Celebrate: Slowly But Surely


Not sure which of the girls in the photo resembles me the most. Of course, I'm definitely older than both of them, but after my stroke, walking has been as hard as if I were a little kid walking on shifting sands. Whether I'm on a street or even in my flat, I have to think about every step and compensate for chronic dizziness.  

But I've never fallen, and I am improving, getting stronger and more stable, slowly but surely, and that's worth celebrating!

You can do it! A little bit of walking every day will make you stronger and stronger. Just maybe don't try it on the beach yet.... But that's definitely something to aim for!

That is so worth celebrating! I love seeing your posts, knowing that day-by-day you're getting better. You've got great determination - you've got this :-)

Cheers - Ellen

I think you are doing great! Nothing like what you went through will change in a blink...it takes hard work which you been doing plus will power and guts! If you want to read a good biography, pick one on Patricia Neal. She was a pretty big actress and won an Oscar in HUD. She had a major affair with Gary Cooper whom she loved. She married Roald Dahl and had children with him. One died of the measles, another was hit by a car and suffered brain damage and when Patricia was 6 months pregnant, she suffered 3 consecutive strokes and almost died. She gave birth to a healthy child but she was told she would neve4 walk or talk again. On top of it all, her live in nurse ( something like that) started sleeping with her husband..nice guy. In less than 10 years she was walking, talking and starred in the TV movie The Waltons which started the tv show. You might find her an inspiration

You need a hand to hold on to! Here's one, and it seems others are extending theirs as well.
