  1. kelli : This is such a sad news, & blow to his family & his trokenet family. Steve made best lemonade possible out f his lemons by creating this wonderful stroke support group which pulled off so many people out of their helplessness & despair. I know it helped me immensely when I found it I needed it at age 34 where I thought how this kind of things happen to person who does not smoke, drink or fat & having good job & young family at home how can stroke happen to me, till I met Steve. He was so inspiring, instead of dwelling on why me, he got busy in he
  2. kelli : Thanks for letting all of us know & glad you will be attending funeral & meeting Missy, please pass our condolences to Missy & her family. Steve was amazing guy, proud husband,father & grandfather. It is amazing that even after he lost so much at very young age, he created this online support group. He saved so many lives by creating this particular platform for stroke survivors & caregivers to meet & share their experience. As you know I stroked at young age of 34 which left me paralyzed on my left side, unable to drive, even though I h

    science of well being

    I have signed up for this free course on coursera for science of well being, taught by Yale professor & it is required class for Yale students. It is great course, I wish it will be required course for all kids & human beings to learn how our brain works. I feel after my stroke when I was very unhappy with my life, slowly & steadily with trial & errors I found great books, support group & found my happy place again, & while doing this course & my life experiences, I am learning scientific support for it, as if to say kido you are on your right track. recently

    Sue : I am so happy all is well & nothing to worry about.

    nancy : I am glad surgery went well & Dan & family helped. It feels so sad hearing this young juveniles trapped in vicious cycle of broken family & drugs & are not able to break the chain of poverty & bad choices. recently watched amazing documentary 13th on youtube learned some history & realized how these politicians have used black lives previously it was for slavery & now putting them in prison for petty crimes Asha
  7. recently I connected with my childhood friend in India on facebook & that inadvertently brought in friend who was relentlessly teasing me & professing love for me in those teenage young years in India . I ended up just talking with the guy at that time to make him stop that endless teasing, luckily as soon I went into engineering school, he realized & gave up the chase. So I nicely finished my Engineering college with peace & married the guy my parents chose for me. Now fast forward 30 years & he finds me back on facebook & starts talking & I thought hopefully

    kelli : I agree with heather you should use google sheet & make income & expenses statement & budgeting. lot of time we need to differentiate between our needs & wants & while grocery shopping paying attention & buying right product & using coupons available to reduce bills also helps, being mindful about our spending do we need amazon prime or netflix subscriptions. Its good to have great family support but its good to be responsible fr one's self. you are brave women & doing great job. Asha

  14. Happy New year every one. 2020 is finally over & 2021 is here, & I realized our son is my guardian angel who saved my life multiple times. First time when he was born he was such a big baby & way too comfortable inside, sot they had to induce me so that our prince will be born but he started to show sign of discomfort so doctors had decided to do c-section, and he was born at 9-1/2 lb & 22 inch long baby, so I ended up in the hospital for 5 days on bed rest & even though I had hole in heart everything was fine & we came home happy. second time I had

    Happy New year to you George, you were spot on. I felt I am reading my own thoughts or what. I also believe when we get out of our comfort zone & do things that's when growth happens in life. I also feel 2020 was not that of bad year at-least for our family, will blog about it Asha
