If I wanted to fuss, really, I could. I could fuss about the ignorant comment made by the dermatologist the other day. I could fuss about being in the ER this afternoon. I could fuss, if I wanted to.
But I choose not to fuss. I choose to think about the good things from today.
I choose to focus on the fact that I am the proud owner of Good Eats Volume 1, by the one and only Alton Brown. I bumped into the UPS truck on my way to get the mail today, and the UPS man delivered it.
And I choose to focus on the fact that I was approved for an iPad grant.
And how about the fact that my mom’s best friend B was able to take me to the doctor not only yesterday but to the ER today and stay with me the whole time. I won’t go into detail about the reason that brought me there, but let me say that it would take only a true friend to stick by me through that.
And then there were all the doctors and nurses and techs and aides at the ER. Not once did I even have to pull the autism card and explain myself, because every one of them was so good at doing their jobs, reading people, and giving quality care. I never felt embarrassed or ashamed or scared.
And finally, the Big Bang Theory is on TV… so I’m a-gonna go watch it! And laugh hysterically…
