She's Baaaack...

I just checked the date on my last post, and it has been nearly two years since I posted anything on my blog. I wish I had a good reason for not posting, but I don't.

 

I miss this blog...I think I need the outlet.

 

As I write this today, I realize that I am about three weeks away from my five year stroke anniversary, and I am feeling bit reflective. The truth of the matter is, I really have been more reflective about things since I had a stroke. This has all resulted in a total personality change (at least in my opinion). I no longer find the need to reach for anger first. Mostly, I try to sort things out before I do anything else. Okay...now I am rambling, and I will stop.

 

The thing I have missed the most about visiting this site is the community. I really miss the connections to people who share my experience. I still struggle daily with things related to my stroke, and I worry sometimes that people get tired of hearing about it. I worry that they think, "Good Lord. It has been five years. It is time to move on." I have never been a person to really care about what people think and, frankly, I still don't; however, I just don't want to burn people out.

You can't burn us out, we got our own fires burning. That's why we are all here together as leaning post to hold each other up from time to time. I just made 6 years in January. Congratulations on your up coming 5 years.

 

I hope you are getting much stronger and your parts are moving and working. I just can't seem to put my cane down, but I think one day I can walk without it. Hope everything is well with you and family.
