I found these beautiful illustrated questions at Marc and Angel Hack Life and thought they would make wonderful blog prompts. I sure hope Marc and Angel don't mind me sharing these with you!
I can't believe that a year ago today I was sitting in the chair at our townhouse wondering if I was ever going to walk like a "normal person" again. I was using a walker to get around and could not really get out of the house for longer than an hour at a time. I didn't know if I would ever teach, ever work, ever participate in "real life" again. A year ago today there was a whole lot I couldn't do.
In the last year I have regained most of my bodily functionality, though I still can't walk long distances or run at all. Maybe, just maybe, I will get that back. We recently found out that my thyroid medication was WAY off. On top of causing some serious anxiety, minor depression, and extreme periods of fatigue, the thyroid MAY be able to explain the pain in my legs and feet. It's a long shot, but one I am excited about exploring.
