First me then my friend… Fractured days!

It’s been a while since I did not write anything. Hectic days! My friend/flatmate broke her wrist into 4 pieces, underwent a surgery and now she’s literally Iron Woman! A titanium plate with 8 screws is holding her wrist back.

Honestly, I don’t wish for anyone what she had to go through especially in a country that is not our own. Luckily me and Suzi (our other flatmate) were there when it happened. I stayed overnight with her at the Hospital the day of the surgery and the next day as well until she got discharged in the evening.

Since I’m going through the whole suspension process, I’ve explained to her what will happen and that she needs A LOT of patience in the upcoming weeks. Doctor visits, our company asking about the progress, insurance approvals and physiotherapy. It all can seem extremely overwhelming. Not to mention not working after being extremely active.

It affects our mental stability and stresses our body, because you are literally left in the unknown until you are fit to fly. However if there is any good in this situation, is that we are here for one another even if it’s both of us suspended, we feel there is someone who will support us and help us when needed.

For now all we can do is sit back, relax and enjoy our recovery!

From Chaos to Calmness

It’s been one week since I left home to come back to Abu Dhabi after having my cast removed. The past 6 days have been more intense than the whole year! I’ve visited more Doctors than I did since I can remember, almost sliced my left ring finger off while chopping a zucchini and ended up getting it stitched back!

My brain revolutions are 1000 per minute, its a mix of feelings, thoughts, fears and stress of not being able to work yet and trying to resolve my post ankle care all alone in a country that is not my own.  Luckily, I have friends who care for me and even though they’re not always around, a simple text or visit reassures me. I thank the universe for them! ♥

Now I have learnt that things happen to us when we least expect it.  Maybe this break  (1 month and 15 days so far) was what my body needed. I was telling my friend that even my hearing improved! I can hear sharper not like when I’m constantly flying. Body is rested and even though my mind is not. I’m trying to control it!

Accidents can happen to anyone but in my case, I’ve always played the strong character so I can’t understand it! I have A LOT OF FREE TIME and do not know how to use it, my finances are on hold because I’m not receiving an income BUT deep down inside, my mind tells me I’ll be ok. This is just a lesson to learn, maybe I’m closing chapters and better things are on the way!
