FA doesn't care

I am struggling.

For the past several weeks, all I have wanted to do is nap, read comic books and watch TV. I combined the last two by catching up on Arrow, watching 18 episodes over the past three days. (That Felicity Smoak!)

But amid my struggles, regular life with Friedreich's ataxia does not slow down, leading to a new catchphrase: There is nothing FA can't make worse.

I fell last week. Unlike my usual falls. this one hurt. I bashed my right side on the heating grate in the floor and think I probably cracked a rib.

Not much to do,  I hear.

The problem is, though, that normal people can avoid using the muscles that stretch across the ribcage. I can't. Or I can, if I want to stay immobile in bed. But I only have a few more episodes of Arrow.

First, some words about Arrow. Felicity Smoak is my favorite character on television currently. Also, what's the deal with the later seasons having far far fewer shirtless Oliver workouts? I mean, come on. As far as the FA, just f&*$(%, I guess? I love you.

I can give you a list of a boatload of shows to binge watch. With all the time I spend in bed, I'm an expert.

Favorite TV character? Well, she is cool. Top 3 for me. Hard to beat Dr. Who or Supergirl.

I don't want to stare at the TV.
