Haven’t posted this in the success stories section, cos I’m saving that for when I am completely better (ha ha, maybe that’s not going to happen, but I like to dream).
But I had a small success yesterday…
Last year I had terrible spells of room-spinning vertigo, lasting hours, and taking a couple of weeks to recover each time, during which I needed a walking stick, and then I had several months of false motion/visual vertigo etc. I was used to being active, and every time I had a spell where I felt a bit better I do go out for walks, and even running sometimes. I think forcing myself to do stuff even though I felt unsteady doing it really helped my recovery (plus my medication of course).
The last few months I’ve been well enough to get back to some kind of regular fitness regime, and yesterday I ran a 5 km charity run for Cancer Research UK. It’s always an emotional thing for me, as one of my children had cancer when he was younger, but this year was especially good celebrating his recovery and also being well enough to be able to run the course again, as last year I had to miss doing it.
I just wanted to share this small thing, to perhaps encourage other people that they can get back to a kind of normality.
