  1. The other day at the local stroke support meeting the guest speaker was a stroke doctor and she said there are more types of stroke than Baskin and Robbins has flavors. Has anyone else heard that and what are the others?
  2. Glad I was able to give y'all a chuckle. It made my day.
  3. ATD-at the doctor. BFF-best friend fell. BTW-bring the wheelchair. BYOT-bring your own teeth. FWIW-forgot where I was. GGPBL-gotta go pacemaker battery low. GHA-got heartburn again. IMHO-is my hearing aid on. LMDO-laughing my dentures out. OMMR-on my massage recliner. OMSG-oh my! sorry, gas. ROFLACGU-rolling on floor laughing and can't get up. TTYL-talk to you louder
  4. I'm not an expert but IMHO it's never too late

  6. bored

    I'm just sitting here bored out of my mind. there is no one down in the Social Room I want to visit with. (I live in an Independent Living Senior apartment building-I'm the youngest one here by a few years). There isn't anything on tv except for all the controversy surrounding "you know who" for a while until baseball comes on. was supposed to have an MRI yesterday but the machine broke Monday night so now I have to wait until May1. Have a 48 hour EEG coming up next Mon-Wed. decided to stop my volunteer work with the local bus company because I was concerned about being out with a group and having one of my episodes. I was a Mobility Mentor-we go with seniors/disabled on the bus to appointments/shopping/outings. We show them how to ride the bus and help them get there and back home. I'm also the Activities Coordinator for the Mobility Travel Club I set up here in my building-I look for things for the travel club to do and schedules the outings. having one of my episodes and not feeling to hot but don't want to go be alone in my apartment. I will be so glad when we figure out what is going on with me and takes steps to resolve these issues. of course that may not happen, but I am hopeful.
  7. Happy Anniversary ts4759!

  8. Happy Birthday ts4759!

  9. sigh

    another sh^&y day today. was so down this morning I was almost teary. felt like crap but forced myself to go to Walmart which was a mistake. the dizziness, light-headedness are just too much. can't seem to do anything. bending over or stooping down makes me so dizzy I almost fall over. feel like just finding a nice hole to crawl into and a few minutes ago I started getting twitches in my face. that has never happened before. I think I would rather be dead than go through this stuff for the rest of my life. the appts at the VA are few and far between. and let's not forget they think/thought I was making this up.
  10. another day is at hand

    (sigh) here we go again. am up at 5 a.m. ish, looks like I'll be walking around with a bath towel (a slight whatchacallit) today the drooling is on both sides today and heavier than usual. Mother Nature kept me from getting the CPAP thing yesterday. Looks like she feels likie being nice to me today (so far at least. knock on wood). We had our twice a month Social Club meeting last night and I was sitting in the back of the room (as usual evn with not being able to hear very well) and they were talking about having a talent show and guess what I suggested we have?......come on you can guess...starts with talent.....I raised my hand and was recognized by the club Prez., and suggested we have a talent show! :Doh: I felt like such an idiot when she said that is what they were discussing. who knew? have an apt with the rehab Dr. on 4/16, maybe we'll get something going, an apt with my PCP on 4/17 don't expect to get much stroke help that day , and see my pal the nuerologist (same one who said they thought I had been/was making all this up), on 4/20.
  11. 4/2

    not realy sure why I am doing thisblog stuff........was up at 2:30 this morning. still can't sleep. :pullhair: was really sleepy/drowsy when attempting to use treadmill and while in hottub & pool. right side of face started feeling funny. left arm hurts quite a bit today. go get the CPAP thingy from VA today. so many questions.
  12. I have 2 local teams in March Madness (Gonzaga), all 6 of my brackets have been busted a long time ago LOL
