A busy but satisfying weekend

Posted by heathber in heather's Blog - Heather was here, 04 December 2016 - - - - - - · 12 views

After being reminded that I meant to try to get some more social contacts after a thread from Marcia (Newlease) reminded me. I got onto "meetup" last week and today I went to a creative craft afternoon. "Christmas card collage" It was held at an inner suburban cafe, 8 people I'd never met before sitting at a big table cutting and pasting and chatting just...

Well yesterday started out like any normal day except I was doing a little housework for I was getting ready to go to my son's to be with him for his dad ( my ex husband) and his new girlfriend were leaving the next day for a flight to catch a cruise. So running around and doing cleaning wasn't anything new. I work better rushed and have done so in clean...

Hypnotherapy Seems to Be Helping

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 03 December 2016 - - - - - - · 14 views

While I still have a lot of work to do on the relaxation efforts and practicing my self-hypnosis to go to my happy place when I need to de-stress, at least the weight loss part of the sessions have helped. I'm on my own until I need a booster session, but so far - one month into this and I'm down 16 lb. I was hoping for 20 but I'll work harder this n...

Angels without wings

Posted by HostSue in Sue's Sentiments, 03 December 2016 - - - - - - · 25 views

We all have angels in our lives, not the heavenly kind but the earthly kind, the people who bring us hope. I went to my second most favorite day of the year, the day of the WAGS (Working Age group for Stroke) Christmas party. This is my second favorite day because it is a festive and fabulous day of friendship, food and dancing! Today we had a large gathe...

War of attrition, over and I won

Posted by Jayallen in Jayallen's Blog amazing days, 01 December 2016 - - - - - - · 85 views

I received a call from a worker at local SSA office.

My disability is APPROVED.

Only 3 year. Now I can get on with my life.
Happier dance. I would like to kick my heels but I know I would end up falling not worth trying.

Now I can breathe.

In the morning I will get 2nd Radiofrequency Ablation. I am exhausted since my poor roomie with dementia loves to be craziest at night. I have a lovely patio room I decorated with my art and collages so I choose not to switch rooms as this SNF offers as a solution regardless of the fact she verbally torments me. In fact when I holla back to stfu then I ab...

Its been about 3 weeks since my hysterectomy and I am feeling better and better. This time of year is hard for me though both before and after the stroke. 1st it's never been the same since my divorce and 2nd I had my first super set back just a couple of weeks before Christmas when I had a mega panic attack and had psychogenic stuttering constant for 1 a...

Posted by achandra in achandra's Blog, 29 November 2016 - - - - - - · 26 views

In my last blog I was talking about adjusting to all new changes in our life, agreed they were just inconveniences and not disaster. Sue's comment on my last blog is about adjusting our sail to wind of change in our life was so perfect thanks. also read another beautiful quote on change "The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings"...

Christmas Is Just Around The Corner And Over The Hill

It's almost that time of the year again while many folks are still shopping for bargains where ever they can find them...... Yes Christmas is coming pretty fast and the weather hasn't changed very much in my neck of the woods..... Football games are being played while many folks have done their shopping for gifts and decorations for their homes, roof tops...

Do You Believe in Angels?

Posted by SweetMom in SweetMom's Blog, 15 November 2016 - * * * * * · 461 views

Do You Believe in Angels? I do, and this is why:
When I was 12 years old, we had just moved half way across the country from California to Texas. It was my 3 biological siblings and my stepbrother, my mom and my stepfather. My stepsister still lived in California. We were a Military family. Disciplined. My little brother and I had just began to walk b...

The evening started off just like any other evening. But on this particular night the sky painted itself with an array of pink, salmon, lilac, gold, orange, and vanilla. We sat and ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chips, and a fruit cup all while we admired the continual changing colors of the sky. While we sat next to one another both of us were...

A good status change

Posted by scottm in scottm's Blog, 31 October 2016 - * * * * * · 580 views

I've been waiting to see if my change of physical status was a transitory thing we get from time to time or more long term. Seems at this point it may be more of a long term healing effect.

Every since this started my right side has been weak and very prone to uncoordinated movement. However, for the last couple weeks my right leg has been more coordinat...

Abandoned and disheartened

Posted by Crusader8 in Crusader8's Blog, 29 October 2016 - - - - - - · 572 views

I had my first stroke in April 2016 in my home in Arcadia Ca. I tried to downplay what was happening as the symptoms were not sever. None the less, my wife called 911. I spent the night in the hospital and was told the following day that I indeed suffered a stroke. However minor, it was still a stroke. No permanent or temporary physical impairments. Jus...

Gearing Up!

Posted by lwisman in Lin's Musings, 28 October 2016 - - - - - - · 54 views

It is fall and we are headed into winter. So it is time to get stuff done before the weather gets nasty. Nothing like making a doctor’s appointment and then be faced by snow!

This week I saw a neurosurgeon. I had not seen one seen one since 1998. In 1998 I was told me I no longer needed a neurosurgeon. He (who did my surgery) has probably retired, and I...

One Year Reunion

Posted by stockflyer in Stockflyer's Blog of Success, 26 October 2016 - - - - - - · 510 views


The hospital where I went when I had my stroke and spent a couple weeks on the rehab floor had their annual rehab "party". I thought it may be a little lame but it was really nice. I didn't see any who was there when I was as a patient but I got to see a lot of the nurses, aids, doctors. I think they like to see how far everyone had come. It must...

Exploring the Possibilities

Posted by Pearls in When your soul dies, 24 September 2016 - * * * * * · 381 views

Leave no stone unturned. There was a time when I was younger and without a physical disability. I always tried new things. Somewhere along the way I started to accept the status quo but if you don't try new things, you stay in the same old place. As long as you are alive you can move forward. You will not always succeed but failure is just another steppin...

Lost crown on a back molar

Posted by williamharris in williamharris' Blog, 18 September 2016 - - - - - - · 422 views

This happened3 weeks ago. Our dentist was on vacation therefore the office could only put the crown back on with temporary glue. The temp job lasted three days. So we had it put on temporarily twice. Finally the dentist comes back and William refuses to go. I had to cancel the appointment. I reschedule for next week. The office wants me to buy temp g...

The Alfa is gone....

Posted by GeorgeLesley in Gizmo, Gadget Guy, 15 September 2016 - - - - - - · 72 views

Yesterday I sold my 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider convertible I once posted pics of here. It just did not fit our new much travel lifestyle. Sitting here in the garage only used a few times a year made no sense, so I sold it. I really did not feel sorrow watching it go down the driveway for the last time. Our plans now include so much travel in our motor home th...
