My day with my doctor

Question:  I had a stroke in 2006 and my stroke left me crying all the time.  Whenever I have to speak to anyone I cry, even my son, I cry.  I don’t know why I cry I just cry.  So my delimma is I need a sticker for disabled/handicapped people for my car.  I took the paper I got from the DMV to my doctor and she would sign it because it only had 5 reasons and I didn’t fall the 5 reasons.  I told her that when I need to stop after a few minutes of walking and she said that was okay everybody get a little tired.  I said that I don’t remember things some times and she said that was okay because people don’t always remember things sometime.  I said that I cry when I’m in the car just for no reason.  She said that I should stop the car until I’m finish crying.  I need to go the DMV, Department of Motor Vehicles, and talk to someone about the 5 things that I don’t have and tell them what I have to see if they can change anything.  My doctor says that I’m not being treated for any of the 5 things they mentioned so therefore she can’t sign it.  What can I do to get my sticker from DMV.  There is not many people here in South Carolina that crys all time, if any.

My weekend trip

I went away for a weekend trip to a lake in South Carolina. I went with my sisters from Bible Study. It was great. We stayed at one of their lake houses. Everybody cooked something but I didn’t have to cook. We got there on a Friday and left on Sunday afternoon. I had went there and I had to take a needle in my stomach every night and one of the girls gave it to me. I thank her for doing that. But it was joyous and very religious. We read and answered questions about the bible but I cried. They let me cry and went on with what ever we were studing. It was a great weekend trip.

Stroke victims are disabled too!

Hello to all, I would like to tell a story on an issue that most people don’t want to consider as being an illness. A few years ago, my aunt Gwen had a stroke and like most people with not much knowledge as to what that truly mean. I felt sad for her, but went on with my daily activities as if she would recover easily from a cold. It wasn’t until a friend invited me down to North Carolina for a visit that I had the chance to drive to her house in South Carolina to see her. It still didn’t hit me that her condition was far more worse that I thought, until I decided to stay with her for a few weeks. As I watched her move along her house trying to live a normal everyday life. I noticed how much this stroke has taken a serious hold of her. Her balance is off when she walks, she can’t remember much of anything from the past, her speech is slurred and so she cry while trying to explain a topic or just from a simple question asked. Suddenly, my sadness became fear. I was struck with a harsh reality that her life would never be the same. She doesn’t talk, walk or think the way she use too and I am stared for her. I watched a strong, funny and well rounded woman, change to a woman who has no control over her emotions, as well as her mobile skills. I know that some people really don’t take stroke victims as being disabled. They believe that just as long as they could speak, walk and make sense of some things, then they are not considered to be disabled. I say this, because I talked to my aunt Gwen about finding certain services that can come in her home to help out. Her responds was “I wouldn’t be qualified for that.” It is a shame how our agencies do not take a strong look at victims of a stroke. Well to all of you out there who truly believes that, I am here to say that you can not possibly know until you are physically around a stroke victim. This is a true illness and as soon as we all take a true look at it, then we can learn how to treat it as a disability. I hope this small blog help bring awareness! God Bless!
