Learning to able to be free again once in my life. On Feb3,2009 I had a stroke that effected my right side. It has been a year so far and there has been some improvement. But not enough yet. Finding the weight issue is hard enough. But dealing with a stroke has been really difficulty. You don't realize that any little thing can changes your lift so quickly. I was a care taker for the last 2 years, my best girlfriend got cancer, and after fighting this battled she passed away in March. It has been a year on the 19th. So I've had to learn not to take to much for granted. Having the stroke was my calling that I had to take care of myself for a change. Losing my friend was hard enough because she didn't have any family only me to depend on. I believe that you have to take each day as it comes and live it to the fullest because you only have today and this moment.
