So its Wednesday and what have I do, achieved or what has been good and bad about this week so far.
Monday was a very busy day, my brother and sister in law came and picked me up and we went out for a few hours. It was such a good day out, the sun was shining and it was so good just to get out of the house for a while, feel the fresh air on my skin, the heat of the sun, something unless you have been inside the house for a while you may take for granted. I nice walk down Morecambe prom, just what I needed. Then came the afternoon, I had both S from physio come and I also had H from the OT’s come, and we (mainly) me managed to cook some tea for me and my wife, this is something which I haven’t done in a fair few months now and it really put a smile on my face. After we had completed making tea, they took me outside onto the street where we completed some physio outside.
This then brings me onto Tuesday, LO is back to nursery and the wife is back at work, it is going to be along day. Luckily my brother calls me in the morning to make sure I am OK, (he does this at least 3 times a day, he’s such a good egg) I get up and decide that I will try and do a few house hold chores, I collect the washing from upstairs and throw it over the banister at the top of the stairs. I get down stairs and jump into my chair and get the washing into the machine, I then make a brew and think about the rest of the day.
While I am thinking about the rest of the day I start thinking about work, money and the future, how hard is it going to be to get back into work, how will it work out with money? will I have to start looking at getting some help? and most importantly I need to understand how I am going to move forward.
The biggest thing for me over the next few days/weeks/months is to think about how this is gonna effect me long term? how I am going to live with this from now on? am I going to have to make some permanent changes to the things I do?
