Since I have been making progress on my knees and being able to walk with greater ease; it is now time to work on my arm and hand damage. I have neuropathy in my right arm and hand and have had two surgeries to keep my arm and hand working. At one point I had to teach myself to write again much less paint or draw, but after many months I was able to do that. I discovered that some of the skills the artistic skills never really left; I just had to learn to control the pencil or brush again; the artist eye was never lost which is why I took to photography so fast. Photography became another way to artistically express myself. At first it seemed easier just to look for the composition and than push the shutter. I have since learned that there is more to it than that to be able to fully express myself to my fullest artistic ability and I'm still learning that and enjoying the learning process. However the best rehabilitation for my arm and hand is drawing and painting. When I fell and hurt my knee; I grabbed a handrail and re-injured my arm and hand and untill now I really did not take the time to work on rehab for it.
