I started out by writing about what I can or cannot do now, but to be honest, it was pretty boring.
I'm pretty sure you don't want to know a monthly update on my condition, even if you are wondering how I'm getting on. So I thought I'd do it a little different.
I'm going to let you know what I've learnt in the last eight months.
Just in case you've not read any of my other posts and you don't know what Transverse Myelitis is (don't worry, most people don't) I'll give a quick description. TM is when the coating on the spinal cord is damaged. The spinal cord sends messages from the brain to the rest of the body so when it is damaged in any way these messages get disrupted, or may not get through at all. TM is very rare and most of those who have have a completely different story to tell. Mine is...The cause of my attack is unknown, it was acute/happened quickly, and I have two damaged areas in my cervical and thorasic areas of my spine.
So what have I learnt?
