being happy that i can still find that person

There’s a place where I go and get to not be handicapped-Anissa for a while.  I go there and I get to be a little more the person I used to be.  It’s healing.  It teaches me to let go and just be the me that I want to be.

If slower.

And not quite as with it.

But BACK, and that is more than I thought I would be.  More than they told me possible.

This past week I had to help organize an event.

In the old days (pre-strokes), I could have done this with no help, no problem, time a-plenty.

As it was, some things had to be handled by others, there were issues to be corrected mid-stream, a post that should have taken me minutes took me hours.

But it was done.

With the patience and understanding of my friends, I was able to be what they needed.

For a few hours, I was the ME of yesterday.
