Chronic pain is no joke once my dystonia kicks in it's just fuel to the fire and all I can do as a grown ass man is bag and pray this is why I started medicating with concentrates it makes the pain a little more bearable hard to believe all this from a surgery that ended with the worst possible outcome that's my luck
TODAY WOW IS THE 28TH YEAR #ANNIVERSARY OF ME BECOMING AN #AMPUTEE .
This day has always been difficult for me , as not only did I get hit by a boat propeller while I was swimming at age 5, I also had to face very painful reconstructive #surgeries to be able to fit my very hacked up leg to say the least, into a prosthetic leg so I could be able to walk and function as a child who just wanted to have fun like the rest of the kids.My dad & I on the other hand had to travel to see surgeons& #prosthesis to make a #prostheticleg that would fit. It takes hours, days & months even to get it right & walking with tolerable pain(for an #amputee ) THE HARDEST THING is not my past, it's the future and what's needing to be done. I am a #SYMESAMPUTEE . Very rare as they no longer amputate like this anymore due to the long limb, eventually the bottom half of my stump is dying from poor circulation & from being an amputee for 28yrs.My #scars are so thin they cannot repair them.So I have RE- #AMPUTATE TO BECOME A #BELOWKNEEAMPUTEE , meaning I lose half of my lower leg😭.I had surgery 2 yrs ago which I will post to fix the upper 2 scars so they are flat as if they are uneven they will rub in the #prosthetic & tear.They did this surgery so when I get amputated to #BK the #prosthetic would be more comfortable. Problem is i cant bring myself to have the surgery and waiting for it to heal with auto immune disorders going against me plus not being able to walk for up to a year is something I cannot even imagine.I hope one day #God gives me the #strength to do this.I wonder why all this happens ,yet I know from being a #believer that God has a bigger plan for me.Life is hard being an #amputee and even harder when you have #Fibromyalgia with it.BUT I JUST KEEP PUSHING AND #PRAYING FOR BETTER DAYS.I hope you will all realise how blessed you are for things we all take for granted like having 2 feet.I'm posting this not for sympathy but to show the world that no matter what ur battle in life is,it's you inside who has to overcome it ,accept it and keep moving foward #onestepatatime .That's what I'm doing. I hope #mystory can make others suffering realise #YOUARENOTALONE . @staymedicatedneige
But brothers don’t have to be blood relations. Maybe those you see as your “brothers” aren’t even men who grew up in the same household or neighborhood as you did. They are just incredible friends you met later in life – at college, in your workplace, or through a hobby you enjoy – who have always been there for you.
Very blessed to be able to spend this day with several men that get this holiday. It’s a day observed to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice and as long as you remember that - it’s okay to lay loose and have a great weekend. Please don’t forgot to honor those who gave their lives so that we may live ours in the freedoms we have.
This morning Bertie came over to me and gave me a cuddle. Then out of nowhere, he said ‘Mummy? I love your special leg’ 😭
Powered by that overwhelming moment of utter adorability, and momentarily forgetting the terrible twos, I feel like my practice is finally starting to pay off. I still can’t do this for any distance, especially outside of the house, but I’m starting to get a bit of technique now that my core muscles are very slowly starting to say hello.
I’ve been struggling this week with it rubbing and making my skin sore, but after thickening the liner I wear it was much better today. It seems I’ve lost a bit of weight and I was sinking a little too far into the socket. The little leg will naturally get smaller over time as the muscles waste away, and my socket will be recast from time to time to accommodate this. It’s a lifelong journey for sure!
Another beautiful day above ground. I hate running with a passion, but the more I do it, the easier it gets! Shaving off almost 10 min off my last 10k! Get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself! #adaptandovercome#amputee#bladerunner#moseslake
Jeder regt sich in jeglicher Hinsicht über belanglose Dinge auf und man vergisst völlig wie gut es einem geht und wie Wertvoll dieses Leben ist. Ich denke, man sollte mehr das Leben genießen. Auch wenn es keine guten, sondern schlechte Zeiten sind, ist es wichtig, diesen Moment zu akzeptieren und weiterzumachen.
Das sind genau diese Momente, wo wir wachsen können. 🌹
Viele junge Menschen denken, dass nichts schlimmes jemals passieren wird und bleiben immer gesund. Aber es ist nicht so! Tatsächlich kann sich im nächsten Moment alles ändern! Und es kann jeden treffen. Niemand hat eine Garantie darauf.
