I cannot get to a computer every day reliably, and typing is a major pain,you try typing flat on your back looking across the top of a keyboard.I have come to accept I will be like this for several years baring a miracale.It is a struggle not dropping into despair. I am getting better mentally(better = more aware). I read all the time(which helps).Talk about instant Karma I Let a friend who was staring at homelessness in the face move in(She is also trans.I also adopted her as my sister (this was two weeks before my stroke. Since then she has been my caretaker She makes sure I eat well Even if I'd rather not.Another friend has stepped forward and helps me into a wheel chair most days so I can get some exercise I can grab the kitchen sink with my good arm and stand at the sink for several minutes with help.If my bad leg ever comes back I will have some balance left. I am blessed in a real sense. If I can keep my sanity I'll. get through this. I am by by nature optimistic.
