Greetings! Today, I go by the name of “The Disabled Princess” because I’m going to have my “horse and coach” take me to a very special event…
My appointment with a psychologist in order to get evaluated. It’s a step towards seeing whether or not I’ll be eligible for disability. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes well. For sure it will. I mean, the psychologist left a message on my answering machine last night to confirm the appointment and he sounded friendly.
I’ve also been apprehensive about the idea of having some stranger take me to the appointment. At first, I wasn’t crazy about the idea of using the DES transportation service, but I don’t want to take the chance of trying to drive out there and then end up being too fatigued or in too much pain to go any further. This appointment is a gotta-be! So, I decided that I would use the transportation option yesterday and I called DES to request transportation.
Plus, I have a plan to calm my nerves. I’m planning on taking on Ativan before the appointment. Plus, I’ll bring my pillow for my back and my crocheting so then I have something to do when being driven there. So, I’ll be a “brave, determined, chilled disabled princess” going in style!
As a matter of fact, disability or not, we can ALL feel like royalty. The primary quality of feeling like royalty is self-respect!
Wish me luck that all goes well with this appointment!

p.s. They should really come up with a Disney princess with a handicap! They haven’t don’t that yet!!
