Never ever give up HOPE!

I feel, no matter how dire a situation, hope is the key, as well as viewing our difficulties as challenges to be overcome along life’s journey, as well as offering opportunities to grow.

Finding My Words Again…

My Stroke-athon Journey

IMG_5401

I was lying in bed after the neuropsychology test. My head was thumping and I couldn’t think. I was back on the drip again with pain killers and other medication. I then fell asleep for a while. I was woken up for dinner. My head was still hurting that bad. I guess maybe the weakness on the right side of the body was insignificant to me and I didn’t realise that it was weak. I wasn’t aware that my mum and the nurses were putting pillows on the right hand side of me to support me to stay upright and stop me from falling on that side. I still didn’t know my name and couldn’t say my name when I was asked to repeat it. I still didn’t know where I was. I couldn’t remember my past and it was like my memory was wiped all out and I was…

Some personal thoughts…

We mustn’t have a victim attitude. No matter what has happened to us, there are always new beginnings and new opportunities. Each one of us has positive attributes and we must not let our difficulties define us. They are merely challenges to overcome and you can develop strategies to compensate for these deficits. No matter how significant the injury, never think you are disabled… because disability is a state of mind.
