    I love your writing, have you thought about writing novel, you express your thoughts so eloquently. I am glad you had good conversation about liliac with your husband. I admire all of you caregivers in our life, thanks to you guys we survivors have somewhat normalcy in our life. Asha
  7. Recently I watched very inspiring talk given by girl who lost her leg in senseless robbery & train accident. It was quite amazing to hear her talk about ordeal she went through. after she was thrown off moving train for resisting her gold chain robbery & she fell on track & losing her leg in process. Anyhow after she got treated with prosthetic leg, being national volleyball athlete she decided she would climb mount Everest with her prosthetic leg. Think about courage she had. one line stuck with me you are handicapped because of your limiting thoughts & not by your physical ability. I was telling hubby about this girl's amazing journey & he said something very interesting lot of times in life we stop ourselves thinking OMG this is so hard and I can't do it, & when you push it through it & do it that's your mount Everest. I know in course of my day I go through many limiting thoughts, if I remember his line that this is my mount Everest, it will give me that courage strength to push past my fears. Asha

    Kelli : its acceptance phase you are struggling with, is that all my life will be mount to? but once you stop resisting, accept & go with flow, you will find out that life will open up lot of new opportunities & things will turn out to be better than you ever imagined. yes some things are less than desirable, but whatever things you are left with is more attractive. Try to be better person you were the day before. Only competition we have is with our own self. be best mom, grandma, daughter, friend. hope you feel better soon. Asha
  9. Tracy : I already like it, it is close to your dad too which is good plus you both can help each other out if ever need comes. at the end of the day you need place place to sleep, eat & be happy Asha

    My husband deserves all the credit, not only he was my caregiver in the beginning,but in true sense he is my cheerleader, enabler & great dad who took care of his family with full gusto, till I recovered my wits back. I am forever grateful to him. Asha

    Tracy : I am glad things are going pretty well for you, I have heard once very wiseman say this "obstacles will be there". but he believed obstacles were there to make sure how badly you want certain things, & if you want something bad enough you will keep on working & find a way around it, so he used to say obstacles are there for "other people" 🙂 not for him. google Randy Pausch and his last lecture on youtube,very inspiring guy. I had read book on cognative therapy quite impressive Asha
  13. hi Tom : welcome to best online stroke support group, every stroke is different & so is its effects & recovery, though I have found emotionally we all bleed same & look for same thing. My stroke was massive & it left me with lasting physical deficits, even though I had great supportive family. I still felt very lonely in my journey. finding this site & meeting other members was biggest booster for me accepting my new normal & making best out of it. I stroked at age 34 which left me paralyzed on my left side, & retired me from the job I loved the most. I found logging & chatting very therapeutic for my soul. We do have chats here every day afternoon from 3-4 EST & evening 8-9EST. I also host evening chats from 8-9PM in our survivor room & coffee shop Wednesday & Friday. please join us & feel the difference in your emotional outlook on life. Asha

    Sue you will be in my thoughts & prayers, though one of our dear family member was also diagnosed with thyroid cancer decade ago , & her husband & both of her children are doctors, her treating doctor told her that if my family has to get cancer I wish they will get thyroid cancer its easily treatable & curable cancer. so keep faith & don't make Ray look bad, he has taught you how to live with courage even after going through so many troubles himself. so you have to make him feel proud of you. and teach this diseases lesson of picking on strong opponent. hugs, Asha
