Of course, I made a joke when being helped off the bathroom floor. That's what I do ... unless it is really, really bad.
It doesn't matter if it is my sister doing the helping, my brother-in-law or as it was today, my co-workers.
It also doesn't matter that it is about the last thing I wanted to do. I'd rather curse using words even my sisters don't use regularly. I'd rather cry and sob. I'd rather curl up on whatever floor I am on, damn God to hell, then wake up from this awful FA dream
I don't do any of that. I put my helpers at ease I let them know that I am OK and that helping me won't be a trying emotional experience. And by laughing and making fun of myself, I try to put myself at ease and let me know I am OK. I'm not sure I really am.
The texting for help worked well, though both helpers were out today. They got the message and called someone else to go help me.
