Someone once told me everytime you fall, you become stronger. I have to say that’s not necessarily true for a Dystonia patient. Everytime you fall you think – is my battery dying? is my Dystonia getting worse? Will my loved one still want to be in this game with me….Welcome to Dystonia 101!
I have to say I look at my medals every night before I go to bed, they remind me how strong I am and then a day like today when I fall in front of colleagues and start to cry reminds me that I am still a Dystonia patient. I have to remind myself it is okay to cry, it is okay to be a little angry, but it is not okay to wallow in self pity.
My pity party ends at 12:01, new day, new smile!
