I’m Back ………………………..Maybe

I’ve been MIA in social media and this blog for nearly 6 months now. Not intentionally.

Cancel – Delete – Purpose

I’ve been busier than ever but I think the real reason I’ve been completely MIA is because I write something and think: “why would anyone care about this”. Then I hit cancel, or delete the post before publishing.

Being extremely busy has led to my writing being completely unfocused (not that I’ve ever really stayed focused on a post except maybe the one on Central Pain Syndrome).

Anyways, after I write something or sometimes in the middle of writing, I decide that I haven’t really said anything useful or worthwhile so I don’t post it.

When it comes down to it though, isn’t the purpose of this blog to understand life after stroke? Isn’t life after stroke a random mess of odd challenges and disorganized thoughts?

Well this post (as well as the majority of my other ones) is definitely random and disorganized.

Maybe I should change the name of this blog to:

Random Ramblings of a Stroke Survivor

Maybe I’d post more often if I didn’t feel as if my posts needed a purpose. Then again, I may not.

Stroke month is almost over and I haven’t participated in any way. I’m a bad, bad blogger……….  However, I do have an infographic that was sent to me to share with you – hopefully I will before Stroke Month is over.

This is not what I anticipated this blog to look like a year after it began. I wonder what it will resemble a year from now. Hopefully it will have some consistent posts.  By the way, if you read my last post before my disappearance – this paragraph is not my idea of living with intention.  

If anyone’s still out there reading my blog – Leave a comment & Say hello below!  You may also want to sign up for email notifications, if you haven’t already, since I obviously have no posting schedule!

    Aren’t you the one who told me even my half-asked entries are worth posting, even if I don’t like them for whatever reason – that someone might find something helpful in it?

    It seems you’ve unintentionally become a member of my family Barb, using my words against me is their specialty……………. I’m not so sure I like this internet stuff anymore – lol. I suppose I’ll have to work on talking to myself as I would a friend in all conversations and not just the easy ones.

    Good to hear from you, Leslie. I’ve missed you. A lot. I agree with Barb, even if you don’think so, your posts are worth posting.

      Thanks Chris! I’ve missed you too. I’m trying to find balance, it’s tough. I’m the kind of person who jumps in with both feet and doesn’t come up for air until I’ve finished what I want to accomplish or a higher priority comes along. I look forward to chatting with you soon.

    Hi, just leaving a comment as you asked. I had a hemorrhagic stroke 3 1/2 years ago and am still trying to recover, so I look for information from/about stroke survivors. Every little bit helps.

      Hi Denise, thanks for commenting! I’ve been on the journey for 3 1/2 years too. How’s your recovery going?
      Have you visited my Stroke Survivor Blogs page? It has links to tons of other useful blogs.
      I look forward to hearing more from you as we continue on our recovery journey!
