Recently my mobility has been improving quite increasingly and I’ve been getting more and more confident about being on my feet. Since the stroke I have been using a seat in the shower (too much info?) as I wasnt stable enough to stand up for a prolonged period of time whilst washing my hair etc. I’ve come home for a couple of weeks to see my family and I just decided that I wanted to try standing up in the shower. Somehow I just felt like I could do it and so I just did. I guess its kind of like with my walking, I just have this feeling that its the right time to try going outside without aids or that its time to start using public transport. I’m so happy that I get these feelings that make me not hold myself back now that I dont have anyone to say “you’re ready”
I’m SO happy I dont need to sit down whilst showering now. I HATED sitting in the shower, although its handy for shaving legs, imagine sittting on a plank everytime you want a shower, its so uncomfortable and has even previously bruised the back of my legs. Very pleased to see the back of it.
