Five years ago, I had a mini-stroke caused by neck manipulations by a chiropractor, sued and got a settlement.
But...the most amazing thing is re-learning to walk! I went to Long Beach, New York yesterday and stood in front of the Atlantic, feet firmly on the sand and felt so thankful to stand there and know that I have the ability to walk. The stroke affected my balance and I am 98% recovered, but the two percent is still a doozy. I am losing weight and working at regaining even more balance. It is not perceptible to many others, but I am aware of all the adjustments I make when rising after sitting at a table.
I have been going to a wonderful acupuncturist and will start studying Tai Chi with her in September.
Tai Chi is so great for balance.
So...as I titled this...never forget that walking is a miracle. Guess we don't really appreciate sometimes as much until "it is gone or changed".
