To Ride or not to Ride

It finally happened I got hit so hard I got put in the hospital. Push right go right didn't help. So here I lay all broken and sore. 10 bones and a toe So I'll start the list from head to toe. My prescription glasses broken over my face. I have a broken nose, crushed left orbital. Broken right radius, four broken ribs left side, my spleen was damaged, splenectomy. left pulmonary contusion. Pleural effusion on my left leg I have a broken femur that has a plate & screws. Below the knee on my left leg my tibia and fibula were broken off four inches above my heel, so the bone is just missing there's a 4" gap between my bones and heel. Since my release from the hospital straight to my home. Im hobbling around with an external fixater that manages to find and hit everything. I can't be upright for more than an hour or two without my foot swelling leading to extreme discomfort. My knee pops and grinds I lost half my movement so it makes it hard to travel in cars or sit in general. I went from being cooped up in the hospital too cooped up in my own home. I was an electric scooter charger, scraping by during the winter to begin with I had to put everything on hold because I can't get out and pick any up. So I have no income whatsoever. I got some help with meds, food, and a little cleaning. I know I'm wearing my friends gratuity thin. Pluss, I have regular bills pilling up. I'm digging a very deep hole for myself. I'm generally the one doing what I can for charities, it's hard to admit but I need the charity now.
