I should start by saying, the day after my last entry, I had a big fall outside. That was my break down day. What happend was everyone was seperated into groups with orientation leaders. After one of our workshops, I had to stay and talk with one of the administrators in charge of services for studens with disabilities. While I was talking to him, my group went on to the next workshop so when I went outside I could not find them. While walking on the uneven brick road with my shoe laces untied and my foot aching from the brace on my leg, I was looking down at my cell phone tying to call my orientation leader to find out where she took the group then BOOM I tripped and fell. Luckily, there was a man riding on a golf cart who stopped and helped me up. I ended up getting a ride back to my room and I was allowed to rest for the day and not worry about the rest of the workshops. I spent the afternoon in my room crying because everything was starting to stress me out and I was feeling so overwhelmed. Classes haden't even started yet and I was aleady having a break down! I was so relieved when the weekend arrived and my dad came to pick me up. I really do love the people here though. It's like a big family. Everyone is nice and respectful to me. I am also proud of myself for walking around this humongous campus in 100 something degree weather. I never imagined I could do it but I do it everyday (with no falls)! I also went to a pool party last Friday and I met some new people at movie night. I am trying I really am! It is just so hard to break out of my shell when I acted this way the whole time I was in high school. It is also hard to walk upright with a smile on my face when I am hot sweaty tired and it feels like my ankles are about to fall off my legs which are about to fall off my body! But I am slowly getting used to the distance walking and having to look both ways efore crossing the streets and walking through parking lots because of my vision loss. Well I have my appointment in the morning and I have to finish up some English so I will close this out but first I have an appointment with occupational therapy on Friday so I am hoping and praying my life is about to get a tad more independent, pain less, and easier!
