How I did it: I have gone 21 years not knowing how to swim. I was never taught due to not being near water/parents not having time. This plus a fear of putting my head beneath the water (probably due to my Asperger's syndrome), a couple of near-drowning experiences, and numerous failed attempts at learning basically made it something that was nearly impossible for me to do. Not only did I not have the skill or coordination to learn,… Read how I did it…
I have had an unusual, rocky life so far but not the time nor motivation to write about it. I want to inspire someone who needs it or help to expose a big problem few know about. This may take awhile to get to. Wish me luck!
I have poor joints due to hypermobility syndrome (double jointedness) and have twisted both ankles and sprained my forearm several times. I am tired of being afraid to run or play tennis/baseball for fear of injury. Doing PT as often as I remember to. Don’t see much in results, but hopefully I am getting stronger—about 6 weeks or so, so far.
