Be Here and Now and Be Positive.
Yesterday I finally sat for 30 minutes and did my leg exercises with the Motomed, it went very well.
Was quite tired afterwards and happy to be back in bed, we ate our dinner and relaxed watching TV.
Really nice and relaxed and ready to sleep when we discovered the bed would not go down flat so I could go to sleep.
Richie pressed the green button on the plug nothing and unplugged the plug, did both lots of times but nothing happened.
Started to feel very uncomfortable as the position was causing too much pressure on the back of my neck.
I was just saying we either call the emergency telephone number of the company the bed is from or I take a sleeping tablet.
At that moment the bed went down thanks to Richie not giving up and pressing the hand set for over ten minutes.
One more bag of thc and I went to sleep, the dogs managed to stay in the bedroom so we got woken up three times by Spike shaking himself, his ears sound like pistol; shots.
Luckily got back to sleep each time which was brilliant, think that was because I had finally sat in the chair.
Friday I had been too tired and Saturday we forgot and Sunday I did not want too do it, claimed it was too late.
So yesterday almost did not want to again but Richie persuaded me it was good if I did sit and it was good.
Even more aware that I will have to take it very slow and easy and take my time building up how long I can sit.
Now I have done it I feel confident and will sit everyday, feels good also deciding to go at my own pace with no deadlines to worry me.
Not having sat until yesterday had upset me quite abit, realised that this morning after a good night sleep, that it had stopped me from sleeping.
Thursday night I had no problem sleeping but did have a problem Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Have to remember that this happens and make sure to make my good intentions reality before I start to critize myself and give my self confidence a knock.
Need to build myself up and not take myself down, really be here and now and be positive and then I can and will enjoy my life.
