Still here. Just…

20 10 2018

I cant even remember the last time I posted, and it’s a gross understatement to say lots.

A few bullet points to give you an idea

  • Got my green card
  • Found employment for the first time in 7 years
  • Got divorced
  • Moved house twice
  • Changed jobs
  • Got promoted
  • Moved house
  • Had a stroke and brain hemorrhage
  • Spent a year combined in hospital and a nursing home
  • Returned to live with family in Australia
  • Been doing over two years of rehab in an effort to learn to walk again
  • Moved into a live-in rehabilitation facility attached to a hospital in an effort to hopefully speed up my recovery
  • Learnt very quickly to despise cooking something I used to enjoy as it’s so much harder now that I’m mobility challenged.
  • For a little over two years I’ve been unable to work, drive, use my left arm as it’s now paralyzed.
  • Not fun. But I’m not dead. I may elaborate more in the future but this will have to suffice for my first post in such a long time.
  • Post stroke I tire easily and find it difficult to concentrate.
  • But hi to you all.
  • From being told I’d never walk again and being quadriplegic. I can now travel short distances using a single point cane, so things could definitely be worse.
  • I’m home from rehab for the weekend and go back tomorrow.
  • I’m going to make a concerted effort to post more often but with only one working hand now it’s a daunting task right now. But I do miss it
