Everything Old is New Again…

June 3, 2009 § 11 Comments

In Tonight’s Comic Adventure: Watch out world! Miss Waxie is behind the wheels of her 1995 Geo Prism again, left eye cataract be damned!  And, okay,  she didn’t go farther than around her block. Twice. Still…she drove! Only being chronically ill could make a milestone you’ve past long ago something exciting to experience again. I wonder how it will feel when I relearn to ride a bike.

    Love the hubcaps!

    Wishing you a speedy recovery, and that you are soon back behind the wheel. (Assuming, of course, that you are a good driver.)

  • Gary Miller says:

    Yeah… Roadtrip!

    Well done and watch out world!

  • Aviva says:

    Wow — you’re a good person to voluntarily sideline yourself like that from driving. Smart too, since the last thing you need is trauma injuries to have to heal from too. But ugh, I sympathize on being trapped in your house. One of my big fears is losing my license, which I really only use to make the rounds of doctors’ offices and occasionally the pharmacy. But I’m terrified of how hard it would be to see my doctors without being able to drive, and how even more helpless I’d feel.

    Glad you’re (almost?) back on the road, and I hope the next surgery goes well too!!

    It’s amazing to me how my illness wrapped up so many mundane activities with layers of meaning. Driving isn’t just driving – it’s independence, it’s freedom, it’s normalcy. I used to be terrified to drive because I might have an accident when I was behind the wheel – no, not the kind of accident where I’d run into someone. With Crohn’s disease, the most terrifying thing is going in your pants. Which is also wrapped up with layers of meaning! If I go in my pants, I’m a child, I have no control. So ironically, whereas driving made me feel like an independent adult (success), it carried with it a big risk of going in my pants, which would make me feel like a naughty child (failure). Ugghh!

    Hope you’ve got the keys back for good, and that someday a drive will just be a drive again. And the bicycle! I really hope you get to ride your bike again. I remember the first time riding my bike after I had ileostomy surgery. I laughed and laughed, I was so happy!

    i hope it leads you to Pittsburgh 🙂

  • Aviva says:

    hey Ms. Waxie!

    I’m just a little worried about you since I haven’t seen any new posts in awhile. I hope you’re feeling well and just taking a bit of a break to enjoy the summer. I miss you!

  • d says:

  • Gary Miller says:

    Yeah, I agree with Aviva.

    Hope you’re OK Miss Waxie and that you just enjoying some time off.
