1st Anniversary approaching



As my 1st anniversary of my stroke approaches, I have to count my blessings that I have made the progress that I have.


My Doctor told me that with the type of stroke that I had, I should be in a wheelchair.


My left arm and leg continue to give me problems but I try to work thru them.


I am not sure if they are phantom or caused by fatigue.


I was in an interview when my stroke occurred, I thought I was having a panic attack.


Needless to say it was not a panic attack and I did not get the job.


I am not working now and some day I hope to get back in the job market.


I have a MRI coming up and hopefully everthing is looking good.


If I have to have another angiogram I think I'll scream. It's not the test it's having to lay still for 6 hours after.

Congrats on beating a bad prognosis!


How scarred is the person that interviewed you? Have you considered applying there again, just to mess with them? Alright, that was uncalled for dark humor.
