how do you handle what do you do after stroke quetion

Recommended Posts

Today while watching morning show they were discussing how in Europe when people are asked about what you do, they answer it by telling their hobbies & not what job they do. I know for me biggest trouble after my stroke was my decision to go on disability & early retirement from my work life. It was huge mental anguish & adjustment to accept who I had become after my stroke. I never knew how much importance I had paid to my self worth based on what I did pre-stroke & made money pre-stroke. It took solid toll on my emotional psyche. So It was very interesting to me when they said in Europe people say their hobbies & not job they do. I was very sensitive to that particular issue, so very watchful about not getting so wrapped in roles I play in my life like mom, wife,sister, daughter. need to get my self worth because I am child of God & not any roles I play in life.
