in my opinion my stroke stroke survivors

I’m in shock! Fifth stroke rebirthsday and traditional list of changes for better

Kasia - na Cyprze. selfieAmazing. 5 years ago today I had a brain stroke. So now I am 85- year old woman (i have many needs of pensioner), 30 yo. woman (in my ID), 5 yo (counting from my rebirthday), and 14 – because of my silly attitude to the world. And I’m alive.

If you happen to be my follower, you know that each year on the 21st of December I publish a list of things that changed in my life for better. If I don’t see them, I force myself to find some. 

After 5 years I know, that life after stroke consists of both violets and shit, and it is worth finding violets. Diseases are overwhelming and bring mostly sorrow and pain. This time of the year I am ready to acknowledge that I’m alive. that’s pretty cool;)

Today is no exception. I’ve just returned from holiday, sat in front of a computer and I’m thinking about last year. Except for the bad beginning (the illness of grandpa), this year was not that bad. It was mostly about laughing. The year before had been really bad, so my list was very poor. Now it’s easier. A lot easier. then, ladies and gentlemen, 

What changed for better after my stroke?
