Negatives are far to easy to find, keeping a positive mental attitude is so deeply challenging. However it is needed, it's the only side of our minds we can control. Lose that and you go down hard.
So anything positive, any achievement at all, let's make this the place people go to get motivation and inspiration.
I'll start, I had a non verbal spell because of pain the other day. It lasted about an hour but a beautiful thing happened. I signaled to my wife so she knew. Mouth wouldn't even open to let the words out.
I felt low and left the room to go lie down. My wife walked to the kitchen to get a cup of tea. As I was going though the door and she was behind me she said "love you"
Instantly I heard "love you" from my own lips, just two words in an hour but enough to bring a flood of happy tears. I have never ever been able to do that, that was the only ever time it's happened, but I think it's something only she would be able to achieve.
To me that's our mental connection in all its beauty and strength, it was so reassuring to get that.
