Sometimes we need to take a break from social media and to enjoy the moment... 💖🌟So for 5 days I was relaxing and enjoying family time. Make yourself a priority once in a while.💖🌟 Take some 'ME' time! (Honestly this is new for me)... Before I had my Stroke, I was always trying to what's best for everyone else, no matter how bad my personal circumstances were. It didn't matter how I was feeling .💖🌟Im trying this new thing, a bit of 'ME' time and that I did! I was inspired this weekend by one of Great Britain's Heroe's, Winston Churchill! Inparticular this quote stuck in my head- .💖🌟Never give in - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense! I think we can all relate to this in someway! In all aspects of my recovery and going forward! Im back...💖🌟#imamblessed  #thankyou #youngstrokesurvivor #strokesurvivor #iamme  #strokesurvivorsneverquit #strokerecovery #strokesupport #stroke  #believeyoucan #sparkleeverywhere  #positivity #inspire #icanandiwill #comeonrightleg  #comeonrightarm  #bitbybit  #justkeepgoing #celebrateeverylittlevictory #strokeassociation #sameyoucharity #dance  #dancer #tryingsomethingnewtoday #confidence #gettingfit #strokerehab #stroke #aphasia #bodyconfidence  #ourbodiesareamazing (These are Ems words written by Roger)
It’s been a very rough week of brain fog, anxiety, mood swings and insomnia. In acupuncture today we talked about how it’s exactly one week away from a year. She told me how the body remembers and to practice showing myself extra compassion this week. I cried my whole session.⁣ ⁣⁣
I really thought celebrating a year would be an exciting milestone. Instead it’s bringing up stored trauma and my body is freaking out. I can’t sleep, my appetite is low, my brain fog is so heavy my sight is weird, my tears are ever flowing, my anxiety is through the roof and I just haven’t felt myself. The day I almost died is creeping up and rather than be proud of how far I’ve come, we’ve been hiding inside, cancelling plans, rearranging our apartment in hopes it’ll give us new energy and just sitting in silence.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s hard. And I don’t quite have the words to explain all these emotions. We made it! Is mixed with wait what the hell happened and what year is it and why am I not better yet? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But I’m still here. Continually putting one foot in front of the other until I don’t think twice about it. Taking a new huge daily dose of Chinese herbs, loading up on proteins, changing the room I almost died in into my healing reiki/meditation/soul searching room. Somehow someway we made it to this point. And somehow someway we’ll make it to the next.

To start of another fun day on the lake.
I have come a long way. 4 year anniversary today. Lots of hard work and support these past few years. I am extremely lucky to be here and to have come as far as I have. It could always be worse! I just hope to keep getting better

: We often think that admitting struggle is a sign of weakness, but we all struggle sometimes. We all get overwhelmed sometimes. We all need help sometimes. Acknowledging this is not a sign of weakness, but struggling alone is a choice to grow weak. *
 We all need each other. The good news is that people really do care. Think about it, if someone you know was  hurting, would you offer your support? If someone you know got into a tough situation, would you help them find a solution? You’d probably want them to come to you to know that you care and they can trust and depend on you. *
 I have a huge amount of support and I am truly grateful to all. I've thought that i either give up and accept this is me and all the things i can't do or i keep fighting so i can do them. Who said life was easy it's about trying to make the most of what I have. God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith but it's worth the wait. ・・・

So this week my coach leant me his Capita board, it's a super aggressive board that you need to work a bit harder to get the edge biting in but once you get the edge in, it stays. It's like being on a rail track. So quite the opposite from last week. More training on using things we have learnt and having to really concentrate and work on them to get the results I need.it was also fast! #strokesurvivor #braininjury #parasnowboard #dsuk #snowfactor #roadtobeijing #teamtimmy #icaniwill #spreadshirt #hemiplegia #hemiparesis
So what I will be doing from here on out starting September 1st is Educating myself of awareness of that month and selling shirts the color of the awareness month half my proceeds will go towards a organization that supports finding a cure for such illnesses so this is my next step towards being a model for the people to follow and appreciate so I’m just asking the community to support #strokesurvivor

Yesterday’s doctors appointment went ok.  Our pediatrician is shocked with how different he is now and said she doesn’t think our NICU team would recognize us anymore, she is very proud of him.  She is concerned about a few areas of development but none of those are new areas, he is speech delayed, he does have sensory issues, he’s not walking etc.  She said she’s thinking he’s going to need a walker as a safety net to get him walking.  She said his self harm is pretty common with speaking delayed kids and that he will likely grow out of it, and she’s not keen on helmets so just keep tossing that pillow under his head or redirect if we can.  I’m a bit miffed at our neurosurgeons office, apparently after his scan I was supposed to book an appointment, but no one ever told me that and when I asked about it last time they just gave us the results and said next follow up would be in October.  So I called and hopefully someone gets back to me tomorrow and we can get in soon.  There is a revised medical report that mentions numerous enhancements in his brain, but they seem pretty unsure exactly what they are, so more imaging likely.  But Dom is an outwardly healthy 26lb chunk of love.

A Singaporean rock climber Chua Chee Beng was told he would be wheelchair-bound for life after becoming partially paralysed from a fall... He promised himself he would leave the hospital by foot within two months. With the help of a physiotherapist, Chua trained to use his legs again. Chua trained himself to walk at least 4km using crutches on alternate days. #grit #nevergiveup #focus_therapy_rest_repeat #strokerehab #youngstrokesurvivor #strokeaid #useitorloseit #keeptrying #persistence #celebrate  #smallvictories  #neuroplasticity #plasticity #strokesurvivor #strokesurvivors #strokerecovery #occupationaltherapy #occupationaltherapist

Pia hat ein Bild für meine Tür gemalt, damit ich nicht wieder zu früh abbiege und versuche, in fremde Zimmer zu kommen🤣. Das ist sie im Bonbonregen bei einem Gartenfest 🤷🏻‍♀️#stroke #strokesurvivor #strokerehab  Sonst ein ruhiger Tag ohne Therapien im #Panzentrum  dafür mit freieilligem Training im Stehtisch und am Handlauf und liebem Besuch von Prof. Thomas 😊
Honeslty never thought we'd be able to do this again and I'll be honest I was a bit reluctant when we got here as I just didn't believe it could work but we have spent the afternoon on the beach! Kids have absolutely loved it and so have we. He walked all the way down to see the sea and back again, got stuck in the sand at one point in the wheelchair but seeing them all happy and being kids has been ace! 
Our road trip has been ace and just what we all needed...now bring on our holiday next week!

Je veľká pravda, že mať dcéru a mať syna je veľmi odlišné. Milujem obe svoje deti nekonečnou láskou, ale pozorovať tie rozdiely, akí sú iní už od mala, je úžasné. A vzťah matka-syn a matka-dcéra je každý iný. Krásny, ale iný. Ďakujem, že mi bolo dopriate zažiť oboje ❤️👩‍👧‍👦🙌🏻

Coming up on the 1 year anniversary of the day that forever changed my life. Recovery from stroke takes commitment, persistence, determination. You begin by doing what is necessary, sometimes only what is necessary for basic survival. Gradually you move on to what is possible,  remembering each day that which is possible changes. Eventually you are able to do what was once impossible. I still struggle at times and occasionally I return to a day of doing only what is necessary. But that rest leads back to victory,  to overcoming, to life.

Najkrajší zvuk (hneď po plači mojej Larinky 😂🙈) je zvuk tečúcej vody v potoku 😍😍😍 Milujem to!
