Months later, Sbahle is now taking her first steps unassisted – and it’s a huge milestone.
Taking to her Instagram page, the 26-year-old shared a video of her taking her first steps on Wednesday afternoon.
In the video, she’s visibly in pain and moving slowly, but continues to take four courageous steps, followed by squats assisted by her instructor.
She shared, in the video’s caption, that her mother managed to get her to take a few steps and that it took over an hour to accomplish.
“Your body can withstand almost anything. It’s your mind that needs the convincing. For the past couple of months, without much success, I’ve been attempting to at least take 1 step,” She wrote.
“Yesterday my mum managed to make me take 3 steps, and it took a whole hour. I cannot describe how mentally challenging it was!
“Today Zain encouraged me to try take a walk without focusing on the pain I’m facing. For some miraculous reason, calling my bodyguard to come take a video of me, made me mentally ready to walk and record this milestone,” she added.
She also thanked her followers for their support, “Love y’all & thank you for the constant support. It pushes me forward.”
