I had a stroke in February '14, and after being hospitalized for 4 months, and doing intensive rehab...for everything...physical, speech and occupational...I am very, very lucky...the after effects were not too bad.... I walk, speak and move normally...but I really got horrible damage with my brain.... and it affected my short-term memory...As for work I have been told I won't be able to return to my previous work which was in Finances because of the damages....So I am currently on Social Security disability....
I just gotten back to driving October 2015... I passed my driving assessment and now I can drive! Whoa... so wonderful to be able to drive again! I joined a gym and I'm going to the gym every day! I love fitness classes and they offer a variety at my gym... I go to both morning and evening classes to keep busy and to stay healthy.

    I made myself a snowball emoticon
    As perfect as could be. emoticon
    I thought I'd keep it as a pet, emoticon
    and let it sleep with me. emoticon
    I made it some pajamas, emoticon
    And a pillow for its head. emoticon
    Then last night it ran away, emoticon
    But first,...it wet the bed. emoticon

    This made me smile....hope it made you smile too!!

    Have you any old grudges you would like to pay,
    Any wrongs laid up from a bygone day?
    Gather them now and lay them away
    Before Christmas comes.
    Hard thoughts are heavy to carry, my friend,
    And life is short from beginning to end;
    Be kind to yourself, leave nothing to mend
    When Christmas comes.

    Hey you. Yes you.
    Stop being unhappy with yourself.
    Stop wishing you looked like someone else or wishing people
    liked you as much as they like someone else.
    Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you.
    Stop hating your body, your face, your personality, your quirks. Love them.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Without those things, you wouldn't be you & why would you want to be anyone else?
    Be confident with who you are, smile, it'll draw people in.
    If anyone hates you because you are happy with yourself,
    tell yourself my happiness will not depend on others anymore.
    I'm happy because I love who I am, I love my flaws,
    I love my imperfections, they make me, me. & 'me' is pretty amazing!!

    Remember, love yourself for who you are, not how others want you to be
