Extremely eHealthy
Now this is wierd. I realize that this topic is probably in the wrong place but, I could not help but answer.
I am a 60 year old young lady that had a brain hemorage back in 03 and doing fine with that now. Since, I have had multiple illness which I won't go into. I also am in the appeal stage of SSDI. I was in the heath care field for 23 years and was a mental health tech for about 4-5 years. Both with teens and substance abuse. I am a freelace nature photographer and love it.
Unfortunatly I am a single lady and very happy. I love to cook, just don't have the need to really anymore with just my son and I.

So, your not alone matt and I wish you the best of luck on your SSDI.

I initially had no use of my right side but with alot of pt and ot I have use of my right hand and arm with weekness in my shoulder. My leg has not made such good progress. I walk with a cane and I wear an AFO (brace). Does anyone know of anyone who has made significant improvement at this stage of the game.
