There was that time five years ago when just standing up without help was like running a marathon and deserved a big celebration. I wasn’t walking yet but that was the next step after standing up.
This was achieved just seven months after the TBI. Just standing up was a good sign and it gave me hope, just like it should give hope to anyone who is facing a similar situation. It’s the little things, like standing up, that make bring a big improvement. Getting up later turns into walking, for example.
Don’t give up and believe in yourself!
