So just over 7 years after my injury, I have improved immensely from where I was a few months after my injury after the worst had subsided.
Like most of us, I muddle along and make the most of things. The one thing I have never managed to live with is the random episodes of "Why did I do that or what was I thinking"
One of the most bizarre things is repeated tasks. where you have to do things like sorting things or doing a small process. Something like shelling peas; you have a pile of pods in the middle and a bowl for the peas to the left and bucket for the waste on the right. Simple pick a pod up, take the peas out and put them to the left and put the waste in the bucket to the right. Guaranteed before the end, I will start putting the peas in the waste bucket even though I may have got it right multiple times previously, something will trip and the process goes haywire. Why I have no idea, somewhat embarrassing and frustrating but not the end of the world.
Yesterday was another classic. I had a balance wobble and knocked over a glass vase, which hit the floor and smashed. It was one of those times that I was padding about in my socks. Off I went to put on something on my feet.
Right shoe on, then the left but it didn't feel right. Take it off, put it back on, same thing. Adjust my socks and the tongue in the shoe. Same thing ! Take it back off try it again, same thing. Then I wonder, had my children whom have a habit of borrowing my shoes temporarily but sometimes walk on them with the backs down, had been at them. Inspect the back of the shoe, plump it up, same problem. Begin getting resigned to throwing the pair out as I can't walk in these anymore. Inspect the shoe once more trying to work out what has gone wrong with this one because it looks perfectly fine. So I take the one off my right foot and start comparing them side by side - then there was that moment of clarity of thought and the penny drops - two right foot shoes from different pairs.
Whilst it may have been only a few minutes, it felt like ages. So here I am highly educated with lots of practical experience and can't get my shoes on the right feet !
Just shows the wacky consequences of a bump on the head.
