things i have to tell myself these days.

you are strong.
you are strong enough to handle this.

don’t call the insurance guy back yet if you don’t feel quite confident enough to answer his questions.  it’s ok.

it’s ok take naps.  and vicoden.  and baths.

it’s ok to feel worn out, emotional.

it’s ok if you can’t yet say the words, “i was hit by a car.”

you are strong.
you are strong enough to make it through this.

they (insurance peeps) aren’t going to take advantage of you because you are in control; you will get the money that you need.

it will just be a few weeks, then you’ll have new bike.

it’s ok if you cry when you see your old bike.  touch the bent places.  sit with it.  say goodbye.

you’re ok.
you’re strong.
you’re handling this exactly like you should be.

so take a nap.
