It is almost three years since I first became bedridden. It has been a terrible ordeal. The improvements that have taken place have been huge. I no longer feel terribly ill. I just feel a bit unwell. All the pain and suffering is over. I just wish I could function a bit better. Still getting up for a few hours most days and managing a ten minute walk outside.
In spite of all the progress I am still not sure if I will make a full recovery. Logic tells me that there is no reason why it should not happen given the progress so far but deep down I fear some of the damage may be permanent. Only time will tell.
My long-term memory is quite bad but my short-term memory seems pretty good again. I am playing online computer games as well as doing word puzzles the old-fashioned way. I do some crosswords but not so good at them any more. Sudoku is an awful struggle but I have always found it difficult. Fed up with daytime TV already. Occasionally there is a good programme.
Hopefully this time next year I will be functioning much better than I am just now. I do hope so.
