Weekly Recovery Update 5/24
This week was an up and down week and I’m happy to say that my walks are getting so much better.
Before I would start to feel anxiety and I’d go on to someone’s lawn and I would feel comfortable. But the last week I made a genuine effort to embrace the fact that I’m going to have some anxiety and I went with it.
Starting off small I would walk a street on the grass and then step of onto the road for half a street. And then I took it a step further and stepped on to the sidewalk for one whole street and on the grass for half a street.
After I walked half of my route on the grass and half on the sidewalk until yesterday I walked the whole way on the sidewalk. I had tears of joy by this accomplishment. To some people it may seem small but not being able to enjoy a walk for 8 years is a big deal.
Riding in the car is a bit of an up and down, it just depends on the time, sometimes I’m able to go the distance but others I feel trapped and want to jump out of my skin.
In all this is a really good week for me and I’m so happy with my progress. You can do this I know you can.:)
What are some of your big steps?
