THE BETTY FORD DIARIES, PAGE 2*

THE ROAD TO "BIPED WORLD"



HI SWEETHEARTS!!!

Here I am again, writting from the Rehab Center, still trying to get connected to internet from this place. (actually I already talked even with the DIRECTOR of the Clinic and hr promised me he will do his best to arrange it).

I miss you so much!! but lemme tell ya, not as much as I thought I would, and it´s not because I love you less... it´s just because I DON´T HAVE TIME TO MISS YOU!!!!!!!! OR TO MISS ANYTHING OR TO EVEN THINK ABOUT ANYTHING BUT REHAB AND EXERCISES!!

you´ll see, my day starts at 6.30am with a hot shower and lots of pills (my regular cortizone medication). 7.15 breakfast in bed (I hate tea!!! so when nobody is watching, my assistant prepares me black coffe!) that I enjoy untill 8 o´clock, when they put me on my chair and take me to the gym (ok, instead of "to the gym" u can read "to Alejandro´s arms" eheheh) when I forget even my own name.
Activities last till 12.00 when we stop to have lunch. then, at 3pm (except thursdays when I start at 2.30pm) I´m back in the Gym, this time with SILVINA my other designated PT (well, she´s not a handsome, tall, muscled and hotty hunk but she´s terrific, not only because of her beauuty -blond, blue eyed, million dollar smiled latin Barbie- she has exactly my own sense of humor so you can get a picture of how hilarious a therapy session with us togheter can be) and it ends at 6.00pm when i have an appointment with my phonoaudiologyst (Another thing to point about my good luck in this place: SHE´S AN OPERA SINGER, SO SHE´S HELPIING ME TRYING TO FIND MY VOICE AGAIN... SO IM STARTING SINGING AGAIN!!) this lessons ussualy takes not less than 40 minutes.
Dinner is served at 7.00 (very early, here in Argentina people ussualy have dinner around 10pm!) and then, after eating... I´m free!!!!!!!!!! (to complain about how hardmy butt hurts after the whole journey).
Other activities I´m into are: OCUPATIONAL THERAPHY, SHRINK (FACE TO FACE CONFRONTATION WITH A PSYCO THING) AND PHONOAUDIOLOGY (with the Soprano teacher included)

As youu can see, I don´t even have time to think clearly about the fact that I´m locked here... and, fortunately, it doesn´t feels that way.
Here all you can do is to think about yourself, to work hard and above all things TO GET BETTER. Everything is setted up on that way and every member of this clinic staff is ere just to join you on that direction. All you need to do is to follow the signs they are showing... and to work hard.





THE RESULTS:

  • AFTER LESS THAN TWO WEEKS HERE:
    • I CAN STAND UP WITHOUT ASSISTANCE
    • I´M WALKING (WITH HELP)
    • I RECOVER MY ARMS STRENGHT ( I can move my wheelchair by myself now and I´m free to move from one room to the others without my assistant´s help INDEPENDENCE!!!!!!!!).
    • I´M RECOVERING MY VOICE and my talking problem is fading everyday more.
    • MY CHEST IS GROWING AND MY BELLY IS DISSAPEARING (Thank te Lord!!!, since this shit started, I was becoming a giant MEXICAN PIÑATA!, and now that my therapy innncludes 350 ABS everyday... I´ll become a 2000 queer version of Marky Mark).

so.... I´M HAPPY.
