Life on one leg

Yes, I still have both of my legs.  However, one of them is badly broken.  I'm in a brace and on crutches.  Thank God, they didn't put a cast on it, so I can take off the brace to scratch the itchies.

Getting around is problematic at best, even inside the house.  I've learned to hobble into the kitchen on one crutch, so I have a hand free to stir the pot and carry my bowl of soup back to my desk in the living room.

The two hardest things are sitting down and, even worse, getting up from a chair (or from the toilet).

I'm learning ways to bathe without the benefit of the bathroom fixtures that were designed for that purpose.  You see, sitting in a tub is out of the question, unless I want to spend the rest of my life in there.  Standing up in the shower is too painful.  Even my good leg begins to hurt after a few minutes because it has to carry all my weight with no aid from my left leg.

Every day I thank God that this is temporary.  My leg will heal, eventually.  It makes me feel even more sympathetic toward those who have lost one or both legs permanently.

Meanwhile, since I can't do much of anything involving physical activity, I've been experimenting with make-up.  Now, Granny always told me that if you paint your face when you're young, you'll have to paint your face when you're old.  At age 58, I still consider myself young, but my face seems to disagree.  I feel about 26 on the inside, but I'm beginning to look like 76 on the outside. 

I would appreciate any tips you might have about moisturizing (I have very dry skin), wrinkle reduction, choosing the right shades for fair skin with freckles, color coordinating, etc.  I have so little experience with make-up! 

Thank you so much for reading my post!

Hey Tessa, sorry to hear about leg. How are you doing? Have you recovered? Lots of love and all the very best from Poland.

I also have dry skin and my perfect match is La Roche Possay Hydreane cream. Although it may be too heavy for this time of year, it leaves the skin moisturized for long time.

thank you for your concern, and for the advice. I use Udderly Smooth Body Cream. It soaks right in, so my hands don't get slippery. My leg is getting better, but my knee is badly wrecked.
