Dancing

Posted on

The Woodgate Bootscooters are one of my local groups that have been really supportive. I returned to their Friday morning session to see if I was ready for line dancing.  I went slowly at first as this was the first time I really challenged my balance, jiggled the wound area about and felt the changes in my body and its sense of space. I danced every alternate dance and then went for it for about an hour. My brain jammed about then and I stopped to avoid falling from knotted legs! I felt better after it – if a little sore and stiff around the surgery area (it is still rubber-like and desensitised).  I was breathing more freely and felt clearer in the head.  I then went home and slept for 3 hours! The big difference was this morning when I find that I am more balanced, functioning better generally and feeling more confident in my space.
