Out of the blue on Thursday I received a call from a Helen in the PR team 'they'd had a cancellation and could I make it by 2pm Friday to meet them'?
Of course I said yes please.
As I was a hundred miles away at the time it was a bit stressful getting there in time because I couldn't leave before 11.30. Sadly my 2 & 1/2 hour journey took over 3 hours so I arrived late to apologise, not expecting them to see me. I was really stressed.
The 3 of them were so kind. A physio, a student physio and an OT. Unbelievably patient.
Anyway i did the tests and I'm joining the group, starts this week, Tues & Fri for 6 weeks. Yahoo, I'm so excited to get the opportunity, thought I would have to be more ill.
I've already made a start. I always used to run up the escalators on the Tube (only 3 years ago ) but of course don't now. Last night I went to a show in the West End. 3 times when confronted with an 'up' escalator I took a very deep breath and went for it, (walking up I mean, not running). I made it half way each time! Mind over matter?
I don't know but I did feel a lot better for it during the night when I wasn't SOB when I got up. Been struggling a bit lately with SATs going down to 90 during night.
I know the exercise will be good for me and set me on a good path. Hopefully it will keep the serotonin levels up too so I won't get low (I've felt myself slipping lately) and start me on good habits.
All in all a very good end to my week when I actually earned some money too !
Roll on Tuesday. P xxxx
