Well OK, I don’t use my cane at home, it has been that way for a while now but what was cool was, I went out to eat last night and I though “you know what? I am going cane-less!”. Haha I was kind of insecure at first but I just went for it an you know what? I didn’t have any problems! It felt… Weird… Like I was missing something, forgetting something. That cane has become an extension of my body so not having it was like not having my arm. Also, when I was walking around, I did not know what to do with my hand! I forgot how to “properly” walk in public because I am so used to that “crutch”. Don’t get me wrong, it felt good, it felt, normal… Whatever that is!
I still need to smooth out my gate but hey, I walked on my own, in public, without a cane, first time in like a year! I am so glad I am on Tysabri! It is letting me work towards a better health! Yay! But… I am not sure what to do with all that money I raised with the fundraiser? I put it all in a Paypal account (As putting it in the bank would shut off my benefits since I have a $2,000 cap) so it has just been sitting there. I don’t think I am going to need those stem cells anymore but 3 grand? That is a lot of money! I wish I could just return it all but it doesn’t look like I can, so, what the heck do I do?? Any advice would be appreciated. I will post on my Facebook page today!
So today I have to take care of a few errands and then?.. I am not sure, it is way to cold for a walk! It was 22F (-5C) last I checked! Plus there is a very light breeze so, that is not good for a walk! I would have thought otherwise a year ago but now if my legs get too cold the spasticity kicks into over drive and it has been pretty unnoticeable lately so I would like to keep it that way! Just wanted to make note of the cane thing! I still need it but I think I can slowly start working on braking away from it as my balance improves, we will see!
