Today has been a good day. After a wee while of not feeling that great with many roadblocks that I felt I couldn’t get round, but today I got round one of those road blocks.
Since losing the feeling below my knee in my right leg I have felt so self conscious about walking with a stick and my appearance when walking as I often trip and fall as I just don’t know where my leg is unless I am looking at it and watching myself putting my foot down etc.
Today though I went to lacrosse coaching as I had felt so down. I plucked up the courage and went along with my stick. The team didn’t even ask me questions about it. They were just really happy and positive about me coming down and coaching them again. I had been sending in coaching plans for others to lead the sessions which is not great but it gave them some structure to sessions.
It was hard work and I am exhausted now but I am so glad I put my worries and self doubt aside and just went for it. I aim to get back to coaching every week. To do this I will need to make some adaptations to my days to allow for rest before and after as my leg is in agony with shooting pain going through my upper leg like someone is pushing white hot pokers down it but it was worth it.
I feel so positive tonight and on a real high after just getting over my own self doubt.
So today was a good day!!!
