Physical and occupational Therapy is HARD WORK! I don’t care what age you are – it is a challenging task. I watch my Mother struggle with it. Her physical therapist comes; puts her gate belt on; gets her walker – and up she goes. As I walk behind them with the wheelchair (just in case), my Mother can only take a few steps…but she keeps trying. As I listen to the “clank-clank” of the walker, the heavy breathing with every step, her talking to herself “You can do this!” She can’t do much – but she keeps trying…and that’s what is most important.
The mind is a powerful thing. Believe in yourself. You can do it.
