Stroke: not a good week - NOT amateur radio

Some days are like this. This week has been a bad week and I have felt particularly giddy and very tired. Hopefully next week will be better.

Unlike "pre-stroke" days, things exhaust me far more and I seem to stress more easily.  Despite this, we have still managed to get out and about. Maybe I am pushing myself too hard and my body is screaming "slow down"? Oh, how I wish I was well again.

For most of the last 2 years I have been living a hell interspersed with better days. I have felt giddy now for more than 2 years. Will it never get better?

When I am seated or resting, I'm fine.  The main issues are when I am on my feet, walking and active.

So sorry to hear this. Didn't have a clue until just now. You were a Ham I follow on Twitter.You and I both know since you have given me a problem to solve so I shall regard you as a rig in need of repair! Keep to whatever your doctor says, but do keep up with the exercise. If you don't walk every day start. Become an expert on nutrition and supplements and such. Your body (my body, every body) is like a needy old tube transmitter!

Come on Mr Lapthorn, the sun is out shining and a FT-991 could be right around the corner to cheer you up! :-)

Maybe you should eat a good plate of those sprouts, Mrs L got you from market to build up your strength?

Thanks for the good wishes.

Steve, you will be pleased to hear we still have a few of those sprouts left. They were a good buy. Good job I like sprouts.

Yes Forrest, I could do with a few new bits!
