Doc Said He Would Be Lion Hearted

Posted by SassyBetsy in SassyBetsy's Blog, 17 April 2015 - - - - - - · 20 views

Are there still knights in shining armor? I went to my doc appointment today with so much fear and apprehension and yes a bitter disappointed disillusioned heart dragging along behind me. I lost one pound so hey yay the appointed started off right (snicker here) and so I go in telling the nurse the mile long list of things--the referrals that didn't go...

Six Months Later...

Posted by Punch1021 in Punch1021's Blog, 15 April 2015 - - - - - - · 37 views

April 11 made six months since I had my last stroke. I cried so much just thinking about last year. I haven't cried like that since I was in the hospital. I thought I had healed some mentally but nope. The wounds of last year are still fresh. My ex told me I am still recovering. Only decent thing they have said to me. I have been in denial about my own re...

Thinking "peach"

Posted by HostSue in Sue's Sentiments, 14 April 2015 - - - - - - · 42 views

Many years ago this site I posted a blog in which I compared talking to people who are friendly, interested and concerned but not quite on the same wavelength as being like people thinking about a pie,. Yum we say, but you are thinking blueberry and I am thinking peach. That is where I find myself right now. I had a few days down with my daughter and it w...

Was thinking the other day, ya ya I'm deep ;-)

I was thinking about my stroke the other day, and how I wasn't really scared while it was happening. I know that's a strange thing to say but it's true. Sitting in my office at work having supper while my wife while the stroke onset was happening (and I wasn't scared) while I felt my body starting to shut down. I was thinking just how much this was going...

I went to a dance club with my best friend and I was totally excited. Well I feel my friendship was put to the test over this.
We went to dinner and had a great time. Had cranberry juice in a fancy glass.

Started out great. We sat outside in the by the 'fireplaces' and felt really good with my ear plugs in. It really wasn't packed full of people.

Day 1 (it's really 36 hours)

My Memphis adventure did not start well. Woke up to two inches of "slurpee" which I had to drive in to get to the train station - a trip that would normally take about an hour wound up being an hour and a half. Finally made it to the station with five minutes to spare only to find out the train was running a half hour late....

During March two of our contributors resigned (both claiming health reasons). So I put together a page on positions open. If anyone reading this is interested here i...

how every one handles their grief differently in west & in east

Posted by achandra in achandra's Blog, 31 March 2015 - - - - - - · 55 views

in our latest trip to India to be with our family in this grieving time I realized how every one handles grief differently. I could see my sister in law still in denial & talking about my brother-in-law as if he is still alive, and keeps herself busy with housework & doing rituals after her husband. She was not comfortable talking about her feelin...

hi all, I went to a book discussion group tonite. the book was catcher in the rye and this is the second meeting of the group. I usually have a bit to say about the book in question and I particularly liked this book.

We are looking into buying a Myomo robotic arm brace for my wife, whose left arm was left useless by a stroke in October 2013. I wonder if anyone here has any experience with or knowledge of this high-tech device. Also if you have any insights into price I would love to hear them. My wife has been evaluated and found to be a suitable candidate for the Myo...

To my family and friends who've been following my progress here, I'm sorry for the long gap between my posts regarding my fatigue issues an reporting on my sleep study results. I had hoped to resolve sleeping problems before posting, but, that will most likely be yet another long while.

The good news is, the sleep study showed that I do NOT have many o...

Hello Everyone!!
How shameful of me to get so far away from this site!! I used to come often and read everything I could. But then I just got extra busy. A lot has happened since my last blog in January. We are just now coming to an end to some of the therapy and we will have to wait for about five or six months to start another round. There is a cap...

So tired....

My wife suffered her first stroke about four years ago. She has since had three TIAs, the last a couple of months ago. While not a full-blown stroke, she had more residuals and needed some PT/OT.

The hardest thing for me is the personality changes. Or maybe a better word is an increase in intensity. She is an abuse survivor and thus tends to be pretty s...
