When your life is ruled by “I CAN’T”

Today I had to ask my husband to come get me from work and take me home. 

I had been sitting at my desk, and when I got up, my back muscles contorted, causing a massive spasm which literally threw me on top of the desk. I imagine I was quite the sight as I was holding onto my keyboard for dear life, not able to get to the chair and trying desperately not to hit the floor.

One of my worst nightmares was unfolding as I realized I was going to have to call my boss and coworker to cover for me. I was going to let people down and have to accept the fact that, at least for now, I am not able to fulfill my work responsibilities.

I hate, more than anything else, to not be able to do what I know I should be able to do. Lately, I have been saying, and have been believing, and have been coming to terms with those two little words a lot:  “I CAN’T!”

    Laurie, I have been there and it’s the worst feeling ever to have to say I can’t. I felt guilty that my coworker had to cover for me as she knew almost nothing about what I did. So she did all she could and the rest was piled up when I returned. I have been so independent my whole life and it’s very hard to say those words but at the time I had no choice and had to put it all in God’s hands. It all worked out. He is awesome.
