This is Going to Be a Long One..
On the 8th of March, I was involved in a near fatal Accident that involved 3 motorists. Its been playing in my head, “SHOULD I WRITE OR NOT, WRITE NAHH…”
I summoned the courage today after a friend escorted me for a High — End meeting that required a Face to Face and a demo of how [At the End of This].
A few concerned parties reached out after a week of absence online to ask if I’m okay. well for the last 5 days I almost lost it, YEAH. I’m trying
Here is what most people fear to admit when incapacitated;
Limping to the toilet in the night, the fear of falling in the dark, the discomfort of sleeping with one leg exposed, the feeling that you are now disabled, and or can’t do anything even when you try.
Its been tough, so what happened, where was I going and why not rest. I have come to terms with the latter but learn to work remotely in a “New form” of sorts on my bed because I could typing something, and the meds kick in and sleep sets in.
Its uncomfortable, not to mention sweating profusely at night and loss of time. I’ll be honest I’m not used to this. I am used to controlling the environment, going all out, and not procrastinating on tasks.
Its tough, looking at your toes dangling, blood specifically dark coated blood flowing profusely and the thought that I wouldnt make it, and fainting at the hospital, waking up to doctors fighting to put the foot back in position and stitching your….it draw tears from my eyes.
Well here are a few lessons I learned that I’d like to share with you.
1. Pray. Everyday thanking God for the gift of Life.
2. Never Underestimate the Power of Family. It doesnt matter if its your nuclear family, spouse, workmates. They have over committed to seeing me heal and recuperate.
3. Reach Out. I know many close and stubborn people here who stay quiet with their situations because they think their communities will never empathize nor sympathize with them. Look you’re human. Its okay to doubt yourself and others, but give them a chance. I am grateful to everyone in one way or another who visited, reached out and continue to support me.
4. Follow the medical regimen. In the beginning, I looked at the tabs, the doctor recommended; “This one take at, that one take at,….” But Im done, and they’ve added more for the headaches, and bacterial infection. I am faithfully executing.
5. Buy an Insurance Policy X3!
6. Invest in Personal development. Family and friends have come in handy but there are moments you’re mind will elope. Had it not been for the Mindset programs I have, I don’t know how I’d get the courage to share this.
7. Its okay to feel vulnerable.
8. Be Grateful. It could be saying thank you to everyone, everyday we don’t know when our time is up. People are going through things they had on here through photos, memes, smiles and yet deep inside, they’re drowning.
9. Make an Effort. If you know or have someone struggling with mental health or health in general, work, business and you have the ability to help or support them or love them, make an effort.
I’ve tried to have physiotherapy sessions in an effort that I can shorten the time to walk again but hehehe, ehh I have to be patient with the process. I will keep trying.
10. If you can or have the ability to. Automate your processes and Systems. True there are things I can do at the comfort of my bed but mostly because of the access to the AI.
Ohh, about this pic, today, I was heading over to one of the banks to demonstrate how deep learning and AI can improve the customer journey and transactional value of banks.
Doc says it will take between 30–60 days to walk normally again, well……..
If I can’t or don’t respond in time to your comments, know that I am sleeping, I will make an effort family.
Thank you and a Blessed Week
