I'm not paralyzed. I saw my nurse practitioner on Thursday, and she said that I was lucky. It could have done major damage to my body, and mind.

I'm still processing this. I don't understand why I had a stroke. I'm on two new medicines, and am going to see a stroke doctor probably every three months on top of seeing a kidney doctor every three months, on top of seeing mental health councillors, and case managers.

I'm going to get my eyes checked next week because the ambulance personnel lost my glasses in the ambulance.

My brother in law is moving me out of the house that I've lived in for a while on September the 1st because he has sold the house, and plans on retiring soon. I don't know where I'm going to live yet. It's hard to find a place to live these days.

I have car problems and other problems on top of other problems. I hope that I don't get anymore problems. BF

Hi, Friend,
That's a shame about your glasses.

Is there someone from the state helping you find a place to live?

you really were lucky about your stroke! That is so great. They will find you a home that is probably closer to civilization. I am glad for you that you will be away from your brother- in- law. I think he gives you negative vibrations. I only had one follow up after my stroke and operation. I wonder what they will be monitoring. I wonder if there is some agency that would provide you with a better car! You are doing great!

You were really unlucky, but lucky regarding the stroke. I'm sorry about all of your mounting problems, BF (((HUGS)))

I wish you knew where you are going to live. I think that would really alleviate your anxiety

Hi Mary. I have case managers with my local mental health organization and a case manager with social services looking for a place for me to live. It's down to two months now.

It's really strange having all of these problems intersect at the same time. BF

I have many things all boxed up. The things that I need now are not. My nieces said that they will help with the moving. Unfortunately, I will not be able to take my cat along with me I've heard. This makes me sad. BF
