After The New Year

Posted by tmciriani in My Journey Within, 14 January 2017 - - - - - - · 39 views

Things are all quiet now after the holidays and I have been more tired than ever needing a nap each day this week. I'm still in the process of some psych med changes and that doesn't help. My husband has been working nights during his training at his new job but this will end soon. Our king size bed feels really big when he's not there with me. I think I...

Time to think some new thoughts

Posted by HostSue in Sue's Sentiments, 12 January 2017 - - - - - - · 29 views

I am a born nurturer. I had thirteen years looking after my dear Ray before he died, I thought that was the end of my caregiving days but somehow I just go on caring for people, not in my home, not every day but as the need arises. I do this partly as the pastoral worker for my church and partly out in the community with the friends I have made in the d...

I am Not a Paid Caregiver

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 11 January 2017 - - - - - - · 47 views

I take care of my stroke survivor husband... been his caregiver since his stroke in 2004. I do not want a job as a caregiver to others. Caregiving is exhausting, but I do it out of commitment and obligation. When I get a break from it and leave him with paid caregivers, I don't want to spend my time taking care of someone else............I need the breaks...

The Tortoise and The Hare

Posted by Strokewife in Strokewife's Blog, 10 January 2017 - - - - - - · 110 views

One day a hare was bragging about how fast he could run. He bragged and bragged and even laughed at the tortoise; who was so slow. The tortoise stretched out his long neck and challenged the hare to a race, which, of course, made the hare laugh.  
"My, my, what a joke!" thought the hare. "A race, indeed, a race. Oh! What fun! My, my! a race, of cour...

So here is my first blog for year 2017, its copy of post I posted in forum when blog was not available & I needed to blog.  Usually I like to blog about my life every now & then & love the support I get in the form of comments which always encouraged me to post more positives of my life. When I first came t...

Things I'm grateful for, there are many, change for me every day; the list is ever growing.

Gratitude for me can be as simple as being able to feel the sun on my face, or hearing a bird sing, to the warmth I feel when I get a hug. (At this moment it's the imitation snowflakes falling on the screen!)

An 'attitude of gratitude' is a wonderful thing...

One phone call

Posted by GeorgeLesley in Gizmo, Gadget Guy, 15 December 2016 - - - - - - · 34 views

My oh my how one phone call can change things. Last week I had an ultra sound of my liver. The local va has been watching a spot on my liver for almost two years now. This last six month check showed it has grown a bit. My doc called 4 hours after the test and said he wanted an mri to be sure. He does not feel it is serious but wants the mri to see exactl...

Let it Snow!!

Posted by lwisman in Lin's Musings, 10 December 2016 - - - - - - · 26 views

The first snow of the season came on Sunday December 4. When I left home at 8:30 am there was no snow. When I came out of the building at 10:30 my car was covered with snow. Of course, the snow removal tool was not in the car. So I used my hand (in glove) to wipe the snow off the back window. The wind shield wipers and hot air vents finished the snow remo...

Well before we can all say Santa Claus Christmas will be upon us and a brand new year too, yea 2017 is ready to come on in our lives and homes.... The new car ideas will be running through our minds making us think do we want to get in big debt to have a brand new car or truck???? I guess it all depends on your income level and with that said I have to ke...

A busy but satisfying weekend

Posted by heathber in heather's Blog - Heather was here, 04 December 2016 - - - - - - · 570 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...

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...

I have been retired for 5 months. It is funny but I do not have time to miss work. People ask me occasionally if zi miss work. I tell them that I am too busy taking care of me husband to miss work. I find that I am,

Do You Believe in Angels?

Posted by SweetMom in SweetMom's Blog, 15 November 2016 - * * * * * · 479 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...

A good status change

Posted by scottm in scottm's Blog, 31 October 2016 - * * * * * · 597 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 - - - - - - · 592 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...

One Year Reunion

Posted by stockflyer in Stockflyer's Blog of Success, 26 October 2016 - - - - - - · 527 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...
