He couldn't do anything independently, thought he had been abducted and was living on a different planet. He didn't know who I was or that his father had passed away. It's important to see where he's been to understand how far he's come. #MattDavisRecovery#DitchtheChair
I'm sick of people glorifying brain injury like its this powerful, strong thing. I want to see more of the crap and less of the "so amazing, so inspirational, so incredible." Just because a story makes you feel a certain way, doesn't mean that's what it's like to live in that reality. #MattDavisRecovery#DitchTheChair
Heavy eyes. Cold hands. Firm foundation on shaky ground. I take stock of my body when I feel grief. I don't do "out of control." Grief is a sneaky bitch. It comes out of nowhere and is looking for a fight. I give in. I don't like to do the expected. My heart starts to race and my mind wanders. Searching for a moment to quell the ache in my chest. Exhausting laps of moments that never happened. Of people long forgotten.
My heart slams against the cage holding it together. And I remember this time. He was late for work. I wanted him to stay with me.
He always gave me what I wanted. Nothing mattered more to him than 5 more minutes with me. My heart slows and I exhale. To know what it means to be wanted. I invite grief. It always comes bearing gifts. #MattDavisRecovery#DitchtheChair
HOW CAN REPLACING YOUR CHAIR BY AN EXERCISE BALL HELP YOU?
It will force you to keep a correct alignment of your spine and your core and stabiliser muscles will stay active. That will improve your balance and facilitate the blood circulation. The result? You will feel more energetic at the end of the day. It will also make you change position more often leading to more energy burned, which will help you to lose weight. And it’s fun!
When you need to practice walking but the only walkers on-hand are too short Dropping the cross-member on the @roguefitness#yoke got it to the perfect height for Mike and simply attaching a strap to the uprights allowed me to pull from the front so he could focus on his feet Heel Hip Toe Foot #DitchTheChair
From @meilin_mcdonald thank you @CrossFit these are just a few clips out of a 7min film He never gave up on me, so I will NEVER GIVE UP. I am thankful to be able to share my story with the world, @CrossFit just released my story, and I am super excited to see how God uses this to impact those who see it! I hope and pray that you are encouraged by this to NEVER GIVE UP. Most of all I pray that God will be glorified. He has always had a plan for my life and I am so glad that my plan never worked out. Now I choose to serve Him and use my story to glorify Him #DitchTheChair @jethorson@faithrxd
