The Washington Post: Medical Mysteries

Medical Mysteries: Like a slow-motion stroke

This article details my nightmare in the fall of 2013. Please feel free to comment or share it with anyone you know who is disabled or struggling in any way. The reporter and the Health staff did a fabulous job!

And they included the only decent picture of me since the spring of 2013 that includes Jim and me with my sons and their families, all of whom continue to be my motivation to get better!


I carry the latest photo of all of them (minus Jim and me) from January 2015 wherever I go to remind me how much I have to be grateful for!

After seeing the article published, I had an epiphany and decided to start a blog for all of the other folks who have struggled and survived. I hope the story of my struggle will help anyone who is disabled or struggling to keep a positive outlook when things look their bleakest. NEVER, EVER give up!

The best is yet to come.


  1. I am a patient of Dr. Steven Overman, who was quoted in his book. I encourage your efforts and if there is anything I can do to help, please feel free to contact me!

    1. Sharon, you have no idea how much your quote has helped me. Please send me an address or link so I can reach you in a private forum. I review all comments before they are posted, so your information will not be published in any way. Thank you, thank you.
