    Ray, for me, that year has gone by so quickly! You do seem to be making progress, keep it up! 💚

    Awesome Alan! So glad your doc has come to the party! 💚
  4. I have been quite down lately. It's all in a roundabout way, rona's fault. Even coming here, where I feel safe and protected has been difficult. Hopefully this week I will be able to spill my guts... Miss you and love you all 💚

    I'd like to see the chevelle. Kelli might know where the instructions are for posting a photo? 💚

    It's gorgeous, but yes the steps do cause a problem. It's amazing how people can look at things and make use in a different way. Not me.
  7. Hi The a. Please don't feel guilty about looking after yourself and finding a hobby. As a survivor, there can be guilt in how the lives of our caregivers are turned upside down. To have my husband and kids have their own interests and time for themselves is extremely important to me. 💚

    Pushing too hard is something we don't tend to notice until its happened. Hope you are able to work out a routine that invigorates you but doesn't fatigue. 💚
  9. Yay Heather! I was just watching The Business on ABC and theywere talking about gyms. One gym guy was astounded that the pokies were open but not gyms. Apparently people are spending their super on gambling. Crazy world. So glad you know a date for the gym. 💚

    Alan and Willis I'm getting a recumbent exercise bike!! I'm just a little excited!!
  11. Tracy, I've just reread this thread. I too, had a CT early days. And it showed nothing. I'm beginning to think a CT shouldn't be used for the brain. It took another two weeks after the CT to discover the lesion. I don't know how you coped for so long with no diagnosis. 💚

    I was on Facebook the other day, and a post came up with these photos of a greenhouse in Canada. I thought of you Kev, that maybe you'd like to see them.

    How exciting!! It will be great for you, being single storey and having an accessible bathroom. Your wife will love a brand new kitchen!! All the best with deciding what NOT to keep! 🥰

    I loved the fact my children grew in my tummy, and "survived" in there because of my choices, food wise especially. The other side of being a woman, however... I'm unwell at the moment, women stuff, and I have menopause to look forward to as well!! Again, so many upsides. Two well adjusted, thoughtful human beings that I'm proud to say they call me mum. 💚

    Sleep pattern meep blattern. Every time I think my sleep pattern is getting nearly in tune with the rest of the 'normal' world, things seem to go south very quickly. One day.

    Hey Willis!! Part of the problem could be your AGE!! Happy 70th birthday!! You are officially in the 70s club!! It's very unfortunate when the list on the fridge doesn't match the list the body is able to complete!

    Kelli is right. "What if" is the enemy. Razr you got it going on. "Extend yourself some grace" Beautiful words. I'm gonna steal that from time to time. It goes with my quote from Tracy perfectly. "I am where I need to be today". Thanks for that Tracy. Love your guts. 💜

    Florida? You take care, Wayne.

    Madade, weight is a battle I don't always feel like fighting. Not with so many other uphill battles going on. Loving the irises. Such a pretty colour.
  22. Hey Jono!! One thing we have all learnt, as that is realistic goal setting. Looking forward to sharing the journey, young fella.

    I'm going to have to read that a few times I think Heather. If it's a switchboard, it makes sense of my deficits, including the hemiparesis.

    Heather I'm pretty sure the chemist said the new medication...riiiight.... He said the new meds will affect my fatigue levels... Explains so much!! I am officially the dumbest person on the planet!!! No wonder I've been extra tired!! Yes, Bec and Willis! Definitely NO more for me!!

    So I've been going over some old Neuro reports, as I'm applying for ndis, a funding program here in Australia. The Neuro said this: Janelle is a moderately overweight, rather large framed, middle aged lady. Hmmmm...I can handle overweight, I'm not blind, and large framed, that's true. But middle aged?? Come on!! This was in 2017. I was 45. I have lost 10kg since then, but I'm also 3 years closer to 50!! Back to my question. I'm not dumb, but I really cannot understand doctor speak. To read what certain parts of the brain are responsible for confuses me no end. The Neuro wrote that he doesn't think my lesion is in my thalamus, like I've always thought, but the internal capsule. I can't believe my brain has only just registered this part of the report. So a kid could understand, what does the internal capsule do?
