i hate when people automatically assume that because i say i can’t do something or I won’t that it’s because “of your condition”. i was talking to my aunt last nite and we were talking about long distance driving. I said that the only place i drive to is Charlotte because it’s only 3 1/2 hrs away and even that is a stretch. she said, “yes yes…in ur condition blah blah blah”. she’s not the first one with whom I’ve had this exact conversation to say this. The other person kept insisting that i shouldn’t do it blah blah blah…the truth is that i don’t drive anywhere because i can’t stand to sit in a car for that length of time! I too old for that shit!! back in the day, we would jump in a car and drive to NY and Miami at the drop of a hat….u cyah pay me enuf to do that crap NO MORE…everywhere i go, i fly!
Now don’t get me wrong. I know that there are some things that i shouldn’t/wouldn’t do “in my condition” – u won’t hear of me signing up for a 10K anytime soon – but i know what those are and i know my limitations. There was a time ago when i said “to hell with it; I’m doing it” but those days are long gone. My “superhero” days are over!
