I GUESS THAT YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS A MYTH THAT IS GOING AROUND :roadrage: TWO IN FACT :Ask: I am sure that you already know this :Nodding: but I will tell you anyway :secret: myth number one if you don"t get recovery within 8 mounths you will never get it :I-Thank-You: this is not true in fact I have been in recovery for 11 years and I am still getting better :Nodding: so in factit never really stopsgetting better :Clap-Hands: myth number two oh wow sorry to hear of your stroke I think that your life is over :Scratch-Head: no in fact you can make life and even enjoy your life I was told bymy doctor that if I m not walking I probably won"t get it :kicking: hey guess what I'm walking, and hey guess what I am enjoying life and even though it has been 11years I am still getting better :Nodding: so you see there is a lot of myth about your stroke and your recovery :groupwave: life is what you make ityou can be happy with lots of hope or you can be sad with no hope but whatever you decide don"t listen to the myth it will only make yousad and I choose to be happy and you can to life can be good if you want it to be what is your choice?

Thank you! I will never forget that my manager said to me, shortly after the stroke "Your life will be over when Ray comes home". From that point on he worked to discredit me, laying the groundwork to fire me. It took eight months, but I knew he had given up on me instantly. Now, every time we go on a cruise, or an Amtrak trip, or an out of state wedding, I think of him and laugh. I am grateful that he freed me to get on with the rest of our life together.

Lenny, thank you once again for the reminders. It is true the docotrs can tell us what happened, they can discuss the reasons behind it but they cannot predict our future or foretell our future happiness.

 

We should do our best to prove them wrong!

LENNY, GREAT POST, THE TRUTH IS: DOCTORS JUST DON'T KNOW. WE WEREN'T SUPPOSE TO LIVE EITHER ,BUT WE PROVED THEM WRONG AND NOW THEY HAVE TO GO BACK AND DO MORE RESEARCH TO FIGURE OUT, WHY WE SURVIVED. IT'S BEEN 16 YEARS FOR ME, BUT I AM STILL IMPROVING. NEVER GIVE UP!
