julie.1 Posted August 28, 2013 Share Posted August 28, 2013 Five weeks on and here are some things I am happy to celebrate: Sending the wheelchair back to the shop Having a bit of appetite back and eating 'normal' meals with my family Being off the drugs (except a bit of paracetamol and occasional tramadol) Walking (more like staggering at times, but hey...) along the sea front to buy ice cream! Being able to get up from a chair without help Taking a shower in private Being in the garden with my family Managed a day at work yesterday, but am shattered and not too good today. It was an achievement none the less! Still got plenty to work on, but I'm learning to be patient and pleased with progress so far The one thing I've learned from this site is that we are all recovering differently and at very different speeds. It's a bit like the kids at Christmas with 'how many sleeps til Santa?' - I wonder how many sleeps until I can drive again, exercise again, have the energy to socialise again...... Just for now it feels enough to still be here and able to enjoy the sunshine on my back Julie xxx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
