What do you think, (I've sent it now, so don't be harsh) I got in Kerry Fisted, for you Dave!!!
I hope you don't mind me writing, I am not a professional far from it really. 24 years ago I sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury, the residual effects were left side paralysis, controlled epilepsy, impaired vision, and the usual things related to any kind of brain damage like memory and concentration issues.
7 years ago I became a single parent of a 2 and 6 year old, I did the only thing I could and that was to get an electric mobility scooter. I think this did little for my physical and mental wellbeing. (Im trying to be brief honest) I sought out Steve Marsden of the CTC, and I now, Cycle daily, on a Recumbent Trike, and became a Cycle and Health Champion. For my work at Cycling For All at Hillsborough Park.
Cycling 4 All had a Seasonal launch day on March the 29th, where I enjoyed the company of a woman with Learning Difficulties on a favorite Side by Side Cycle (for 2). She explained that she was prescribed membership to a local gym, which was subsidized, by her GPs. Now in my 'Kerry Fisted Way' I just think the social inclusion, along with physical activity is far preferable?? But I haven't got a clue, where to start with these ideas??? Is it s'thing your surgery would consider. I'm 100% sure, Steve Marsden(CTC) and myself would show you the variety of cycles we have available at Hillsborough, when he gets back from leave on the 16/04.
I have copied him in on this, and I'm just grateful that he trusts me to do this as Cycling has changed my life, and it is my passion now to empower other folk with disabilities. He took me from the depressed 'Wallflower' to an Olympic Torch carrier.
Thanks for reading this,
