I’m feeling rather excited as normality will be commencing from next week. I was in a car accident back in June leaving me in rather a bad way, I had suffered nerve damage and had a loss of feeling down the left side of my body. I was in a wheelchair for months, I was having intense Physio every week for months and I was needing carer’s to come in and help me, I was also under a specialist being kept a close eye on.
With all of this going on I done my best to not let it get on top of me or get me down, I won’t lie there was the odd days where it did get to me and I did find it extremely hard not being able to do day-to-day things that I was once doing before my accident, but I soon found the fight in me and I turned that emotion into determination and I done all the exercises set for me to do by my Physio and I done it for my kids and husband.
I am feeling so excited and extremely lucky to be getting back to how life was before my accident, It has been a very long road of recovery for me and a mix of emotions all round for us all but we have been building my strength back up for me to be able to walk again un-aided and it has taken a lot for me to get back behind the wheel of a car again but I have done it, I am here I want my life back to how it was before, I want to be able to get in the car and go to work and help provide again for my family.
So from next week our life should start getting back to normal and words can’t describe how excited I am, I am feeling so lucky to go through what I have been through and to walk away with what is looking like an injured shoulder and nothing more serious, all I will be needing worst ways is Physio on my shoulder, but that isn’t going to effect my life, I am just feeling thankful that’s all I have walked away with and it’s nothing more serious.
My return to work will be built upon gradually, I will be returning back to work on a part-time basis to start off with and building back up from there over time as Ian don’t want me taking on too much to soon so we had a meeting with my manager who agreed so that is what will be happening.
I have been so lucky to have the support that I have had from my amazing friends and family, I couldn’t have got through it all without them there keeping me going and help keep my spirits up, especially Ian and my kid’s. What I am looking forward to the most is taking the pressure of Ian, he has been absolutely fantastic, he has been my rock through it all, the up’s and the down’s. Last year was a rollercoaster year for us so we have our fingers crossed that this year has something much nicer in store for us.
