Navalny Spoke About The Progress Of His Recovery After Hospitalization

FBK founder Alexey Navalny spoke on Instagram about the progress of his recovery after being hospitalized.

"This is already a clear road, though not a long one. All the current problems like the fact that the phone in my hands is useless as a stone, and pour yourself some water turn into a whole attraction, sheer nonsense," Navalny wrote.

Navalny explained that recently he was not able to recognize people and talk. The inability to choose words and meanings for them made him desperate, Navalny added, but he didn't know how to express it.

"Now I'm a guy whose legs shake when he walks up the stairs, but he thinks: "Oh, it's a ladder! They climb it. I think we should look for an Elevator." And before, I would just stand and stare stupidly," he said.

Navalny added that he and his doctors still have many problems to solve. However, German specialists were able to do the main thing: turn him from a "technically alive person" into a person who can "quickly flip through Instagram."

Navalny lost consciousness on August 20 during a flight from Tomsk to Moscow. He was taken to a hospital in Omsk, where he stayed for two days. Local experts did not find any traces of poisoning in his tests. On August 22, he was transferred to the Charite clinic in Berlin.

The German side claims that Navalny was poisoned with the poison of the Novichok group. Russia requested data from German experts to examine the opposition leader, but Germany refused to provide information without Navalny's consent. On September 7, Navalny's condition improved: he was disconnected from the ventilator and brought out of an artificial coma. On September 15, the founder of FBK published the first photo after being hospitalized.

Let me tell you how my recovery is going. That is already a clear road, though not a long one. All the current problems like the fact that the phone is useless in my hands, like a stone, and pour yourself a drink of water turn into whole attraction-is nonsense.

Explain. Not long ago, I didn't recognize people and didn't know how to talk. Every morning the doctor came to me and said: Alexey, I brought a Board, let's figure out what word to write on it. This made me desperate because even though I already understood what the doctor wanted in General, I didn't know where to get the words. Where do they occur in the head? Where can I find a word, and how can I make it mean something? All of it was absolutely incomprehensible. However, I didn't know how to express my despair either, so I just didn't say anything. And this is what I describe as a late-stage that I remember myself.

Now I'm a guy whose legs shake when he walks up the stairs, but he thinks: "Oh, it's a ladder! They climb it. I think we should look for an Elevator." Before, I would have just stood there and stared.

So many problems still have to be solved, but the amazing doctors of the University of Berlin clinic "Charite" solved the main one. They have transformed me from a "technically alive person" to one who has every chance of becoming a Higher Form again Creatures of Modern Society, a person who can quickly scroll through Instagram and without thinking understands where to put likes.
