Yes, I do! And I’m not even what most people would call disabled.
But then, isn’t that true of a lot of healthy people, too? How many jobs are 35 or 40 hours a week, sitting at a desk?
I’ve been out three times this week (blimey - that’s almost a record!). Once was sitting in a lecture hall all afternoon, once was in a pub all afternoon, and only today have I actually been on my feet and braved the crowds - and boy, am I paying for it now!
It didn’t help that I totally screwed up with the “new” bus times - which are now only every 90 minutes. Despite checking the timetable, I somehow must have misread it or something (perhaps we’re back to the glasses again!), and found I’d missed the bus home by five minutes - leaving 85 minutes 'til the next one.
It was made worse by the fact that, believing I was in plenty of time, I’d had a sit down for a rest on the way to the bus stop. Had I pressed on regardless, I would not have lost that five minutes, and so not missed the bus I didn’t realise was due!
I couldn’t face a whole extra 85 minutes up there (even if I went somewhere for coffee) waiting for another bus. So I had no choice but to get a different bus that doesn’t really come anywhere near my house - and walk the difference - with the heavy shopping!
Now I have aches & cramps all over, and am drinking strong coffee (but thinking strong liquor would be better), and popping pills! I’ve even got cramp in my boobs - aka pectoral cramps - to do with carrying the bags.
Oh, and I got soaked as well.
If it’s a choice between that lot, and sitting on my bum, I think sitting on my bum wins the next time!
