  1. like you're in my mind . I've been divorced for , I think 3 years, I say I think for time has no relevance to me anymore
  2. Christina , I have similar visual issues and have not even tried to date. I live in a resort town so in the off season most people down in my Irish town go to bars. I used to go before but now I don't drink, the sound and crowds completely make me disoriented to the point I get sick. I believe being honest but always worried about scaring guys away.
  3. Heather, you never cease to amaze me. .. Have you ever told you to write your nuggets in a book. you give good advise. instead of Confucius ... It'll be Heather.....

  8. Wow Deigh.. Firstly thank you for your service Secondly: Wow what a resume I have not had a career like you however I have notice a hearing loss since my stroke. Mainly I have a change in pitch/tone. People often think I was joking when I said I couldn't hear my son, his voice dropped thank goodness, for his tone was high and that was a type of sound I could not hear. My father has a similar tone issue. He has always with power tool, despite being a teacher. and loud music when he was young

  12. I'm on a bunch, one that truly helps https://www.drugs.com/venlafaxine.html and extended release. But it's not so much for the stroke but for my ADD. I also take Xanax but that is mainly for my leg spams and a Beta Blockers that chills you out but that's for my Tachycardia ( hereditary)

Again I keep going back to YOU WERE IN ESTROGEN HELL. lol My father was alone in a house with my mom and twin sister . With the headphones, if I wear mine around people I'm more relaxed. I know your plate is full but are you working full time or part? It may have been to soon.?
