It’s been awhile since I have posted anything here. I guess it’s because I have been frustrated. Been sick since October, but really feels like I have been knocked out since my motorcycle accident back in Oct. 2015. Seems my body doesn’t like the month of October. I went through a thyroid storm. Diagnosed with Graves Disease. No big deal, millions get this right? Well, of course it complicated my diabetes. Sugars were through the roof for months. Still are high and I am learning my insulin pump. I have a dead right shoulder. Waiting for a MRI to see if I have a tear or “just” a frozen shoulder. My eyes have been puffy for over a month, creating blurred vision at times. No diagnosis yet and I have seen many specialists.
It’s been a year since my crash…
Never did get surgery for these breaks and now my foot is about 3 degrees out of placement and although I did a ton of PT, hired a personal trainer I am left with a leg that does not perform as it did prior to the accident. I went hiking in the White Mountains a few weeks ago and it was at that time my leg weakened quickly to the point it felt like a peg leg.
The fall foliage in New Hampshire was amazing though and worth every limp. 😉
This past weekend was my first decent ride since I have moved to Connecticut. Went out with some gals from New England, Minna and Victoria. Continue reading “One year later and my leg?”
I haven’t posted for a while mainly because I am still not riding. Into my 8th month of recovery from my motorcycle accident back in October 2015, I am regaining strength and flexibility day by day. Yet, as hard as I have worked especially since March 21st, 2016-the day I became weight-bearing, I feel I have such a long way to go.

February 12th 2014 – Day 29 my Last Day Riding – short video clips are part of this post and click on the pics for higher resolution
Original Route looked like this which was always just a rough idea
I left my parents house around 1600 hrs yesterday to only ride to the Port Jeff/Bridgeport Ferry over to Connecticut. I wanted to get close to MAX BMW in Brookfield, CT and be able to ride another short distance in the morning to be there when they opened.
While in Stony Brook I got to see my sisters and some of their own family members as well as their dogs. My sisters and families are even more obsessed with their dogs than I am. 😉 I mean that in a caring and loving way.
Never enough time with family but the time we had over pizza and just hanging out was nice. My parents rushed down to the the ferry without me knowing they were to say one last good bye. WE had about 2 mins. before I boarded. I cried on the ferry but they don’t know…perhaps they do now.
Was able to see a few friends from when I was a kid and from high school days. It’s been over 30 years! I will be returning to NY in July via a plane for my 30th high school reunion. Continue reading “Day 17 – Shortest Riding Day”
