Years ago I learnt to walk, now I’m doing the same thing all over again. Funny ain’t it ! it’s something you never expect to lose……… You can though – It’s easy. At the same time you can forget how to, or lose the ability to, do all sorts of things you did before. You don’t mean to – YOU JUST DO. Most frustrating really !
I spent 75 years learning how to do all sorts of things – fortunately it doesn’t seem to be progressing at the same pace now – otherwise I wouldn’t half be old come the end.
Although it seems to be slow, and IS slow by my standards, progress continues to be steady. I find new things everyday that are improving for me. Some of it is pure improvement, and some can be attributed to learning how to do things more efficiently. So I wasn’t so clever as I thought I suppose.
I have just celebrated the 1 year anniversary of my stroke, next will be the anniversary’s of coming home – losing the first 5 stone in weight – and more things than you could shake a rats a**e at – optimist aren’t I.
As you can see, I intend to live a long and happy life – STARTING TODAY – see if I don’t.
If I can, so can everybody else. It just takes a cocktail of determination, mixed with a hint of self-confidence and emotion and just a smidge of anger to stir the pot with.
WATCH THIS SPACE ! – I’m on the way……………….
