Losing Balance Part 1

G'Day Mate,

ok then... Part 1

A few months ago I started to feel a little strange, off balance kind of thing. I put it down to being in Lock Down and living a complete opposite life... that of being indoors. Each time I made the six floors down to the supermarket the journey back to my apartment became harder and harder....

Then kinder started and all went down hill.

I began needing help from my students to climb the stairs and the help from my Chinese classroom assistants to stand up from my seat. The kinder became worried and sent me to the school nurse who told me to see a doctor.... quickly!

I said ok and went to my office to sleep.
Same the following day and the day after that etc.

I woke several mornings after and could not feel my feet or legs, nor could I raise myself into a sitting position.....um..... this is not due to lock down as both legs and feet were the size of elephants.

All energy depleted.
No strenght.

I called my Chinese Brother (thats how it works in China. I have been with my boss for six years, trust, respect, I am his elder brother, family.
I was with my old boss for ten years, trust, respect, a father and son bond and until this day that is still how we greet each other).

It is called respect.

PART 2 next
