Time For Some Stroke History-I Think I’m Ready

Hello blogger friends. I mentioned when I first started this blog that I had begun using my writing blog as a place to start talking about my hemorrhage and stroke recovery. It had turned into a series of sorts, that I didn’t get a chance to finish because life kept happening. Rather than start from scratch, I’m going to re-blog those posts onto this blog over the next several weeks, and then continue from where I left off. At some point, it will sync into the present, and I’ll just keep going from there.

I’m still going through a stack of research and organizing a bunch of notes I’ve pulled together in an effort to make this a somewhat comprehensive blog when it’s done. She’s got a long way to go, but given a little time, I hope you’ll all be proud of my efforts. 🙂

The post that I’ll be re-blogging today is the ‘prequel’ post entitled, “I Think I’m Ready”. I’ll be re-blogging the others in 2-3 day increments, until I get them transferred over. For those of you following both blogs, I apologize for the brief period where you’ll see a duplication of some posts from last year, but I promise, it’ll be over soon!

I’ve talked about it in pretty clinical terms with everyone. Now is as good a time as any to just get it all out there. A very wise Aloha man told me once that when I was ready, I would be able to share. I’m going to do my best; although this is going to take several blog posts. I’m thinking at least four.

About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

    I’m glad I get to read your story. I gives me more perspective. I love knowing I’m not alone in what I feel and what the one in pain feels!

      Thanks LadyJai! I’ll be transferring the posts over the next couple of weeks, so you should have a good sense by then. In the meantime, we’ll continue to communicate offline. From now one, neither one of us will ever be alone, and that makes me feel so good! Have a great weekend! Eva
