I think that title is going to be a bit of a misnomer. I still don't think I have absolutely realised the extent of my limitations.
I scoot along day to day doing a bit here and a bit there. Take the painkillers to help me function. Sit and watch TV a lot. Spend so much time on my own it's driving me mad. I like my own company but this is getting ridiculous.
So, I've had a busy month, pushed myself a lot more than normal then WHAM it hit me like a sledgehammer yesterday. Had to retire to bed mid afternoon, couldn't hold my head up, felt dreadful. An hour lying down after a drink and extra painkillers and I was able to negotiate the evening, then blissful sleep.
It's made me realise that this really is for life, I know I've said I accept it but we don't really mean it do we? And I probably still don't accept it. I'll carry on pushing myself till I crash and burn, pick myself up and do it all over again.
4 years and I've still not learnt.
By the way the acupuncture has been helping, some of those niggly sensations I was having have all but gone, my energy levels are so much higher, that's why I crashed and burnt so spectacularly yesterday. And that awful feeling I had of constantly wearing a hood so my vision was limited and head felt so pressured has gone. I'm going to start Tai Chi next week, I am assured it will help my balance, watch this space!
Well, the day is calling, will have a bath, I need one daily to warm me and give me a kick start.
Will come back again soon.
