A stroke victim I know is very religious. She has problems speaking and using her hand. But she says her stroke doesn’t matter. What matters is her relationship with God.

I can’t say my stroke doesn’t matter.

Can you?

Hey therapists, be encouraging to your patients. Most of my therapists have been. Some have not. I left.

Got a story to tell?

Boston goes nuts for St. Patrick’s Day. Lots of people become Irish once a year, drink a lot and vomit. I know this because I live in a bar area. My authentic Boston-Irish boyfriend hides indoors for St. Patrick’s Day.

As a celebration for driving again, my parents sent me a gift certificate to a fine Boston oyster establishment. Perhaps I will drive there.

I passed my driving test today – again. I had not driven because of my stroke for awhile. Now I can drive again. Clear the roads!

My evaluator was a man known as Big Peter. He was very large. Apparently, in his spare time he is a preacher. After he passed me, I told him that it was his good deed of the day.
