    Thank you both. I will definitely tell my doctor when I see him next. Might be time for another mri. 💚👑

    Interesting Heather. I have come to the conclusion that the WA country health service has neither the expertise or funds to really cater for stroke survivors. Nothing was ever suggested for my arm. Good ol ndis has just bought me a sling. Hard work finding one, as they all looked good but had extra bits that would be too hard to put on one handed. Fancy that...slings for your arm that you can't put on one handed!!! Becky that makes perfect sense. Saying about the arm feeling heavy, sometimes I feel like a gorilla, with this arm dragging itself a

    Since they didn't really know what was wrong with me, but treated me for stroke, physio was the WORST. I was exhausted, not sleeping due to a night owl in the bed across from me, trying to walk properly, grab things with a very non compliant hand...hated every minute. Highlight of my day was when Wayne and the kids came to visit and we went down to the cafe. Also, when you have a baby, dignity becomes a thing of the past! 💚👑

    I'm absolutely sure we have discussed this many times before, but right at this very moment, it's worrying me. I've got a slight cold (no Rona here) and had a few dizzy moments, which always worry me. What is bothering me the most, is tingling sensations all over my head. There's one at the back of my head now. That will go, then I will get one at the front, on my face, across my forehead. Nothing comes of them, but they do worry me. Are they normal? 💚👑

    I'm interested to see if anyone else suffers. The other day, when I scratched my shoulder, it felt very weird. So I started pressing everywhere around my shoulder. I found a big...hole, I guess, between my shoulder bones and arm bones. And a big lump of I don't want to know. Probably muscle. Next morning there was still a gap between the shoulder and arm, but not as bad and no lump. That night, however, it was all back. This went on for a few days when I decided to see the physio. My shoulder has dislocated itself quite a bit,
  7. Mark, here's a motto for you: If I can't glamp, I don't camp. 🤣🤣🤣 💚👑

    Willis soooo many things I would love to claim as my own! I always thought that I had thought up: Don't expect anything then you'll never be disappointed. Found out recently that I wasn't the first to coin that phrase! 💚👑

    I'm changing and growing spiritually as well, Will. I rely heavily on my faith to see me through. 💚👑

    Willis I try to be diplomatic. To do that, a 10 word sentence becomes 20 words, and then I lose my train of thought!! 💚👑

    Thankfully Will, what happened in our early years is in the past!! I never did anything bad, my older brothers had done it all, there was nothing left for me to terrorise my parents with! I also think we are who we are, because of what we've done and not done. We turned out alright, Will. 💚👑
  12. Benni it's a problem not often discussed, unfortunately. Taboo subjects, like depression, incontinence, miscarriage, all need to become normal subjects, to help everyone who suffers. Years ago, when I had post natal depression after the birth of Carrah, a friend said to me she wouldn't tell anyone. I said didn't matter who knew. Stigma is a terrible thing. 👑💚

    That's one good thing, reverse cycle air conditioning!! It has been colder here this year than the last few years. I've taken to wearing my slippers to bible study and soup kitchen! 👑💚
  14. Good on you, Sue. Paying it forward is so very rewarding. 👑💚

    I guess Deigh, knowing if you don't stick to the routine you know it's not going to work. There's always a silver lining. 6am is very early, particularly in winter! 👑💚
