Short Fuse

Last night was a bad night for us here at home, I get so agitated just for the littlest things and blow up I take it out on my family. I am getting so upset at myself for that happening. I had told them before that I would control my temper.   I had done it for some time controlling my temper but last night was a bad one and we had a long family talk and my eldest son told me I had told them that would not happen anymore.I feel so ashamed about that, not keeping my word to them. He left a

Strange day !!!

Yesterday it was a strange day here in California. It started out to be a nice day nice weather, but we were told it is going to rain by the news casters.   I started to do things around the house dusting/ cleaning and stuff. then it got cloudy and man oh man the rain just started to come down. After that we had a Earthquake that was really strange not the Earthquake but just the timing of it it was small but we felt it I was sitting here on my computer and it started to shake rattle a

Nervous

I think there were some that misinterpret my Blog Yea I get nervous about possibly having another stroke but there is nothing I can do. I had one and am pulling through it and maybe if I were to have another one I would get my permanent disability even quicker just a little humor about me still fighting for it there is abousolutly nothing I can do to prevent another one from happening. I just thought I would share what I had felt and heard about my friend having another one.   Thanks

Nervous

I just found out that one of the woman at the hospital support group that I go to has had another stroke .   Thats makes me nervous to think that could happen to me, so I am now thinking all the time am I going to have another stroke?   I know in one of my writings I said if I do I do but now it is finally hitting me it can happen at anytime. But now I have my guard up and watching every move I make and starting to really eat healthy and will start to do some exercises.

Boring

It has been raining here in California for the past couple of days when I am inside the house I get real bored. My Daughter had a Basketball game on Sat, but the game was canceled after the 1st half due to roof leaking and the safety of the girls they were wining anyways as usual. News says it will be raining till at least Thurs or Fri we never get this much rain all at one time. I guess i'll keep myself busy here on the Strokenetwork

Support Group

I went to my support group this morning and we did lots of talking about the % of having another Stroke. We all came to the same conclusion that if a survivor takes care of him/herself it would be a low percentage. Eating the right foods and Keeping away from you bad habits, Smoking / Drinking the percemntage rate would be low . Then we made some nice Valentine gifts for our Caregiver / Spouse. oh yea I won a T- shirt for getting the most answers on a crossword puzzle
