Today’s prompt, from the sales office in Peoria, Arizona: Write about a challenge you faced and overcame.
The biggest challenge that I faced was my stroke in 2007. I woke up after several days of induced sleep and couldn’t move anything on the right side of my body. I didn’t know if I’d ever walk again or ever regain the functioning of my right arm. I’m still weak on my right side and have lost the fine motor skills in my right hand, but I can walk with a cane or walker and have learned to cope with the things I can’t do. Most important to that discussion: I learned to type with one hand, which is why this is The Sound of One Hand Typing.
