Hello all!

Just popping in to say hello and hope that everyone is doing well. My prayers are continuously for WriteLeft...

My spirits are getting better... I've actually started working on creating websites again... its such mental task I was afraid to... but alas... I did it... I'm so excited...

I've been reconnecting with old friends that I thought were lost which is always good... but I'm not into dating just yet... let's face it... its Vegas.. we got Mexicans, Mexicans and more Mexicans... and just for a change of paste, we got ILLEGAL Mexicant's...

I just wanted to drop a quick note, I love and miss you all... Catch me up on what's happening with you all if you can...

Re: Hello all!

Hi Alone,
Thanks for stopping in. I understand your problem. There are so many, but the shallow factor have to be really high there. Maybe you don't need one right now? You have been ok for awhile without one. Maybe try it solo for awhile. You are a free spirit, so that is maybe what you need for awhile. Just my thoughts.
God Bless,
Tim

Re: Hello all!

So glad to see that you are out and about. I know firsthand how hard it is to make the leap back into some of the tasks and jobs that we did pre-stroke. I'll be curious to know if your new websites are different than the old ones, and in what way.

2012 has been off to a bang for me. My husband has had some job woes and I'm picking up the slack. Talk about pressure!

I'm doing my best. Believe it or not, I'm planning to write a best seller this year. Or at least try. Stay tuned.......

Casey

Re: Hello all!

Hello my dear friend
You sound terrific and have been steadily improving and marching forward. Your a great inspiration to us all. Doing the website would have been a real struggle for me but you accomplished it and thats wonderful. Your spirits does sound up beat and healthy.
So far 2012 has brought some down days. Being in the quiet so much really takes strength and a strong mind set to control the emotions. Some days I do great and then other days not so great. I think that the depression is gone but it comes back when I least expect it and its so sad when it does because I feel like I have worked so hard to get where I am. But, I only cry and stay down for so long and then I say Enough is Enough. The depression does scare me though because it takes so much strength and determination to over come it. Its been 19 months since my stroke and Im just a little disappointed at where I am in recovery. I have been going to put a post out there but didnt really want to rant on about negative stuff. But here I am doing it anyway.
Thanks for asking how I am. I guess I really needed to talk.
God Bless Mulchie

Re: Hello all!

Hey guys:

Casey: Its funny I'm more drawn to color now... AND pre-stroke the site was HARDER for me... working with code and numbers... figuring it out... post-stroke... I did the base code for the site in HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!! It just seemed so easy for me now... Go figure... Maybe my brain was more off than I thought... oh well..

Tim!!! I'm steadily doing great... I try not to let the desire for a relationship consume me. I'll survive either way and, given a choice of waiting for a great guy and settling for these unemployed bottom dwellers out here, I'll wait... you know, when you're trying to get your life back to normal, sometimes you're a bit anxious. But as long as God makes batteries, I'll never truly be lonely (blushing).....

Mulllllllllchie! Don't cry *handing tissues* every day of life is another opportunity to "get it right"... right now I'm focusing on diet, exercise and losing weight... big project..

OH OH OHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I couldn't sleep one night so I got up driving and ended up at at local casino by my house (they're everywhere)... I go it... find a machine I like and sit, first spin BONUS! $500... move to a second machine, 3rd spin BONUS! $300... third machine... $100, 50, 70, 60, just back to back to back... I'm about to leave and I got $34 bucks on a ticket so I decide to play it and go... put it in this machine with a cute lion... 1st, second, third spin and the screen filled with lions... I won $2,430!!!!!! alll on penny machines!!! God is great, I paid all my bills off, I prepaid medicine, I prepaid utilities, I sent mom a chunk of money, and I got my car maintenance done, all new tires, and allllllllll the maintenance, even got it washed... bought me a new computer and a 24" monitor!! AND I'M TIRED! lol

God is good!

Re: Hello all!

Hey Nancy...

Sooooooooo sad you're with nausea... and I totally get the spacey feeling....I hope it goes away REALLY soon. My mom was here for the Christmas holiday and it reminded me how much I miss her and how alone I can be sometimes... She cries every time she leaves because she hates to leave me here alone too, but I tell her, "just because I live in this state alone, doesn't mean I AM alone... I have to remember that too...

I'll tell you this much... if I knew then what I know now, I would have made more friends as a child. In my youth, I always wanted to be alone, many people came with much trouble... I don't like drama, I don't have the temper for it... I can be an absolutely bear... but now that fewer years are ahead than behind, I appreciate alllllllll the friends I have....

I'm looking for a new house now, one story with a frickin pool! Will be great for exercising....

Don't know where everybody is, but mi casa en su casa... until I run out of room if you're ever in Vegas!
