Too strong for my own good

The alarm went off this morning, and I rolled out of bed.

When my butt felt thin air, I realized I had rolled too far.

My hands were on my stripper pole, so I did not really fall, just sat down on the floor.

I pulled myself up standing twice, but it was like, now what? My feet were sliding this way and that so my legs couldn't support me. Even though I was upright, I could not get back into bed or into my chair.

Fortunately, my phone was right there and I called my sister.

She came and put my shoes on and helped me up. If I had even thought of putting on my shoes, I would not have had to call her. The shoes were easily accessible. Why didn't I think of it? What a waste.

And it stuck with me all day.

When I woke up at 11:15, I didn't want to get up and maybe fall again. I finally did, but it took all of my positive thinking. I didn't do anything all day, not even swimming.

Not that it helped. I still feel crummy.

Let it go!! You had just awakened. You weren't psychologically ready for shoes so didn't think of putting them on.

Maybe if I title a post "stripper pole."

"Ifs" and never letting it go give me strength
