It is officially the start of autumn but today has been a lovely, warm, sunny day. It was too nice to stay indoors so I decided to take the bus into the town centre. Had a coffee and a cake but it wasn’t a pleasure. I felt too unwell which was disappointing. The second half of August wasn’t as good as the first half and I had to postpone a dental appointment. I haven’t been able to think about getting my new spectacles. I am continuing to get up for several hours a day, some days I am up for about half the day so this is good progress. I am trying to walk about more inside my apartment and doing leg and arm exercises when I can. Anything to try to get back the use of my body. I don’t have the full range of movement in my neck or shoulders. Still have loss of sensation in my hands at times. Handwriting is getting a bit easier which is nice. Reading is still very difficult and I just stick to answering e-mails.
