My First Steps of 2015!!

Monday, January 19, 2015

I am aware that I've been taking small steps inside the house without my wallet, and I've also been doing a tiny bit of Spring cleaning. But today I finally was able to go outside & WALK MY TRAIL IN MY YARD!!! I'm excited yet exhausted as well. I knew not to push it so I sat on the porch with my dad - he was overseeing my walk (ha!) - and took a break in between. I even raised up the handles on my walker so that I could stand straighter when I pushed it along. I did NOT lean on my walker as I wandered my trail. I pushed it. It was more there as a safety net for me if I got too tired of standing up straight. But mom (who was watching from my bedroom window) said I was walking straight up. She said I was walking better today than my last month of walking before I had to quit! For me and my family, this is amazing to see & for me to hear. I am healing. I am proud of myself for the first time in many, many months. I am pushing the grey clouds out of my brain & not letting the depression keep me down. I am walking. As long as it's not too muddy, I will walk one lap every day until I work my way back up to the miles I was walking before I was brought down by infections from surgery gone wrong. I am me again!! I am making my own breeze again! (Now I just need to get all the dog poo out of my trail!!) Peace, Love & Walking Upright, Angela
