stubborn is a good thing…no, really, it is…IT IS!!

Rumor has it that I’m stubborn.

My parents will verify it.

My friends will testify to it.

Because he loves me, me husband denies knowing anything about it.

He’s smart, that one.

I used to be stubborn in work, and definitely in play.

Then I had two strokes.  And I was in a coma.  And there was a lot of rehab.

And I wasn’t stubborn anymore.

I learned to talk again.

I learned to eat again.

Every day I’m learning to walk, move, stretch, and try again.

Know what?

I’m starting to be stubborn again.

    Between your stubbornness and MY stubbornness, that baby of ours is going to be a force to be reckoned with. ;)

    Anissa You are awesome,You always have been and You always will be!
    Never give up, is that stubborn? Maybe.
    Remember an ant can move a rubber tree plant.
    So you can move more and more even if its a little at a time.
    Love You!

    Hells bells…what do you mean you weren’t stubborn! What do you think woke you up from your coma? What do you think made you fight so hard to come back? I think very few people would be where you are today.
    You are do dang stubborn that you refused to just lie there and do nothing!
    It doesn’t have to be a negative thing if used in the right way.
    Stubborn is a badge of honor to you girl. You keep getting more stubborn…in the refusing to give up way….and it will get you far!

    Stubborn just means you have your convictions and are now able to act on them. Yay!

    I don’t believe for a second that you stopped being stubborn. Let’s hear what those Rehab people have to say about that! ;-)

    Welcome back to standing on your own two feet… even if it’s still just metaphorically.

    Hey girl, it’s so nice to see the stubborn coming out in you again. Quitting has never really been your thing and it’s great to read about the progress you’ve made. Keep the fight going and know you’re missed in Florida. Lots of Love!

    That starting to be stubborn again, BEST news in a while! And, it is the best because stubborn gets you through the hard times. Stubborn gets you through the bitch that is physical therapy. Stubborn brings Anissa back all the way!

    I love this. I had JUST found you when you went and had that damn second stroke so I am so glad you are a stubborn as you are.

    You are one bad ass, amazing, STUBBORN woman. Be proud! ;)

    One of the first questions I was asked to be accepted into a rehab facility was how much I like to fight,prove others wrong and my stubbornness level? I got accepted. Keep kicking ass!
