I now fortunately have mainly good days, even so proficiency and abilities vary, giving spells of lesser cooperation from my limbs, and occasionally my mind as well.
This woven image portrayd the legacy of uncertainty I still have about balance and physical competence.
With each step, any surety about how the foot will land, and whether the leg will support me is still a constant question.
So, one learns to live with, and accomodates to, a degree of physical and cerebral uncertaintl.
I remember the hospital consultant in the first few days, saying "a stroke is a life changing experience".
Not everything has been merely negative, one learns from such a forceful episode and there are positives.
Some are slight while others are major.
Life itself is more ddeply valued, one rejoices in and esteems the ordinary more profoundly.
