You never think it will happen to you! But then it does, and you have to learn to be you all over again.

My physical, emotional and mental health has gone downhill since suffering a stroke in 2002. I need to get back to some basics in order to find myself again, recreate myself, do what I can to build my body, mind, and self confidence stronger.

It's a constant, daily struggle and if it hadn't been for my daughter, I may have given up long ago. She's the one that kept me going day to day; gave me the reason to get as far as I have done. Now that she's a young woman herself, & my other kids are now grown, it's time for me to get Back to Basics for me!
