The literature about strokes, both in print and online formats, is undoubtedly exhaustive and exhausting. That is especially pertinent, because until today, just about everything has been exhausting to me.
Today for the first time since I returned home after my April 22 stroke I made it through a whole day at home without dissolving into an afternoon nap of two hours or more. PROGRESS! And it wasn’t all at home. Husband Walter and I engaged in community integrative therapy (That is an actual term that I heard a therapist use) today which included a visit to Coffee Fusion for tea, coffee, and a little visiting in person and online; shopping at Wal-Mart, Lowes and Sears. The last two I read a book in our van while hubby zipped in to finalize his price-checking and purchase of a new lawnmower.
All that means I am getting stronger. I will periodically be posting such enlightening tidbits about my stroke journey, when I am not engaged in enthusiastic napping, that is. No research; just my impressions.
