There was a time where even going to the bathroom was a mission, even taking a shower was a mission. I needed to be taken to the shower and the bathroom. That was the most tiring period. The most depressing period of my life.
She said that she had an accident on the 16th of April this year when she was doing something that she loves doing more than anything else in the world.
“So I decided I was going to keep it to myself, I was going to allow myself to heal because being immobile when you are the person I used to moving around and being hands-on is very frustrating”, Dawn Thandeka King added.
