Keep your eyes forwards you are almost there,
Don’t look back you’ll give yourself a scare.
Moving forwards is as hard as going back ,
But the future is unknown the last few years have been crap.
One hand at a time just pull yourself higher,
Til’ your whole body’s in pain and your lungs are on fire.
You’ll get there and see the world from a different view,
All of a sudden you won’t feel so blue.
It’s really difficult when you have a chronic illness, condition or accident that causes disabilities.
I’ve made no secret about the fact I’m unhappy and fustrated with the body I’m in but I guess that’s natural to feel aggrieved when you can’t do what you used to be able to do etc.
Although it’s really difficult try not to compare lives . That was then this is now.
Everytime you look back and compare to your old life before you got sick then you will feel disappointed.
You have got what you have look forwards and look for new adventures and new things to try. Perhaps look for new clubs to join. Go to the gym do just a little and build it up. Buy a handbike . Adapt things.
If there’s one thing I’ve leant is that you’ve got to be pro active in finding things and adapting things for your family and you as there aren’t very many functional support services out there.
Take care of yourself and each other.
