How can it be?…

How can my body live together with my mind? It seems impossible. It really is. I am 41 years old, but my body feels like 80. My mind however is still 16!

When I was a child I had polio. I survived it, but couldn’t walk for many years. What I went through then, defines me now, for sure. My mind is stronger. But my body can’t keep up. It’s always behind. It crawls so slowly, it makes my mind desperate. And the worse part is… I can do nothing about it!! I just have to sit and wait till my legs and arms say: ok, we can move again, let’s go. In my head I was 2 times the world around and by the time my legs moved, my mind was tired again. Can you believe it? Impossible, I’m telling you, those two! 😉

  1. I came here to offer my thanks for your recent decision to follow Learning from Dogs. Then I read your post and realised how difficult it is for me to truly empathise with how the world is for you. You write so beautifully; that is a true talent!

    • Thank you so very much.
      And also: I am very happy that you can’t really empathize with my world. That means you don’t know what it is to live with a lot of pain. And you know what… that makes me happy!! Because no one deserves that life. Have a nice weekend!! Lots of hugs!
