Small Speaking Success

I spoke at Philly Emerging Tech this week, and had a major milestone. I was able to walk across the room and speak while walking.

For those of you who saw me speak before my hemorrhage, you know I used to walk back and forth, and shake my head and roll my eyes. I was an active speaker. After the hemorrhage, I have sometimes hung onto a nearby podium or table for balance, sometimes out of sheer panic. My walking has been quite restricted. But now, thanks to my medicine, I am walking and talking at the same time. I am still using my cane, because I am still dizzy, but I am much better. I will pass on the eye rolling while walking, thank you!

I feel good about my speaking abilities, and I feel good about my success. Better living through chemistry.
