This would have been a highlight of my week, being a tourist at Buckingham Palace but I cycled 18 miles yesterday with this one, incredible feeling, I grinned the whole 18 miles. #myfaceissorefromsmiling #18miles #mywingman #disabilitiesdontstopme #adaptedtrike #beatinglockedin #brainstemstroke #strokerecovery #strokesurvivor #lifeafterstroke #nevergiveup

It was wonderful to meet the aunt of John Micheal Night this week. 'JM' had a brainstem stroke and locked in syndrome December 2015 at age 17. JM works everyday, never giving up, trying to get functional movement and to regain his speech. He shows so much courage and bravery, I say a prayer for him everyday. I am proud to be #jmstrong and he is #beatinglockedin. Remember him in your prayers. #jmstrong24 #heisawarrior #powerofprayer #togetherwecanmakeadifference #brainstemstroke #beatinglockedin #nevergiveup #believe

Loving my new adapted trike. Gearshift, brakes all adapted to my left side. So happy, I cycled my favourite former running route. Feeling the wind in my face and the country roads almost made me cry with happiness! #sohappyicouldexplode #disabledandproud #icetrike #adaptedtrike #beatinglockedin #brainstemstroke #strokerecovery #lifeafterstroke #nevergiveup #believe

Excited! First time I've sat on my new ice trike, picking pedals! Meeting Tom from freetrike for the first time after numerous emails and phone calls! Excited for my first cycle! #toomuchexcitement #icetrike #monthsofplanning #beatinglockedin #brainstemstroke #lifeafterstroke #strokerecovery #strokerecovery #disabledandproud

With a brain injury not all disabilities are visible. We went to the movies but were asked to leave as I got the giggles! One of the side effects of my stroke, getting the giggles and being unable to stop! #notalldisabilitiesarevisible #livingwithbraininjury #mywingman #helaughswithme #brainstemstroke #beatinglockedin #strokesurvivor #strokerecovery #wegotkickedout #lifeafterstroke

Adrian being in hospital gave me time to explore the shops in London by myself. Walking in crowds makes me nervous as I can loose my balance. Delighted to have had a great afternoon shopping with no accidents to report #disabilitiesdontstopme #stillawoman #enjoyshopping #gettingstrongereveryday #beatinglockedin #brainstemstroke #strokesurvivor #strokerecovery #liveeverydaytothefullest

He's saved people's lives in his day job, saved mine twice, helped me to help my dad when he was having a heart attack, now he's helping to save the life of someone with blood cancer who needs a life saving stem cell transplant #proudofhim #mywingman #togetherwecanmakeadifference #anthonynolan #stemcell #bloodcancer #savinglives

Facebook memory today making me remember where I was two years ago. I can never thank everyone who has helped me in every little way enough #sothankfulforeverything #thankfulforalltheprayers #whatadifference2yearsmakes #beatinglockedin #brainstemstroke #strokerecovery #strokesurvivor #liveeverydaytothefullest

Visited Kathy today who has locked in syndrome. She can move her both her ankles and left hand now! Movement of her left hand allows her to communicate by pressing a small switch and spell out words but is very tiring @kateallatt what is the best eye-gaze technology, I want to fundraise and get her this. She's on a list and may not get it to 2019! #sheisafighter #lockedinsyndrome #brainstemstroke #communicationboard #communicationiseverything #togetherwecanmakeadifference #nevergiveup

Working hard on my affected arm. I can push up from lying position. #progress #littlesteps #workinghard #beatinglockedin #brainstemstroke #strokesurvivor #strokerecovery #nevergiveup #homegym

My right affected arm now has enough power to hold a 5kg kettle bell and my bicep and shoulder are engaging! #excitment #hardworkpaysoff #kettlebell #nevergiveup #beatinglockedin #brainstemstroke #strokerecovery #strokesurvivor #homegym
