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.

    Life is like having a cup of coffee
    You sit by the window, lift the cup, you take a sip...
    only to realize you forgot to add sugar..
    Too lazy to go for it,
    you somehow struggle to finish the bitter drink.
    Afterwards you discover undissolved sugar at the bottom.
    That's how life is....we are sometimes lazy and blinded
    to value what is around us, and live in bitterness...
    Look around......maybe the sweetness of life
    you are looking for is closer than you think.

    Often people attempt to live their lives backwards;
    they try to have more things, or more money,
    in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier.
    The way it actually works is the reverse.
    You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do,
    in order to have what you want.
