It's been a few years since my spinal cord injury and despite being told that I would have little to improvement and that all of the recovery would end after the first year, I am proud to say that I have proven those predictions wrong. I've made some of my biggest improvements in my recovery in years 3,4, 5 and after my injury. Now, I have worked my way to being very close to taking independent steps. I can spend up to 90 minutes standing and doing exercises on my feet (mostly on the CoreAlign, my favorite piece of pilates equipment) and I am working hard towards regaining the ability to pick up a foot and take a step. With new developments in my personal life (I got married and am now expecting my first child), I feel rejuvenated to continue working hard towards my goals.
