    Gosh this is such a tough one. I definitely have been on the receiving and giving side of this. Some examples are my conversations with my daughter not to long post stroke. We both said things that we wish we could have taken back and we have both reacted in negative ways. I think for both of us we fall into both sides. I know (PBA 😆😭🤬) was a common reaction from me especially earlier post stroke. I truly know that I can not help/stop it at those moments. I have also found myself being unusually harsh/hurtful in how I express my reaction and my feelings at the moment got away with me. I'm pret
  5. Sue you are so very right. We are truly blessed and you my friend are a wonderful blessing. Not only for your Ray but to so many here that have been touched by your kind heart. Rest peacefully Ray, and I know personally that I am so happy you continue to be a shining light here! ❤️
  6. Janelle, lady I feel for you! I have dealt with several of these unfortunately. Trust me... I so know what "if it isn't one thing it's another" feels like. Heck, lol, seems for a while now my body seems to be falling apart piece by piece. I sure hope some of your news is positive soon! Keep on keeping on. ❤️

    This entire thread resinates with me! Before my ex did a very not nice thing (a year after my stroke) and I left him and pursued my disability and my life... I had never lived alone. Seriously never. I was always the budget maker etc. Now my budget making skills are lacking a lot due to executive function defecits from the stoke. In other words I suck at it. Once I did get my disability. I had to utilize every bit of help I could find and now I live in my own home (OK one side of a duplex but it's my home). I am responsible for 100% of my bills, needs, wants, desires, etc. With just SSDI it is
  10. Willis thank you! Yes, we ARE survivors and we Are fighters. I agree... It's so easy to lose sight of our survivor blessing. We deal with struggles, life happenings, and just like any human we get caught up in our world. When my sister told me this yesterday it just smacked me in the face. My heart was instantly hurt. My sister said she didnt understand that he was talking and sipping water before he made it to the hospital and declined. I explained to her that stroke is stealthy and vicious it doesn't always get to its worst immediately and once it goes to that point of no return it steals a
  11. Today, I visited my sister at her office. She is a real estate agent. One of her co-workers is a super kind lady, her name is Bonnie. My sister told me that Bonnie's husband just had a massive stroke that affected the center of his brain. He is on life support and after testing his brain function the reality became clear. His Dr. explained that he is basically brain dead and the only thing to keep his heart beating is the life support. He will only be in a vegetative state if left to live on life support. So, Bonnie is in the process of allowing the Dr's to remove his life support so he can pa
