Just Checking In

Hello to all my dear friends and supporters. I'm afraid I haven't been very active for a bit, but I do check in on you. Even though I may not have been posting I keep you all in my prayers. Unfortunately I have hit a "7 month post stroke" depression and I'm trying to work through it. I know you all understand how it feels - not your regular down in the dump blues. Sometimes I can't even explain why. It's just there, 24 hours a day. I also have a great deal of anxiety that I can't seem to control.

It's frustrating because I have always been an incredibly upbeat person, choosing to be in a good mood each day even during life's rough patches. I do hope that this is just another stroke phase! I also have been in constant pain from arthritis and fibromyalgia, plus a frozen shoulder, and I think these constant flare ups are stroke related (common with left-brain strokes).

Please take care of yourselves. Cactus, you're our inspiration and I feel petty complaining when you are facing much larger challenges everyday. Hopefully my sense of humor will make a return soon!

Love you all,

Re: Just Checking In

Good morning sue. Its I . Lol. I am sorry to hear you are struggling so much I am nine months post stroke and still expericing the same pain of legs hands and weakness of my body. I know how upbeat you are and be live me I want to stay upbeat but its only human to have some down days. What to do to keep my sanity. Let's. See. Not live in mass. Or paak the kars. Or spend my vacation at the cape. Here I am in San Diego with. The pacific ocean in my back yard. Going to Disney land for the pm or just watching my grass grow. I guess life isn't that bad and I just just love pain. My dear sue let's all gather in a group and sing life is beautiful . So now its time for me go back to my padded room for. My very best to everyone. Just for you sue. Until later. Cactus al.
