Me against the mighty man
Feeling useless is just one of the many.. Many feelings I’ve had to endure for the past week or so. I can’t just walk outside whenever I want, I can’t help my girlfriend pack in this stressful time, I can’t shower without her help.. I am ashamed and embarrassed everyday all because last Friday night while sharing a passionate kiss with my love, some guy thought he had the right to interrupt and invade my personal space by aggressively smacking my ass at a bar. It was an event nether one of us wanted to attend but our friend told us it would be an adventure and in all the negative ways you can think it sure was. I have a very hard time being around men. When it comes down to it I’m sure it’s because they are stronger then I am and that makes me very uncomfortable because I know all they are capable of. That night proved it all to me first hand. I turned the corner to confront him fuming mad that he thought he could do what he pleased, I pushed him yelling what he thought he was doing, he pushed me back so much harder then I could bare as a stumbled down .. Me .. Down because I wasn’t strong enough to defend myself, in front of all these people my pride couldn’t take it, I stood and pushed him back with all I had and it hardly made a dent, he wasn’t pleased with that as he came back at me swinging. He punched the left side of my face giving me a bloody lip and a bruised face. I fell again this time into tables and other furniture, I broke my ankle to the point of surgery. I had to sit there on the floor for several moments while the cops came and the ems … I tried to stand and I couldn’t. So many times in this past week I have been forced to say “I can’t” and “I couldn’t” it makes me shiver with disappointment. My pride was crushed as they had to lift me out and past all these people. The cop was an angel and nothing less then, he arrested him and convinced me not to worry about my pride that he should be ashamed not me. I sat in the back of the ambulance, I could see my love speaking to the cops and looking at me with so much sadness in her eyes. The hospital bumped my surgery for 6 whole days, hardly explaining anything to me and treating me so much worse then you’d expect. We had to travel an hour each way for days. I’m missing work an so has she while being there for me. This experiences has been one of the worst of my life and it continues to have constant obstacles. We are in the process of moving and I can’t help at all, the night we came back from the hospital we spent the night in bed crying together from pure frustration, anger and sadness. I can only imagine how hard it was for her to see me like that and to have so much be on her. It’s so hard for me to watch helplessly as I’m sure it was for her. He was charged with hate crime and bias crime which helps our case .. But I doubt he will ever have to feel even half of what we have and continue too. This is going to be a three month recovery period and I can only hope that we can grow and be stronger in-spite of his attempt to break us. I do hope some of you read this .. And if something similar has occurred to any of you I hope you know that you are not alone and as long as we stand united they won’t be able to bring us down.
I’m still enraged that this happened, and that it’s affected you in all the ways that it has. If it happened for nothing else, let it be to highlight the immense amount of support and love you have around you. I only wish that I could have been there in that moment with you. You’re a sweetheart and you’re the last person who would have deserved to have this happen to them. I hope you have a speedy recovery, I miss you tons!
Be the person Uncle Iroh knows you can be
