We celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary recently. Including our dating years, we’ve been together for 15 years.
Over the past two years, we’ve had to adapt to numerous changes. Life has shaken us up and twisted us all around. To be honest, there have been times when I didn’t think we were going to cross all the barriers.
I’ve attended three rehabs and worked with numerous therapists. Over the course of my recovery, mistakes were made by medical professionals. Of course, I would have a rare symptom of a stroke (audiological processing and minor loss of hearing).
Financially, we’ve had to face numerous obstacles including living life on disability. No longer are we going to start a family. On top of this transition, multiple fraudulent charges were made in my name by two girls in Clayton County in Georgia. Luckily, I checked my credit today and most of the fraudulent charges have been cleared. One of the thieves is still pleading “not guilty”.
Justice still hasn’t been served. I can’t describe the horror of clearing off fraudulent charges on your credit. Probably the easiest company to deal with has been Capital One or Chase. Macy’s and Kohl’s gave me extreme hell.
Based on recommendations of my neurologist, I’ve added a PM&R doctor to my lists of medical contacts. Luckily, he’s one of the nicest doctors I’ve worked with. He wrote a prescription for a new therapy: neurofeedback.
Soon, Ricky will be transitioning to a different work shift. He will be working 12-hour shifts on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Luckily, I’m independent after my stroke and I don’t need assistance. However, I worry that he will get exhausted working these hours.
Not knowing what the future is going to hold for us is stressful. All I can do is continue to push forward. 🙂
