I've been mostly housebound and often bedbound since I became chronically ill in 2001. It took me many years to make peace with my new life. It wasn't the life I was expecting but it's the life I've got, so here are my top 10 reasons I don't mind being housebound.
Number 10: Airport security.
Number 9: GPS not needed to find my way from the bed to the fridge.
Number 8: Self-feeding at will.
Number 7: Endless Law and Order re-runs keep my lawyering skills sharp.
Number 6: No line for the loo.
Number 5: No more guilt about not using gym membership that I never used before I got sick.
Number 4: No need for lame excuse for skipping high school reunion.
Number 3: Growing fond of one-way conversations.
Number 2: Unlimited sick leave.
And the Number 1 reason I don't mind being housebound...
