i think I may be slipping back into the denial stage…
i was diagnosed six years ago when I lost use of my right arm and some use of my right leg etc. I slowly regained a lot of use back but it’s left residual damage. Fatigue, as it is for many remains a big problem. After a week in hospital last year I felt a bit defeated and stopped trying so hard to beat it.
However a new year and renewed enthusiasm to try and get a bit fitter. I use a FES machine for my right leg although after a forty minute walk my core strength starts to go and my foot starts to drags (seeing physio about that soon) and I have to sit down and have a two hour recovery, resting my eyes.
Sooooo I thought I would try beginners Yoga at my sports hall to do some strengthening exercises. However they were fully booked… so having always wanted to do tap thought I would give it a try, as they had spaces. I spent most the session propping up the wall as my balance is awful but I thought it might be fun and good exercise to help me lift my foot. On the plus side I couldn’t be worse (unless I had another relapse). My brain can’t relay the message to my right foot quick enough!
What I guess I want to ask is, do you think it could help my foot and balance, can I retrain my brain…or will it never improve after all this time?
Gene Kelly I will most definitely never be…that I know! Lol
Thank you x
