Every Sunday I have the same thing with my bad left foot it curls under and is difficult to place so my good lady flattens it after placement to ensure my ankle doesn’t double under me as I shift from one leg to the other.
What she noticed this week how much better I was able to put the foot this week tan a few months ago , small progress but I’m taking it.
All progress is good progress Mark. Having a flat foot makes everything better. Learn to trust it and just maybe it will stsy flat for you. Enjoy your shower buddy.
Hows your job going? Well i hope.
I had a few steps barefoot this morning, first time in ages ive been able to do that
Good advice Andy, the trust is coming. The Jo b continues on Monday back in to teams meeting s and preparing a power point presentation. Hopefully it will expand to a permanent position.
Job sounds positive Mark and remember to take it steady and rest when you feel tired.
Fingers crossed it becomes permanent - a big psychological lift towards normality.
Keep us posted sir
Yes thanks Andy a level of pleasure and success now as could’ve never expected to have been possible 2 years earlier , will keep you posted on progress.
Hi just seen a advertisement on television fir this mat you can put in the shower your feet sink into it fou grip it let’s the water through and grips the shower base so it’s non slip sell it at a lot of stores and Asda it’s £14.99 looks good
@mrfrederickson good to hear hopefully the progress will continue

@mrfrederickson that’s great Mark, hopefully it will continue that way now which should in turn aid your walking. A real positive for you.
Hope you do get a permanent position with your job too.
Yes considering what a winger I am it must be good to seeing me more positive for a change, but always a little bit further as mark billingham would say

@mrfrederickson haha, sorry Mark, I have to agree to disagree with you , expressing how you feel is not always whinging, we all need to embrace our feelings, the good, the bad and the ugly.
We can sometimes struggle to see the bigger picture with all that has happened, it’s good you’re celebrating your small wins, long may you continue to progress
Thanks mrs5k, light at the end of the tunnel.

@mrfrederickson make sure you do t tire yourself good luck with PowerPoint. I definitely don’t miss school now just thinking about it makes me nauseous. Hope they keep you on
This is more need the money rather than love of work, if I reach pension age I will stop unless money is still a problem
Superb Mark… one step forward is progress x. Keep on going with those steps buddy
Will do Andy I wear shower shoes in the shower but want to weight myself and my boots are too big to stand on the scales
The sower shoes have no ankle.support so not sure how to do it
Thanks Mahoney let’s hop more come in the near future
Yes Lorraine stamina is more of an issue than before the stroke sadly
Is going on the scales barefoot an option? Or maybe get some crocs???
Ive bought some for my trips to the hydrotherapy pool ar the gym…
Clogs i guess youd call them with the movable ankle strap
