Always Ginny. Giving to others even in the midst of your own needs.
I think I need to take two aspirins each day. I think this caused the stroke. I asked for blood thinners, but they were not given to me. They gave me shots in my stomach, and it was blood thinners. but no prescriptions for blood thinners. Maybe when I get to my rheumy, I may ask him to do that blood test that you told me about Ginny. It really could have been the thick blood.
Trouble concentrating, talking and feel dizzy. that is the symptoms alright. but today is a good day. my verbal ability is healing also. learning to think again. Verbally still I lose my words. but writing seems to have gone well, and a few days after the stroke, i am still mending pretty good. I was so worried that I would not be able to get my skills of writing back, and next I will work on my verbal capacity.
A mini flare today. diarrhea again. I think my body is telling me that I have a bacteria, so the body tries to flush it out with diarrhea, causing a tiny flare. At least it is a day of diarrhea, instead of days of it. Plaquenil is a miracle drug for me.
I need to find more new posts too so that more people can experience what it means to be a part of this forum. This too is a miracle to me.
