I don’t want to say I’m completely over it, but I was bitter and mad. I mean, there were days that I would just literally come home, and just scream out loud, like you’d want to pull your hair out scream just because I did not want to be in this situation. I wanted to walk so very badly, well, I wanted to dance. Dancing, like I said, is my passion, and when they took that away, it’s like they took my legs. And for so long, it was just, it was really hard for me to cope with the idea that I wouldn’t be able to dance anymore. So, it was just very hard for me. I went to see a psychologist here at Shepherd, and then I went to see a psychiatrist sometimes. Sometimes it helps just to get it out, the change of environment, change of scene. You’re at home, and you’re in the same place, the same space all the time, you do the same routine over and over. Sometimes it helps to get out, talk to different people, just be in a different setting sometimes. And you can say the same thing to your caregiver, but it’s a different effect when you say it to somebody who you don’t see every day. And you go to their office, and just a change of scene sometimes helps to get that frustration out.
