Yes, a lot of recovery is in the power of the persons mind.

INT21

p.s. My TIA was 13 years ago. no further problems. My cholesterol was brought down from 7 to 3.8.
Good to know and I'm wet behind the ears about this stuff despite being used to be a carer for stroke patients .. my personality has altered a little bit, mostly anger increased, sex drive increased and the ability to write easily decreased .. Stu has promised to look out for that on my request ..

Has you got back full use of hand etc ?

My only real worry after it was the fear it may happen again. Apparently it rarely does.

I did lose my ability to remember guitar chord sequences; but remember the chord fingering. And also my maths isn't as good as it was.

But I'm almost 76 year old, so that's possibly old age.

I do miss big greasy beefburgers though.

You'll be fine once the initial trauma of it wears off.

Keep well Swifty. Just rest and take it easy for a bit.

Sex drive increased. Sounds great, but be cautious.

Multitasking.

I was:

a) Eating a ham and Edam sandwich with pickle, while;

b) Watching Zombeavers, from which l broke off temporarily to;

c) Rescue, hydrate and release a trapped bumblebee from our conservatory.

Yeah, about bees.

People claim they are clever, being able to find their way home and direct others to pollen etc. But really they are a bit dim.
I'm forever having to rescue them from the greenhouse.
They fly in then, although there may be three open roof windows, an open slatted vent and the door, they can't find their way back out.
They will walk or buzz their way across the top of the door frame but not have the brains to go through the door.
Like you, I have to rescue them before they lose all strength and finish up on the floor. Them they need a sip or two of sugar water to revive.

Forget about all that for now. Do something cosy and innocuous. Keep blood pressure down.

I think you've done more than enough, don't you? You've earned a rest, plus if you stay healthy from now on you won't be testing the NHS's resources.

Take care, Swifty. Give yourself time to heal.

I've had some troubles (who hasn't at the moment) but I've been given the chance to have a rest mate X .. more honestly I'm being forced to have a rest. I'm still smiling though. Escargot's been ace :badge:

Wishing you the best from both me and Tigerhawk. May I suggest you binge view as much anime as you can while you rest up?

No porn then?
Not until you've eaten all your vegetables, clean your room and generally feel better! You're not to exert yourself!:bhave:

Going to start a really boring jigsaw about spice biscuits - just have wait for it to cool down first.

That looks charming

Do they tessilate?

Possibly if I had used plain flour instead of self-raising - was hoping for better, given the cost of the cutters.

Cutting out face mask linings. Like watching paint dry.
