Small things becoming BIG things…

I was never the smiley type when having my picture taken ... pulling faces do just fine :P

 You know, Its incredible how we under estimate our body and how important each part of it is.
Everyday routines became a struggle for me and i started to realise how your body works and how it reacts when one part of it is hurt.

For example, getting up from lying down was impossible for me and I needed people to help me up. Standing from a sitting position took a long time, for I had to use the right muscles or my back would go into spasm. Turning on my side from lying on my back was another challenge because if I made one wrong move or tried too hard or took too long, my muscles would go into spasm. Walking was fascinating for I felt different muscles in my back move with every step I took and I was amazed at how many muscles are at work with one simple step.

I had to be careful when going to the toilet because I had to use the right leg muscles to sit down and up again, brushing my teeth was hard because of the movements you make with your arms and I also couldn’t bend over to spit in the sink. Climbing up the stairs was also another challenge that tired me out a lot. From bathing to simply sitting, to carrying things (light things), to not picking something up after dropping it because I was unable to bend over.
Everything, everything became a challenge and I had to think two or three times before doing something.
It was very frustrating !!!
