUCH RATHER BE DOWNSTAIRS THAN UPSTAIRS. WHY? THERE'S A GUEST BED & BATH. THERE'S A DOOR. THE KIDS HAVE A TOY ROOM THEY'D GATHER IN, & IF DESPERATE, I HAVE FAM. PICS I CAN ENTERTAIN MYSELF WITH. BUT ALL THERAPY STUFF—MY 1 THING THAT REQUIRES NO ELECTRICITY—IS UPSTAIRS. M 1 EXCEPTION: MY SPA 4 SWIM THERAPY. ALSO, ½ OF MY UPSTAIRS THERAPY EQUIPMENT COULD EASILY BE CARRIED DOWNSTAIRS.

MY POWER WHEELCHAIR USES RE-CHARGEABLE BATTERIES (SO I WAS SAFE & COULD MOVE–A HUGE PROBLEM WHEN I WAS 1ST HOME AFTER MY STROKE) & MY FAM. HUNG OUT W/ME, SO THIS WAS MUCH MORE PALLETABLE THAN MY MANUAL W/C!

STILL, I WONDER HOW PEOPLE LIKE ME LIVED B4 EINSTEIN. MAYBE THEY DIDN'T. A BIG FACTOR 2 MY LIFE IS MACHINES, POWERED BY ELECTRICITY. THE OTHER FACTOR IS GOD.
