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!

    ~~}*{~~ emoticon ~~}*{~~MY LIFE~~}*{~~ emoticon ~~}*{~~

    I'll go out there and make my mistakes. I'll fall down,
    get hurt, cry, laugh, love, and get back up.
    I'll stand on the highest mountaintop and go into the deepest caverns.
    I'll roam across the world, visit the moon and swim in outer space.
    I'll let my imagination run wild and let my spirit soar.
    Why?
    Because when my life flashes before my eyes in those final moments,
    I want to have something worthwhile to watch, with plenty of love and laughter,
    good times and bad. I don't want to regret a thing and I plan not to.
    Remember, it's not usually the things you do that you regret,
    it's the things you don't do and leave unsaid. Laugh out loud.
    Cry in the rain. Love with all your heart and soul. Get hurt.
    Tell the truth. Go crazy. But never forget that you only get one shot.
    One shot at this day, one shot at this minute.
    One shot at this age. One shot at life.
    So make sure your life is one you will enjoy watching in your final moments.

    Everyone says love hurts, but that isn't true.
    Loneliness hurts.
    Rejection hurts.
    Losing someone hurts.
    Envy hurts.
    Everyone gets these things confused with love,
    but in reality love is the only thing
    in this world that covers up all the pain
    and makes someone feel wonderful again.
    Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.
