    Will and Heather... So true. I am better these days than I used to be (PBA/CRYING/UNSTOPPABLE). I still have ongoing PBA and it rears its ugly head every so often maybe more often than I'd hoped. I have been in the thick of it on numerous occasions. Wailing, defeated, angry, tired, confused, terrified, sad, alone-alone-alone! Yes it is so true... Sometimes you just have to let it all out!

    Wow Janelle I sure hope you get a bit more support coming your way. That has to be so hard and if it were me I'd freak a little. I am lucky that I don't have this issue. I'm with Heather, I would hope that there is some sort of training for you guys. I'll have to pose this question at next month's stroke support group.

    Janelle I definitely agree with everyone. I can't say that I have had similar pain but I do get headaches a lot mostly in the back of my head. Mine is definite neuro fatigue and happens quite often if I am stressed, it's raining or something raises my anxiety. I'm sure having a cold would do just that for me at least. Let us know how things go. Huggs!

    OK this is a little TMI but I thought I would share since I missed inpatient rehab all together. (They missed my diagnosis) I was at home and my daughter had been helping me. At this point, I was barely getting around and I had severe vertigo. I also did not have much control over certain things (incontinent...I would go as soon as I saw the toilet and I had not even made it to the bathroom yet. I slept for probably about 18 hours per day. One evening I woke up and my tummy was rolling! I got up and Hailey ran around to help me...as i wobbled slowly to bathroom I began to cry...I knew this was
  7. I want to start by saying I need and I miss my friends and support here at Strokenet. It's been somewhat of a tough year for me I suppose emotionally, mentally and physically. I know I'm not alone when I say "I'm so tired". Man, am I so tired! I'm not even sure what was going on in my life when I was more active in the forums and in my blogs... I'll have to go back and pay attention to when it started to fade to catch up on where I am now (well what's been happening since then). No one knows that I have started tons of blogs and it ended up floating into the blog beyond lol. Tryin

    Again, at least we are in good company! Not that I want anyone to have any crazy in them... I do feel less alone. 🙂

    Will I am glad to be in good company! Your post reminds me of my Bella (my other kitty) who really enjoys to to touch my feet when i am in my recliner with her cold nose ever so gently...pretty much any time she comes near (It absolutely drives me insane!) LOL
  13. Yes it is!! Thankfully, I did get settled down and slept for a bit. I had my therapy today (good timing) and then my PT this afternoon. My anxiety is much calmer now and I hope my brain wants to sleep early tonight (crossing my fingers).

    So true Heather. I am happy that my daughter and I can come with a comical little skit just for our enjoyment (never want to take away the seriousness but you are right we have to laugh at times it is great medicine). I understand about the vaccine stuff. I think it is a little less of an issue here since we above the equater will get flu vacs usually Sept and Oct so still some time for more covid vacs. There is still the issue of some that just refuse to get it (I think they probably stear clear of the flu one too). I'm just going to do my part and hope my little bit helps the world to reach
