BIT THE PROVERBIAL BULLET....

I have just activated a find-me watch.  Living independently without supports has resulted in me needing to engage this technology which can alert emergency services through a monitoring service if I fall or identify and contact the service to assist me.  This is not cheap and just another cost associated with living my life post stroke....initially my dear husband was alive and around, but within 18mths post stroke he lost his battle with cancer which sent my world spinning once again.  All the hard rehab work I had undertaken was voided once I needed to return to earning a full time wage and left minimal time to address all those exercises and activities to keep my stroke affected body on a growth path.  Since then muscle issues associated with the statin drugs I was prescribed and co morbid issues have had significant unhappy impacts which now see me experiencing falls etal - numerous neurological assessments find 'no cause'....at least no further stroke, but are working on other diagnoses including inclusion body myositis, MS and others.......this is NOT where I want to be....NOT somewhere that is positive and certainly NOT somewhere that I share..........just wanting some normality and positivity in all this mire
