  1. Hello, I am new here also. you are not alone. I think we have all had those thoughts. Everything will work out.
  2. Thanks Heather for your positive words of encouragement. I don't mean to make my daughter sound so petty Really She's not. It's more me then her. I look in the mirror and I don't even recognize myself any more. I am so glad I found this site I am reading the posts all the time trying to find answers to this stroke thing.So far, I have gotten a lot of great advice. I am so desperate to find me again I believe I will in time Thanks again and GOD BLESS. Jan
  3. when I was in the Rehab Hospital, I was told that I have Left side neglect.. I would only Look to the right side. The Therapist attached a mirror to the right side of my wheel chair and wrote in big red letters T U R N to remind me to look to the left.He also put a sign on my chair that said" please stand to my left side when speaking to me".
  4. I Tend to worry more than the normal person. My concerns right now are of my daughter's up comming wedding. I don't want to embarrass her with my funny walk and drawn arm. I am working with my P T to get a better posture.We stand in front of a mirror, get my stance right and hold my hands together in front of me. looks acceptable.My P T is the best! whatever my concerns, She says "Let's work on that.". Any advice? The wedding is still 5 months away, but I will worry every day until then. Thanks. Jan

  6. Tracy, I'M not sure, I will post something,go back to check spelling,then go back to check punctuation and then back again to check spelling and punctuation.Is this OCD? If so,then I have it!And back again to check everything just to be sure.
  7. Fred and Kelli, You can always watch the race on T V. you will certainly have a comfortable seat out of the rain. It is raining today.
  8. Although I have lived in and around BRISTOL all my life, I have never been to a race. I did volunteer work one time to raise money for my daughter's cheer leaders team.We like to drive by the track on race day to see all the people having fun.
  9. THERE IS A LOT OF ACTIVITY AROUND MY NEIGHBORHOOD.THIS IS RACE WEEK AT Bristol Motor Speedway. The world's fastest half mile track". I live about 2 miles from the track. Soon ,there will be thousands of people coming in heavy,heavy traffic. This happens twice a year Spring and Fall. I LOVE IT!!
  10. Thanks Benni and Scott, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.My at home therapy was to sit in a recliner with my legs straight out and then pull my legs back until my feet were on the foot rest. I did this over and over. It helped a lot. At first I had to pull my left leg back with my right hand. It gets easier with practice.
  11. Scott, I think you understand my problem. I back up to the passenger side seat sit down with my legs out the door and feet on the pavement. I pull my legs up and back, bent at the knees and into the car.I know it must sound strange but this is so hard for me to do. Also, could be the hip I had a replacement a few months ago after a fall that broke my hip.
  12. Benni, I have a problem bending my leg backward. when getting in the car I have trouble bending my leg to get in.My husband says you have to learn to bend that leg at the same time he is picking my leg up and into the car. How can I learn. If someone always does it for me?
  13. Hi Tracy, I am Jan the new girl on the site. Thanks for sharing your recipe. It makes me hungry and envious at the same time, because I can not cook just yet I have not cooked for three years now. BUT I WILL! SOON.
  14. Hi everyone I am new to this. I have visited this site as a guest many times.My friends call me Jan. I hope to get to know all of you. I enjoy reading the posts. I have learned a lot already. Again, this is new to me so please forgive all the mistakes. Thanks Jan

      Kelli, I do have a question, I have noticed that some of the posts go back months ago. Is it alright to still respond?
