I have finally got my date for returning to work. From Monday I'm on annual leave for 6 weeks then a phased return from 4th March ( 10 days before the year anniversary of my stroke). I plan to use the next 6 weeks building up my strength and stamina ready for work. ?♀️?♀️
I have read the posts from fellow S.S's and hope to remember your advice. I am excited but also apprehensive. It's what I wanted from 2 minutes after my stroke. To get back to normal. I know that's not possible and embrace my new normal. Most of the time. ????
Starting back to the gym after my fall and getting a tiny ulcer on my stroke affected foot. Found you lose strength and coordination if you stop doing regular exercise. Deep joy!
Hi Kay - good to hear from you, and I'm excited for your return to work!! Make the most of the next few weeks, they'll fly by - bloomin' annoying to get an ulcer, let's hope that clears up PDQ. You're a tough cookie with a great attitude your employer is lucky to have you ? ? xxx Up and On you go ..
As I will only be working 3 days a week.and only doing four hours per day. I should be able to continue as Nic's side-kick. I will have to increase my exercise levels to improve my fitness and stamina which will help me do my job. ?♀️?♀️?♀️
I will make sure I do things slowly especially in the beginning I really need my job( money) ??
Phew thought I was going to be on my Jack Jones. Shame I only pay in kind - cake & chocs, won't really help the bank balance ? p'raps we'll win the stroke lottery (if I can find my numbers, or knew where to check!!) xxx
