It’s a new thing becoming handicapped.

It’s a new thing becoming handicapped.

For my handicapped readers, I thought I would tell you a bit about me. I found handicapped in 2005. I suffered a stroke. One day I was fine, and the next day I was handicapped. It took me many months to move on from feeling desperately worthless to become anything that I was going to make something of this new life. I thought that the results of this stroke would be over soon. I know, I know, you must think I’m crazy!

It’s now 2011…[6 years later]… yeah here I am writing.

I wanted to tell you what has helped me. First and foremost God himself. My daughter encourages me so much. Her children too have accepted me just the way I am. I live in a convelsent home because I can’t walk and need constant care. The staff here has become my second family. I see my daughter at least once a week.

I am making progress in my life. I am thankful for what I have. Please don’t give up.
