How did you come to accept the new you, and how long did it take?

I THINK ACCEPTANCE COMES IN BITS & PIECES.

4 ME, THE HARDEST THING 2 ACCEPT WAS THE LOOKS I GOT FROM OTHERS–ESP.
ELEMENTARY-AGED KIDS. I WAS ABOUT 3 YEARS POST-STROKE, B4 I COULD DEAL
W/THAT, & ALL THE PIECES STARTED 2 COME 2GETHER.

I FOUND IT HELPED TO LAUGH AT THINGS, & FIGURE OUT WAYS THAT A STROKE HAS
BLESSED MY LIFE (LIKE HOW I AM THE COOLEST MOM, BECUZ WE HAVE A SWIM-SPA,
ELEVATOR, & BIG TVS…OR HOW I ONLY NEED 2 IRON THE FRONT OF CLOTHES, SINCE
I’M IN A W/C)

I THINK U ALWAYS MISS THE “OLD U,” & THAT IS FINE! JUST DON’T DWELL ON
IT!
