Well, I’ve transitioned pretty well into this school year. The most annoying thing so far has been the new rules at work. The library is no longer offering public access to non-students and having to individually check the IDs of every single person who walks into the library.
I’m still having a bit of an issue with stairs. I try to take them when I can, but there are times where I’d rather just save my spoons and take the elevator. I get a little self conscious whenever I do, though, even if I’m alone. I’m not in a wheelchair and I’m not on crutches.
Taking the elevator is something only “lazy” people are supposed to do.
Sometimes I just would like to get a cane so I won’t get weird looks for taking the elevator to the second floor.
I may or may not need one anyways. The main reason why I don’t wear a knee brace anymore is that I’d need them for both knees and like every day. It’d just look silly. I know most people probably don’t even care that I take the elevator, but there’s always that nagging voice at the back of my head.
I always joke how skating is what ruined my body, but everything I went through during then was generally tolerable until these past couple years. I don’t think this is skating related anymore.
Until then, I gotta deal with my old lady joint problems one day at a time.
