My weekend was filled with thoughts that I need to blog out. Seeing someone’s reflection in the mirror yesterday took me back to my struggling to look at my own reflection in the mirror, whilst growing up.
Over the years I have challenged myself to look in the mirror so I’m not as bad as I used to be. I tend to consciously focus on what I need to look at, so the problem doesn’t bother me. My other thought turns to exercise. I haven’t been able to exercise for the last four or five days, which has made a difference to the spasms in my leg.
Walking around this weekend in Edinburgh has been tough for me. I need to experience these times because Cerebral Palsy is part of my life. When I constantly remind my family that I need them to slow down on our walks, it acts as a trigger for the thoughts that I have.
I hate having to remind them, but I walk at snail’s pace so it’s inevitable. Perhaps they need to remember for themselves, then I wouldn’t feel so bad. Working on my usual optimism, I know tomorrow will be better.
