I went in the pool.
In my bikini. Which was exciting for me, and the onlookers, I expect.
Only for about 10 minutes though.
And it was heated.
And was only 0.9 metres deep.
I stood up, and kicked around. It was such a funny sensation, floating and splashing in water deeper than the bath. I liked it.
It seems a bit silly, but in these past few weeks I've achieved a lot, physically. I do feel like a kid learning new skills. Some of the things I've learnt or done (bending my body in new ways, going in the pool) are things that people do every day. But for me, it's been either so long since I have done, or tried and failed once before, or not done the things at all, so for me to achieve these little things, and ENJOY doing so, is really exciting.
And my skin didn't hurt in the pool but tingles a bit now. It should be fine though. As I said, if the doctor said I can have a bleach bath, I'm sure the pool will be ok for 10 minutes.
Yay. Yay. Yay.
One small splash for me is pretty cool. Literally, I am MUCH cooler now!
