Side by side with Alisha, who helped raise me to my feet!
Today was an unbelievably proud day indeed! I hate showing off but if you have been following me you know me pretty well by now….I ain’t like that!
I think of others who are still fighting and know exactly what they’re thinking: “Will I ever get there?” “I can’t see any change.” “I just want my life back!” You know I know how it feels; that’s why I wanted to share this with you.
Do you remember Alisha Anderson, my physio from Fiona Stanley Hospital? Well!! Get this!!!!
As you know I was just a paralysed dead-weight when I was first wheeled into her gym. Well yesterday I was standing side by side with the great Alisha – BOTH OF US!!!! – collecting an award together from the Stroke Foundation (WA) as a “Improving Life After Stroke” finalist!!
To you guys it’s just a story, but to me it was a realisation of just how far I’d come. Just unbelievable!!! I just had to get a picture, and I got a real corker!! (See above) Just goes to show you can keep knocking down the rule books, ey!
It’s funny really – the rehab started with Alisha and my journey has kind of ended with Alisha.
Again I didn’t expect that!!! Expect the unexpected when you give it all you got and never ever give in!!!
Thanks to the National Stroke Foundation (WA) for the finalists award – You guys are awesome!!!
Just want to say a big ‘Thanks’ to everyone who has been following and supporting me since I first began this blog. I’m planning to take a break from blogging for a while as I’ll be busy with my health care assistant course and generally getting on with life! Feel free to email me with any comments or concerns and I’ll do my best to reply. In the meantime, you can check out my story on my latest video!
