Determined To Make The best Of Everything I Can

Cowcaddens Streetscape.

Alasdair Gray.

Today has been yet another grey, misty and cold day which is a shame as it would have been good to have a bright, sunny day.

We have only had grey, misty, cold weather for the last two weeks, but I guess as 

 it is only the beginning of February that this is normal for this time of year.  

Today I had a good session with my excellent physiotherapist Mathilde, we both noticed again how difficult the exercises are for my right arm.  

Nevertheless it is important for me that I have the two physiotherapy sessions with Mathilde as well as doing my arm exercises every morning.

I have been noticing recently that my arms are not functioning well at all; today I could not do very much with my right arm.

Very scary that my arm functions are so much weaker every week, last week I could still just about touch my head.

This week I just managed to touch my forehead but only just, really hope that I  can still do that next week.

I learned to live with being so handicapped, despite that I am very scared at the latest developments.

I am determined to make the best of everything I can

Hi Herrad,

Your optimism always shines through. I wish you didn't have to live this way, and am glad you have Richie, the dogs and friends.
