A Stroke of great proportions....

Dear readers , This blog has been late in getting updated because in last fall I had a life changing encounter with Cerebral infractions, four of the , to be exact. Not only did this come with the worst headache of my life and lasted six wks, I lost use of right arm, right hand and left leg. Now I am in occupational therapy, I squeeze a sponge and play with silicone clay And do HARD exercises!! I lost my spinning ability , both w dop spindle and wheel. I can not yet crochet, but after five depressing months, I finally got to knit a tiny bit of yo, k 2 tog lace!!! yippee. I am even more handicapped overall than I was prior... But when I knitted that bit of lace on huge needles, I was so happy !!! A bit of advice to you my friend. Learn to relax, don ' t be uptight like I was . I had been on BP pills for 30 years, but in trying to cut back on the many drugs I must take, last May I decided to stop taking them, it was ok with my doctor. However I never thought of daily stress . It just kept piling on me until I was stricken. Now, besides my other numerous issues I have this additional headache that rises when I get stressed. This week I got even more really bad news, a death, another almost died, and I was given terrible news about my lungs. However it is proven that creativity helps manage or stop pain. I made a card and though it was not as "good as I used to do it.". It is still home made. Let us be happy for this is our life, no one knows how long they have, and LOVE those near you.Bless you, grace watch some of the creative videos I collected, relax.
