    Awesome. Simply awesome!
    I hope the diving will give you back some strength in the long run. Looking at your diving history, I wouldn't be surprised if someday you will be taking other people into the underwater world, showing them that many limitations on land don't exist anymore underwater....

    I had plans to train to do that some time ago, but timing to take a course hadn't worked out...now, I will have been on both sides of the fence! I have to wait until I can walk fully I think before I could be acceptable as an instructor...and I'd need to be a little stronger too....perhaps it's just a matter of time!

    Congratulations! I can tell others here from personal experience that coming back after an illness that makes you doubt you will ever dive again is wonderful.

    I am so glad you were able to come back! I hope people reading your story will be motivated to do it, too, when they can.

    Thank you Admikar, we all have our own journeys in life, mine has been a tad "challenging", but I'm a stronger and better person for it <3

    Thank you TrimixToo :) it's taken me finding ketones (a supplement), and a lot of sheer determination to get this far. I still have a long road to recovery, but I'm excited about this journey. It's one I know I can win! <3
