Feel the Beat…Praise Report!

Top pic: Dancing w Dr. Cheryl @powherchiro and then L foot clockwork 😑. Re. dancing: Super Dre @sdpphotostudio was enjoying it way too much 🤣🤣🤣. It’s important to follow the beat. She selected music and played it on her phone. But it’s way harder when you are going deaf. But deaf people love music, too. Apparently one is supposed to feel the beat – relying on the vibration of the sounds. I can “feel” rhythm as a pianist, but as I lose hearing, this is an entirely new ball game. There’s a lot of visual imitation and mental (mis)calculation going on. The learning process is hilarious. Andy Frankenstein did very basic Clockwork with me in 2011 when he taught me to walk. DLee @fyzicalgermantown upped the ante in 2018 when I told him, “I need info that will yield a sustainable gait for the duration of my lifetime” 😑. Then I started losing hearing and everything got thrown off. So now I’m STILL working on Clockwork – it’s been almost ten years, and the parameters keep on changing. But my capacity to adapt and learn new things is growing, too. 📈 Praise: I ran my first mile @alterginc since Nov 2018. No hip pain, greater joint control, reasonable breathing. The breathing thing is a huge confidence booster bc this is the first time I’m exerting myself with 🫁 known to be a tiny bit smushy on the bottom. 🤟. #avmsurvivor #strokesurvivor #lifeismysport #learninghowtolive #shreddedgrace
