Thursday… Two more steps

Last night I went back into the water in dive kit for the first time for five years! It was in a swimming pool, but I felt very apprehensive. But after the first ten seconds the previous training returned and I settled back into it quite happily – albeit maximum depth of about 3 metres!

Some of my drills are a little rusty and need a bit more practice, and I certainly want to do a bit more pool training before I contemplate open water diving again, but I left the pool with a big grin on my face. One more step on ‘getting my life back’!

And another has been some more time on the LeukaemiaCARE helpline – something I used to do, but felt I had to give up when I had the biopsy that affected my speech. In the intervening years I have overcome that, so that is another step on the path!

Onwards and upwards!

    Terry – Yes – it was a good feeling – on both counts (apparently when I came out of the pool I was grinning from ear to ear!) P
