  1. Hey everyone! I'll see you at 3 pm EST for chat! I hope to see you there. 🙂 http://www.strokechat.net/
  2. Heather, my spoons are like 4 everyday for a few. Oh my goodness this is hard! I really feel like I haven't really done much just got in here. Thank you EVERYONE! When I get things looking better I'll share some progress pictures! Blusey I feel like you have told me your name lol...ok stroke card pull...I think the house warming might be a bit further in the future!
  3. Thanks Asha... I really appreciate you!
  4. Becky!!! I am beyond overjoyed!!! I've done a bit too much the last couple of days and we'll gotta oay the piper. I'm still on cloud 9 though!
  5. I'm all moved into the new place sans organized and in place. My body and brain have been tortured, I'm exhausted, in pain and so freaking excited! I don't think I've had a moment to just take it in. But I wanted to leave you guys an update. 😃 🙌👩‍🔧🙋‍♀️🎉🎊

  9. Hi Jim I know we have introduced ourselves before (in forum or chat I can't remember). I very much relate the intense emotions. Keep your chin up and keep us informed. We are your cheering squad! 📣

    Sue hang in there friend. I'm thinking of you. A electric blanket is possibly a great idea. I do the side Stepping on the stairs too holding on for dear life. My PT used to really fuss at me but my knees are shot and I have a stronger leg and a weaker leg. I have had to do what I have had to do. Thank you for the update.

    I sometimes can close my eyes in the car but not always.

    I am severely affected by riding in a car with a driver. I NEED to be in the front. I can't ride with just anyone. My mom, my sister, my step-dad and that's about it. It takes all of me to keep my anxiety at a manageable level during the ride. Last night...my kitty (who is the love of my life 😳) scared the poo out of me because she was under the bed table. I screamed and she ran away. I had a few moments of gasping for air and crying and then I calmed myself down.

    Oh my gosh I have severe sensory over stimulation in all areas. My startle reflex is out of the park. This is just another reason my GAD and panic attacks can be so often and so bad. 3 days ago I had a full out meltdown panic attack because a moth smacked into my cheek at night. My daughter had to coax me into the house. I can't explain the extreme fear that goes through me.
  15. I wanted to let everyone know that I am so thankful Asha was with you guys today in chat. It's been a 3 day chaos full of full on strokey anxiety attacks and my brain is toast. I slept 12-4 CST so I was not in my host spot. Asha you are an awesome friend for trying to nudge me awake from a long way away, thank you. Extra alarms set for Wednesday chat.
