Stroke update - NOT amateur radio

Not a lot of change really.

My biggest issues are not being able to speak easily, drinking liquids and feeling so profoundly tired so often, even though I sleep well. The fact that I feel wobbly when on my feet I have learned to live with. The tiredness is debilitating.  I feel as if I have drunk 8 pints of beer most of my waking life. I can assure you it is no fun. Sitting down is OK. No-one, and I do mean no-one,  seems to understand what a struggle it is. The comment I get is, "you do look well". If only they understood just how difficult life really is on the inside.

Although it may not seem it to you, regular readers of your blog will have noticed a continuing improvement since your discharge from hospital. Your blog entries are ever more frequent and you have obviously not lost the ability to think. I have sympathy for your physical problems, but your mental capacity seems largely intact which is to be grateful for. Can you still do CW OK? that would seem to be a way around the speech problems? Best wishes, Hugh G6AIG
