I know this is not completely relevant to my blog, but I still want to say this.
For the last few days it has been a struggle for me to not be able to walk normally. It is hard for me to just get the mail or go on an errand to the store.
I just cannot imagine what it must be like for someone who knows for sure that for the rest of his or her life, he or she will not be able to do things easily that we take for granted ever again. This whole situation has given me a new perspective in life. It has taught me to really let go of the little things that do not go our way and appreciate what we have in our lives every day.
So, I have my list of restaurants that I go to that have options for gluten-free and dairy-free eating. I am going out to dinner on Sunday night with the Assistant Director of Outreach Recruitment from my alma mater Drexel University, while she is in the New York area. There is this really nice local restaurant I was to take her to that has delicious fajitas I can get without sour cream, cheese, and tortillas. But now, I just hope I do not have too hard of a time with the crutches. I called the restaurant and checked online and it seems okay, but I will just have to make it work. It’s just hard to add another obstacle to eating out. Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Accessible for Handicapped.
