« Are Some Challenges a Blessing? | Main | Opportunities, How to be Prepared »


Thank you for sharing this experience. Your patient perserverence with your own internal goal and struggle is inspiring, to state the least.

You have come a long way since you got sick! As the mother of a special needs child, I have had to learn to celebrate each accomplishment and to be patient on when the next one will happen. You did just that!

Bill - May we all learn from your hard work, perseverance, and faith in yourself. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

Bill, You should contact Readers' Digest. This is the kind of story they often publish. I'm not sure I would ever have the courage to do what you did. Amazing.

Hello Beth, Regenia, Patty, Linda and others.

Thank you for your encouragements and suggestions. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.

I hope we can all “Learn to Walk Again” in our own way. Not all of us will have such drastic challenges to overcome. Others will have even more difficult challenges than I talked about in my message. Some challenges may seem easy to overcome for some, but even these challenges should not be underestimated for the ones who are trying to conquer them. It can be very, very difficult and terrifying. Like when I talked about stepping off a curb for the first time with no eyesight, full leg braces and a walker.

How can we help you to walk again, in your own way? We all want to see all of us succeed the best we can. Let us know how we can help. We look forward to hearing your thoughts, comments and ideas to help us all.

Many thanks for the inspiration! Our family really needs to hear your story as we support our elderly mom at home in recovering from her severe stroke!

Gloria, I am happy my story gave you hope, inspiration and some extra inner strength to take care of your mom after her severe stroke.

It is very difficult, challenging and tiring in my opinion taking care of elderly parents, relatives and other friends.

My wife and I with help from other family are taking care of her elderly parents (89 & 91) with many medical challenges.

You might find Elder Care by the Disabled I wrote intrusting.

It takes a special person to be the caregiver to others and need. I can sense from your message and from you reading such blog messages on the Global Dialogue Center, you are a person who has such caring and inner strength.

I wish you, your mom and your family all the best.

Does anyone else have any comments to help us through our challenges? Do you need help with any challenges, or long or short term difficulties?

Thank you for sharing this with so many others as myself.

I'm Josephine's Mom, and she forwarded me your Blog regarding your health accomplishments. You are truly a remarkable person with tremendous determination. By sharing your strength in conquering your goals you give others the encouragement to reach theirs. Thank you for sharing your inner most feelings that most people would keep bottled up only for themselves. Enjoy the Christmas you worked so hard for!!!!

Hello Chris and others,

Chris, I am very happy to meet you, and I am glad Josephine shared my story with you.

Before I went blind and went through my other challenges, I did not share my inner most feelings, I am sorry to say. I write what I do to help others and to provide skills learned from going through challenges most people do not go through. Maybe I learned the value of sharing while I learned my other new skills.

Thank you for the holiday wishes. My wife and I will have a very good holiday.
I invite you to also read "Reflecting and Embracing Another Year's Passing" to see what I learned from others while in the hospital at Christmas, prior to me getting out, and learning how to walk again.

Thanks again for stopping by to share your comment. It meant a lot to me.
