Skiing

I have now gotten home from skiing for the first time since my accident. I think I did pretty well actually; even though I fell 4 times. I was on the ground a lot more than that but that was mostly because of my stupid balance issues and stuff. We started out on the bunny hill. But, I thought that was stupid. So we went on up to some regular runs. (We even had to take a blue to get there, and I didn’t even fall!) I also thought I would be done after one last run after the bunny hill. I was not excited about skiing at all. In fact, I actually thought that I would probably report on here that I was not going to ski again until I had more control of my body. After we got on the normal runs though, I actually started to enjoy it. I began to think that maybe I could do it. I even thought that I could maybe even do everything I once could do. For example, I used to LOVE going on little terrains off the main trails and going on all sorts of jumps and everything. So I started to do that. That would be where my 4 falls came from. I was going off of all sorts of jumps and stuff, and that’s where I fell so many times. Even though I guess four’s really not a lot… but still. Some of the falls really hurt though. One of them took the wind out of me. A couple of the others banged my head, but was wearing a helmet, even though it still totally hurt. But, as for me being able to do everything else the same way I could do before, I think I actually did really well. I skied in parallel the WHOLE time, and I was carving like crazy! Haha. But yeah so anyway, that’s about it…. Oh and also, I am adding a video of me skiing as well.
