Well it is if you hit it, believe me – I know from bitter experience.
A couple of weeks ago I was feeling good. Off I went down to the shops – ON MY OWN ( for the first time )- got the paper and returned. Parked up in the store and dismounted – THEN IT ALL WENT WRONG – from a feeling of achievement I went from euphoria to agony, and I mean AGONY, I fell over and hit the side of the bungalow ( it’s O.k ) and bounced off to land on the hip region of my lower back on the concrete. The path did better than me. Here we are a couple of weeks later – the concrete shows no signs of the attack, I however am still suffering, the white hot pain is settling down, and I’ve learned to stop running before I can walk, serves me right for being cocky I suppose.
Apart from all the drama, life goes on. I still walk, albeit far too slowly for me, and I am making progress in other areas. Planning some maintenance on my scooter to get ready for returning to work before very long. Stroke ….. WHAT STROKE !
Whoops SORRY, I must be less cocky – strokes are a real bummer – rehabilitation is worse, and so time consuming, still it’s only been 10 months and I am winning, which makes me so lucky, and if I can do it ……. so can others. Go for it, all it takes is self belief mixed with a modicum of determination, and of course the help of a really good carer, and the love of a truly supportive family.
Remember … believe … go for it … and don’t fall over ….. it’s easy if you say it quickly.
See you soon
