Paralyzed for a Day #FlashFiction #specialneeds

“It’s too soon to know.

Could be a week

could be a month

or forever!”  The doctor’s said.

Glad I’m alive and yet…

“Will I ever see, or feel, be able to lift my baby again?

I hate that I can’t take care of myself”  she thought.

The prospective employers did not understand nor care…

I was one of the lucky ones – rendered paralyzed, from a car accident, on one side for a year.  I did lose my livelihood  ( and long aspired for profession) because of discrimination  which, at the time, I did not believe could be the case.

However, I can get out of bed each day, take care of my hygiene,  and feel a child holding my hand. Though I have empathy for my brothers and sisters who live each day with limitations, I never would choose to back . Try it for a day and see how painful life is as a “differently-abled”  often misunderstood person.

I would like to thank G-Man for weekly hosting Friday Flash Fiction. Its a great challenge to formulate and idea in 55 words.
