Last night I went to a friends 50th party. Worried about access being in a wheelchair, especially bathroom issues etc.The meal went well, then the music started-how I loved to dance, felt a bit down, then my friend came over and next thing I'm on the dance floor (helped by my meds and a slurp of wine). They whirled and twirled me in my chair- I waved my arms and felt amazing. The music and my friends gave me a gift I thought was lost to me-it was magic. Others got up and danced with us-truly I was transported to a place that was me before my accident.What a lesson to learn-never limit yourself. Music is now going to become an aid for me-take me to places in my mind where physical limitations don't matter.
Thank you for letting me share my story, perhaps others may find a way to let music ease their issues even for a while.
Hugs n' Loves- Paula
