Once again, it's that time of month for dear Judi's Artsy Essay Contest! Please see the rules and regulations for this month here. I entered a couple month's ago when Judi decided to revive this wonderful contest, and decided I'd like to give it a shot this month! Here goes!
My Ideal Day
My ideal day would start out at 7am to get ready for work, instead of getting up to take a pill.
My ideal day would be going to work as a teacher, instead of wondering if I'd feel well enough to do anything for that day.
My ideal day would be working out at a gym, instead of hoping to have enough energy to just walk for 6 minutes on the treadmill at home.
My ideal day would be to freely walk about around my home and in public, instead of being tethered to a plastic tube going into my nose, providing oxygen to keep me going.
My ideal day would be remembering meeting times with friends or family, instead of keeping track of the 8 different times I need to take a pill or vitamin in a day.
My ideal day would be to go for a walk down the street with energy, instead of feeling so short of breath that I have to stop walking for a few minutes.
My ideal day would be to hope in the car and go for a drive, or a long trip, instead of worrying about what to do for oxygen needs and if I had enough medicine to do so.
My ideal day would be to keep going from one thing to another, instead of needing a nap in the afternoon just so I can finish the rest of my day.
My ideal day would be to be a normal person, with no health concerns, instead of being a pulmonary hypertension patient wishing that every day would be one that I can make it through.
