Nursing home resident

After NRH, I was officially a nursing home resident 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️. The only time I was looking forward to was Friday, as I’d always go home for the weekend 😌👨‍👩‍👧🏠. One thing that I absolutely hated there was the food 🥴🤢. I’ll describe it in just three simple words: bland👎🏼, overcooked👎🏼, and repetitive👎🏼. I’m a hugeContinue reading “Nursing home resident”

“Common sense is not so common” 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️

“Common sense is not so common” is probably one of the truest statements. I’ve experienced this a lot throughout my journey 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ unfortunately. I’ve always heard people talk about it, but I didn’t fully understand it, or experienced it in such extent. Well! I do now🙄 They’re the kind of situations that if I tellContinue reading ““Common sense is not so common” 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️”

Orwell Private

Back in my country 🇵🇱, a nursing home is a place for old people that either want to go there, or don’t have any other choice. I never thought I would end up here, even as an old person I wouldn’t want to. It was a nightmare 😩. Life can change just like that, withContinue reading “Orwell Private”

🦋 Fall seven times, Stand up eight 🦋

After reading this post you’ll understand why I use a 🦋 butterfly 🦋 emoji everywhere on my blog. Let me start from the beginning… Every year coming up to this date (October 7th), when I suffered a brain stem stroke (2015), I would feel uneasy and upset😔! Very natural, giving the awful circumstances. An anniversary,Continue reading “🦋 Fall seven times, Stand up eight 🦋”

Where I was back then and where I am today…

Few months ago I made a list about all the changes that took place since the injury happened (I had to do that as my homework). I mean just on the physical level for now. Changes took place on every level of my life, but I’m just going to focus on one in this postContinue reading “Where I was back then and where I am today…”

It was a brain stem stroke! 😱🧠

Brain scans revealed I suffered a brain stem stroke and I was immediately placed in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU). I can only remember briefly opening my eyes and seeing a lot of nurses and doctors standing over me. My memory about the first few days in ICU isn’t that great. I think I was on soContinue reading “It was a brain stem stroke! 😱🧠”
