I had to find something to fill my time during this recovery period; no one seem to know what exactly it is I'm recovering from or how long this recovery period will be. I have lingering cognitive issues along with very apparent short term memory problems. I can read the music however I cannot make my fingers follow the music on the piano. I'm not even going to mention golf. It's been very frustrating - even depressing. No one is even hazarding a guess. On the plus side, I'm no longer needing a walker, unless it's a long outing (for me that over 2 hours). I've been discharged to outpatient physical therapy & I've been approved for driving a 5 mile radius daily. Done with the whine - I started a nature journal. I sit in my backyard & record observations of what is going on. The birds, changes in plants, trees - anything else going on in my yard. I'm looking forward to being able to hike through a forest to make a record of nature. I've never been able to draw in my life. I've always used stick figures & such. I showed my therapist & my GP my nature journal earlier this week commenting on how all of a sudden I not only can draw; I seem to be able to do it very well. Both my GP & therapist were seriously impressed. GP suggested that quite possibly my right brain has taken over for my left brain. (I'm a staff accountant, however I can't seem to balance the checkbook or pay bills with-o making mistakes. Huge concern for me.) I'm having a gas producing this artwork. That's what husband calls it - artwork. I've never ever considered anything I've done artwork. However, I must say that I seem to have developed an artistic bent. husband is going to scan my artwork so I can post it on my little website. Not sure I want it hanging out there - he's quite proud. therapist is going to do some research into this. Have any of you heard of this kind of thing?
