Angry Today



There are certain dates that are inevitable; i.e., my daughter's 25th birthday is today. I'm feeling very angry at this body that has betrayed me because I am physically unable to drive the 30-some odd miles to see her, maybe take her to dinner - whatever. I've already spoken to her, and she in no way thinks worse of me; I DO MYSELF!! :Argh:

hey Susan:


wish her Happy Birthday from all of us, maybe you can ask her to come to your town & both of you can go out for dinner.

Susan, it is not only stroke that prevents you from doing what you want. I have just spent time with my daughter who lives 1700 miles away from me. I can't be with her on her birthday either.


From our experience you have to compensate by sending a package or a funny card or arranging a time ahead when you will phone. I know it is not the same as being there.


Having said that I can't imagine what it is like for you as I haven't had a stroke, but have looked after Ray for eight years so we share the restrictions somewhat.

Due to circumstances (not stroke related) both my Mom and Sister live too far away to be together on special dates. It does suck and I often get upset, but what can one do? My sister and I do try to get together some time during the year and we sure make that time together worth it!!!
