When was a time you needed assistance with something that seemed unmentionable at the time? A situation that you would not have been able to get through without tangible support?

A few years ago I had a simple surgery done on my shoulder. However I had a terrible time coming out of the anesthesia. Seriously, for hours after the surgery I did not know my elbow from my knee. Ambitiously, I got out of bed and tried to head to the nearest toilet, dressing gown wide open, unmentionables all hanging out. My roommate, thankfully, took the lead and helped me get to the toilet, held me up while I did my business and handed me toilet paper when I was done (because of course the toilet paper dispenser was on the side of my no-longer functioning left arm). This is only one example of the countless times that individuals have helped me through Unmentionable situations in which I am forever thankful for their help and kindness.
