Hello everyone, I havent been on in a while. I hate to report that I had a stroke. was in the hospital for a little over a week, then to rehab. for a week. I am home! Thank God. Home health comes out twice a week which includes physical therapy, speech therapy and RN. This is rough. Two yrs this coming Sept. I suffered a heart attack, The stroke is much worse! I constantly wonder what is next. I really do not think I can handle much more. This is really scarey. This has caused the RA pain to be much worse than before. I am so tired all the time now. By 6:00 pm I am totally exhausted. Has any one else had to go thru a stroke? Plus the steroids from the sinus infection and bronchitis has made me hugh! I am 5'1, my weight is now at 160 lbs. I saw a lady today that I have not seen in a few yrs and she told me that I had put on a lot of weight. That didnot help my feelings one little bit! I am on blood thinner meds, and 3 blood pressure meds so my skin is paper thin and I bleed from any kind of scratch. People (strangers) ask me what has happened to my skin. People are rude at times. Suffering from RA is tough, then all this other stuff on top of that is making me depressed. Any advise of any kind would be greatly appreciated. I just want to be me again. at 53 yrs of age it just does not seem fair. Sorry to go on, but I just had to get some of this off my chest! Thanks for listening! love to all and very gentle hugs. God Bless. Linda
