Aka Wheels For Annika, part two. I wanted to make one of these each month this year, and before I knew it the whole month of february had gone by. But I remembered just in time to keep a photo diary on the very last day, which still counts, so I haven’t failed yet. Hurra! Little did I know that this was the day Wheels For Annika would begin. So now I’m super happy I documented this day ❤ 8.30-9.00 Don’t hate, medicate. 9.00-10.00 I slept insanely crappy the night before, so everything hurts. I had plans with my friend Lilian, which I didn’t want to cancel. So I let her know I would be a bit later and take some time to stretch and relax my achy muscles. Kitties are vital for this relaxing part. 10.00-11.00 After a while I manage to drag my tired ass to the shower and even put on make up and everything. I drink some tea to rest after the shower. (when I’m tired, showers are a pain in the butt) Also ate some peanutbutter toast and cuddled the kitties some more. 11.00-12.00 I’m out of the house and waiting for the train, hurra! I celebrate with some Chai Soy Latte. The starbucks people almost never write my name wrong, so I squee that I can finally join that club of people. 12.00-13.00 I’m super touched by a message my sister put on her fb, asking for people to donate some money so I can buy my own wheelchair. A couple minutes later Maartje let’s me know she put everything on a gofundme page. The absolutely wonderful weirdness begins. 13.00-14.00 I arrive at my friends place. So far, so good! We have lunch together and I get to drink my tea out of the ET mug. SCORE. 14.00-15.00 Her cat Drommels is insanely cute. 15.00-16.00 Time for some serious shopping! 16.00-17.00 We like the same clothes, yup. I ended up buying a different dress, which is equally cute. (also, while CFS is considered an invisible illness, I am clearly showing signs of being super-duper tired here, haha, go red heads!) 17.00-18.00 After the shopping I go back home. And with the last of my battery I see that it’s over 1000euros already. The train is jampacked with people, so I try to hold back all my tears. 18.00-19.00 Almost home, finally. 19.00-20.00 I heat up some pumpkinsoup I made earlier that week and crash on the couch. 20.00-21.00 I finally have the time to read all the messages people have been putting online during the day. And I crack. I can’t stop crying happy tears. And me and Maartje call about how incredible all of this is ❤ 21.00-22.00 My daddy stops by after his work to see how I’m doing after this whole day. And he immediately does my dishes for me. ❤ 22.00-23.00 I should really be going to bed, but my adrenaline just keeps pumping and all my emotions are keeping me wide awake. The word overwhelming finally makes sense to me. 23.00-23.30 Finally able to think a little clearly again I make some tea and snuggle up in bed.
