I’m not generally an angry person whatsoever, I’m more logical one and think problems through. But in that period of time, when I’m lying flat in bed paralyzed, and people were wiping my butt, and taking care of everything for me, I was angry. Well, I actually am way better at right now than I ever was, because I sit down and think about it before I react. It’s patience, which I’ve learned from not having any choice in the matter, it is like, if a caregiver doesn’t show up in the morning, I’m lying flat in bed, not much I can do about that other than find another caregiver. Being angry doesn’t help. So, yes internally I probably am still, but the logical part of me says, “let’s find another caregiver, let it go.” So, I have been better at that.
