I went to Bensham Hospital where a physio I'd never met did an assessment. She was impressed by the muscle in my legs and the level of control I could show, She thought that perhaps we were pushing things too far and too fast. I explained that I had set a year-long timescale for what I wanted to achieve and she agreed that that seemed reasonable.
Then we got the crutches.
With a physio on each side and the crutches on my arms I did it.
It was slow, ungainly and not very confident but I did it. I have a new exercise plan geared towards getting back on my feet. In the words of my physio - I have potential.
Did I mention? I WALKED!
