A little late on this but today was National Foot Drop Awareness Day! Foot drop can be a result of various medical conditions. For me it occurred due to child birth! I suffered severe nerve damage (femoral neuropathy) meaning that my left foot has been completely paralyzed for almost three months! It has been so hard and I have my good days and bad days. I hope that with physical therapy and hard work one day I will be able to walk again without any assistance! Even on my worst day when everything feels hopeless and I feel helpless I am thankful for all I do have. But mostly I am thankful that my baby was born perfectly healthy! If I had to do it all over again knowing what I know now I would do it because he has been worth every minute of all I’ve been through! I believe that everything happens for a reason and I am sure I will find the reason on my road to recovery!💗😍🤗 #nationalfootdropawarenessday#roadtorecovery#dropfoot#footdrop#footdropawareness#mommylife
The Actor⠀ More than most people, the alcoholic leads a double life. He is very much the actor. To the outer world he presents his stage character. This is the one he likes his fellows to see. He wants to enjoy a certain reputation, but knows in his heart he doesn't deserve it.
The Power⠀ The unselfishness of these men as we have come to know them, the entire absence of profit motive, and their community spirit, is indeed inspiring to one who has labored long and wearily in this alcoholic field. They believe in themselves, and still more in the Power which pulls chronic alcoholics back from the gates of death.
