When can I start walking again?
Its coming up to about a month now that I’ve been in Hospital and I have not stepped foot out of my bed. The feeling of having the freedom to walk being taken away from you isn’t good at all. I was in bed all day and all night. My thoughts go out to those who are bed-ridden.
I know not many people would say this but I just really want to go for a run.
I think the one thing we could take away from this, is that you should never take your freedom for granted. A couple of months ago, I was able to do whatever I wanted to, go on hikes with my friends, go for a swim, hit the gym, play rugby and go out partying till late. I never thought I would have been THAT 17 year old boy that was stuck in the ICU of a hospital for nearly a month not being able to walk and not knowing where his life is heading.
