But I have my own set of achievements by which I am measuring progress -- not a long list, but a meaningful one:
- A week ago -- dressing myself for work although I confess my shirt was not neatly tucked in on the left side and I wore some old worn loafers because I still haven't attempted tying laces.
- Three days ago -- sleeping the entire night in bed without having to get up at 2 a.m. and settle on the recliner.
- Two days ago -- Buttoning my shirt with two hands. This meant I finally got to work on time since buttoning my shirt with one hand took forever, including breaks for hand cramps.
- Finally -- the big one!!! This morning I managed to get my left hand close enough to my right armpit to apply deoderant!!! I think everyone has been very happy with that one!
