I am currently in Bali – lucky me, right?
I scrimped and saved for 5 years so I could have 4 weeks of warmth, massages and relaxation. After 5 days, I fell and broke my ankle and leg – go me! Now I have to return home to have an operation.
These things happen, right?
This is not what has me pissed off (at least, at the moment).
I have been a member of a particular fibro site on FB for at least 2 years. I post pertinent information, answer questions when I can and so on – you know what I mean. There are also a variety of other types of posts from members, like
***names have been removed to protect identities
You get the idea, right?
So, today (after being blocked by FB for a month (long story but it involves this article) which explains why you have not heard from me) I posted the following:
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MY BAD LUCK!
I have a fabulous 3 bedroom villa in Bali until August 23rd but (lucky me!) I have just broken my leg and have to come home.
So…does anyone want a cheap holiday in Bali?
- Situated on a quiet street (Jalan Kresna), right on the border of Seminyak and Legian.
- 3 bedrooms – all with their own bathrooms and king-sized beds!
- Fabulous private pool – and we’ll leave you all our pool lounges!
- Lovely host – Benjamin.
- Walking distance to most places (if you have 2 legs):
- 2.2kms to Bali Deli
- 2kms to Double 6 beach (via Jalan Arjuna (Double 6 street))
- 2.1kms to Carrefour
The villa is advertised on AirB’n’B if you would like to check it out.
DM for any further details.
It was deleted.
You would think that there might be some compassion for a fellow fibro sufferer; but no! the post had nothing to do with fibro so into the ether it was sent; despite the last four approved posts (above) not really associated with fibro, either.
Now, I am probably over-reacting but I am sitting in Bali besides a gorgeous pool that I cannot swim in, I am about 10 minutes away from some absolutely fabulous bargains but I cannot go shopping, I saved enough money to have a massage everyday but, guess what? I can’t do that either. I am stuck either on a lounge or in my bed at my villa with my mother (who has her arm in a sling after a shoulder operation – I was supposed to be looking after her), her partner (who is legally blind and more than partially deaf) and my uncle (the last man standing!) So I’m feeling pretty hard done by – wouldn’t you?
As such, and I know that they don’t give a shit, I am no longer a member of that group.
If you feel like venting today, please feel free to do so in the comments below – just let it all out!
P.S. Anyone want a cheap holiday?
