Relearning to walk

It’s hard to imagine that walking around your home could be such a difficult task until it is. When I awakened from the nightmare I experienced over the last three months, I couldn’t lift my legs or arms. All of my muscles became decommissioned.

I can not explain how frustrating and frightening it is to be completely helpless. I could not turn my body to the left or right. To lift my hands was nearly impossible.

I have been working tirelessly rehabbing my body with physical therapists. Believe it or not, I am walking again and slowly regaining my strength.

I never thought I’d be in the situation I currently find myself in, but I had to face the fact that I had to relearn to walk and perform other physical activities that most people take for granted.

Staying in a hospital bed for 3 months will cause all your muscles to become decommissioned. I am determined to get stronger and back to the way I was before my illness.

Thanks for reading and visiting NoFakrNews.

    John, it must be a shocking feeling to have to endure such helplessness!
    I remember my husband’s doctor telling me that the first time they sat him up in his hospital bed after coming off the ventilator they needed a number of staff to accomplish it. He could not hold himself up. I would imagine it was the same for you.

    But now my husband can walk miles.
    It will happen for you too, John. You have already made much progress. 👍
    It will happen before you know it! 🙂
