My friends invited me to go see a waterfall with them, and that involves some hiking. I’m thinking to give it a try as I’m feeling confident these days!
Does your surgery allow you to try things you didn’t even think of trying before?
Great question! I’ve always avoided rides at the fair because I figured I was too big to get on anything. Even though it’s been six months since my surgery and my incisions have obviously healed, I didn’t ride a roller coaster or anything that intense, but I got on some of the other rides and had a great time. I also stayed away from the food areas so I wouldn’t be tempted to scarf down a funnel cake or three.
My answer might be not that spectacular as hiking or riding a roller coaster because I tried eating vegetables now. I normally eat meat or bread, but always avoided vegetables as it doesn’t look appetizing. It doesn’t taste bad as I thought before, and I’m liking a few of them now that I’ve tasted them.
Those are great ideas, everyone! George, don’t be discouraged. Above anything else, it’s a step towards a better and healthier self, so even something small already means a lot. Maybe someday you will feel like being more adventurous.
On a side note, I did go hiking with my friends. What an experience!
