In my last post I said that I try to do one new thing everyday. I did enough new things for the first time in 7 weeks yesterday that I should be good for a week.
Yesterday was the first time I carried groceries up the stairs for the first time without using the handrail. I also cleaned the inside of my Dad’s van. That may not sound very exciting, but it was the first time in a VERY long time the inside of his van has been clean. He’ll probably get better gas mileage because I vacuumed & washed several pounds of dirt out of it.
Yesterday was also the first time in 7 weeks that I actually felt like I did something useful at home instead of sitting on the couch. And that my friends is a very important first in my recovery.
