Good morning, everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the first day of summer. It’s a beautiful day here in Middletown, NY and felt it appropriate to post a Whenever Quote. The past couple of weeks have been kind to me, with minimal pain levels (except for one exception), and some great happenings.

For those followers who are also friends on Facebook, you probably know that I completed a 5k fun run (walk, in my case). I came in dead last but I finished! I worked out at the Middletown YMCA for almost two months in preparation for the event. Prior to working at the Y, my endurance wasn’t great at all, so I made sure to build up my Stroke Survivor Superpowers. I didn’t need my cane until the last mile. 🙂

I felt this quote by William Barclay said it all.

I’ll be posting a video that my Ride or Die girl Vivian taped during the last four minutes or so of the event on my Facebook Page, which is public, so if you’d like to check it out later and like it, that’d be awesome.

Hugs to all of you.



Good morning, all. A while back I started posting weekly quotes to help encourage myself to keep blogging regularly. Of course, stuff always happens and I get derailed. I’ve decided to change it to Whenever Quotes. 🙂 It makes more sense than trying to force myself to do this.

Here is today’s Whenever Quote:

Quote provided by www.brainyquote.com

So true.

I’ve had ups and downs over the past couple of months, so I’ve kept to myself more than I’d like.

On the upside, I’ve finished Physical Therapy for now and the family and I now go to the local YMCA for workouts. Vivi has been instrumental in helping me build more confidence in myself and my abilities.

We’re registering for a 5k walk in a couple of weeks and I’ve been working hard on the treadmill.

On the downside, I’m still having issues with depression, still sleeping more than I should. I’m almost done being weaned off a second medication, Paroxetine, but still haven’t noticed any significant changes.

All that being said, like the quote says, I’m determined to succeed and move forward, even if I fail a few times.

Enjoy the week, everyone! Xoxoxo







This is what I’m working on! Have a blessed day, everyone!




Good morning, all. It’s Wednesday and time for another weekly quote. With the new diagnosis of Syringomyelia from my neurologist, I’ve been focusing extra hard on staying strong and positive, because I’m hard-headed like that. I’ve gotten through worse and I’ll get through this.









For whoever else is struggling, this is for you, too! Xoxoxo




Good morning, all. It’s Wednesday and time for another weekly quote. This week has been good to me since I was able to get a lot of things done.
