I joined this Forum quite few months after I left hospital. I have found it a good place to be when the whole experience was confusing, frightening and depressing. I’m pretty much through all that but there are still challenges. This can feel to be a very lonely world but there is company, a listening ear, friendship, encouragement and so much more to be had on this Forum. It is an important part of my life now.

I am not alone, together we are finding our way.

Keep on keepin’ on

Hi Bobbi!

You don’t have to answer me if you don’t want to, but I am just curious to know what your main issues are now.

You’ve seemed to come a long way. I am happy for you. I hope more improvement come your way.

Take good care.


Thanks Matthew,
I’ve had a stroke, as you know. I’m pretty much who I was before and after it all. The only difference is that I lost the use of my right side, my dominant side.
I will write more later but I have a date with my wife in front of the television.

If you check out the blog area of the site you’ll find a couple of pieces I wrote that give a little of my background, this week there should be another published there.

Cya later

Keep on keepin’ on
