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

Posted by achandra in achandra's Blog, 31 March 2015 - - - - - - · 12 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...

Volunteering day one part two

Posted by Jayallen in Jayallen's Blog amazing days, 29 March 2015 - - - - - - · 32 views

I know as a patient ambassador we are looking to address patient satisfaction however we walk into the room and ask " how's it going?"
Document the response
My question to the man training me is do we ask any other questions I.e.how is your therapy going? How is your pain management ? How is the food?
Just a few thoughts I know I've missed many any sugges...

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.
so during my second or third comment what I was going to say was gone. this has of course happened before I admitted that it was gone and...

Hi all.

I truly don't like talking about myself, though it seems easy lol. After the woman's chat and doing research at the library I began to look inward and discover that I am truly terrified about dating. I don't like going out in crowds,noise,lights and enjoy going to bed early and staying in bed for hours.(not being romantic but not having the ene...

March Madness and College Basketball Is Just About Over

Posted by fking in fking's Blog, 25 March 2015 - - - - - - · 24 views

Well I have been glued to my TV watching college basketball both men and women games since our local college (Baylor) women is still in it playing real good so far and made it to the final 16.... I didn't make or enter any brackets I just watch the games... There are way too many teams and regions to keep up with that many games, my little brain won't all...

What do I do with my time? Life seems to be full on at present with the new minister not selected yet and a lot of my time taken up with extra church services and of course visiting in nursing homes. I now have nine little old ladies to visit, two of them are personal, a lovely lady Lion who had a stroke and has been in a nursing home now for four years...

Seeking Information

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...

Have workshop will travel. I miss my car.

Posted by SassyBetsy in SassyBetsy's Blog, 20 March 2015 - - - - - - · 72 views

I am determined to go to the workshop this afternoon but this mind foggy fatigue is killing me. Everyone around me is getting some sickness so perhaps I am heading there. I am just so tired. I have been going out so much too. One night I slept 13 hours only getting up a few times for bathroom or pain pills. I blame the sleepiness on the pain pills too....

unemployed - week 1

Posted by lmctrouble in Lynda's thoughts, 20 March 2015 - - - - - - · 46 views

It's been so nice not having to get up at 6:30 every morning (I was never a morning person and the stroke certainly didn't improve that - lol). I get to eat my breakfast at my leisure, do some cleaning and then get to the pool before the hordes of kids and teenagers show up. The stinkleys have really been enjoying having mumma home too as that means the...

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...

Winter is Leaving??

Posted by lwisman in Lin's Musings, 14 March 2015 - - - - - - · 27 views

Snow is almost gone (maybe). As one who has seen snow in April it is difficult to believe winter might actually be over. LOL.

This week I was able to resume my daily walks. Every day there the snow has decreased. At the beginning of the week I had to watch for ice and sometimes move to the street. By this morning I could easily move over the few patches...

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...

Seizueres, Hospital, Survivor and 2 more...

So, I had a few major seizures last week and the doctors gave me Propofol to knock me out of them for a bit because the seizures weren't stopping. I was out for about a day or so, and then awake in the ICU for an additional day. The doctors then moved me out into another part of the hospital for the rest of my recovery. I broke out as soon as I could and...

A CALL FOR PHOTOS

Posted by Onehandcan in Onehandcan's Blog, 09 March 2015 - - - - - - · 49 views

Last year was rather abysmal because, after I broke my heel in February, I was compelled to cancel all my one-handed cooking demonstrations. But its a new year. My heel is almost good as new and I'm eager to get moving again! I now have a dozen or so demos scheduled from now into September and my first one of 2015 is tomorrow at UC Davis Medical Center...

We survived the visitors from Colorado. Gary's niece and his brother flew in last week Wednesday. They were going to pick up a large truck for someone at the airport and drive it back to Colorado on Friday. As with all good plans, everything depends on the weather and it changed dramatically in Colorado from the time his niece booked her flight to the day...
