Awesome Mountain Girl:
My Post-Stroke Journey back to the awesome me I used to be

This is my daily blog.   I get up and prepared to  face the day, make a cup of coffee and go to my office to write and publish a post every day.  Call it therapy – I enjoy it and I hope you do too. I sincerely hope others on this journey with me will find. something helpful or inspiring in what I write. I had the stroke 18 months ago and I’m on a self-directed rehab program working with a local team  of amazing people helping me get my awesome back.
