I had a good day at physical therapy today; I walked around the gym with just a cane and minimal assistance. My PT followed behind me with my chair in case I needed to sit down, and there were a few moments where things got wonky, but I didn't need it. I made it back to my starting point and sat down with a happy laugh, "Take that CIDP!"
And my grip strength is around 80 pounds, which is near normal according to The Drake Center.
I had been feeling down the last few weeks. Maybe not down, just unenthusiastic.
I guess I just needed a win.
The physical and occupational therapists I've worked with have all done a phenomenal job; I am proof of that.
Lastly, I would like to share The Third Step Prayer I found a copy in a Bible I bought many years ago. My favorite line? "Relieve me of the bondage of self so I may better do Your will."
