I’m just back from what was a busy and fun but frustrating weekend. Just before I ruptured my Achilles we had booked a family trip to Center Parcs for Easter. As it wasn’t possible to move it we went despite the fact that I couldn’t actually do anything there but added a Mobility scooter to allow me to get around. The scooter itself was fun but it was massively frustrating to watch everyone else having fun and not be able to join in.
I did come away with a positive though. While Iwas there I showered without a chair - what a relief! I’m still NWB but I’ve found that resting my foot on the floor takes so much strain off of the other leg it makes it possible to balance with my hair and eyes full of shampoo. The first thing I did this morning was remove the chair from my shower at home. Its bliss to be showering standing up again
It’s now 8 days till I have this cast removed and start the path to normality. I can’t wait!
