    One Year Today

    Can't believe that today I have been paralyzed for a whole year.

    I had a bleed, so was fully conscious throughout. It was about this time - 9.30 am that the paralysis began.
    It was a truly awful day. But today is different. A year ago I never imagined I could ever feel happy, or not scared, or stop crying. But now, I am fine.

    It feels a little strange for me today - but not upsetting. I think I expected to feel a bit tearful today.

    I hope you are able to embrace today as a milestone in your recovery & what you have to look forward to. As they used to say in the ads..."You've come a long way baby...." Keep your chin up & celebrate today as a gift. You've got a great attitude towards today & life in general. It may get more difficult later in the day, that's to be understood. Enjoy a drink at your local pub this evening. Feel free to come to us for love, support, laughter or tears anytime.

    That is a great attitude to have Keps, keep that up and there is no knowing what you can achieve.

    Nice one Keps. Life goes on. Live it. I feel the same. Not a year for me until December but I'm not dreading it - I know how far I've come since cheating death. Have one for me!!

    Glad the day is going well for you. Keep yourself busy and keep on thinking of the good things in life. Good attitude does wonders, as you know.

    Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. It's wonderful to have your support.

    Seeing all your comments actually nearly brought tears to my eyes - I was so touched. So, I haven't snivelled because it's the first anniversary of my injury - but because you lot are just too nice!

    Aw, you're a great bunch of people!

    Keps.
