The irony of recovery

Getting better means time for rest

To process reconnection

The irony of recovery

Progress sparks hope for more

Yet, a reminder to be patient and slow

The irony of recovery

Getting better means time for rest

 

I hold mixed feelings about my stroke recovery.  I get excited to participate in activities as I used to and disappointed because I must hold back. Each time I celebrate a progress, my body reminds to make time to rest and register what’s new. Without the rest, the possibilities get lost. Every progress sparks hope and reminds me that I must continue slowly. Despite the excitement and inevitable expectations, I’m constantly reminded to be patient and respect the full process. I must persist slow and steady, and I will succeed when all is ready.
