I’m in the process of building a brand new life right now. There are very few people from my “old life” (pre-stroke life) that I care about bringing into my new life. Those people know who they are. For the most part I want new people in my life. I only want to be around people who are understanding, unfortunately most people are not. I am recovering from a massive brain injury and even though it doesn’t look like it, I still have a ton of problems and I might have problems for the rest of my life. I can have zero stress in my life right now. Stress will inhibit my recovery greatly. So no stress for me. If you cause me to be stressed out, you’re out of my life. That would suck for you, cause I’m really funny. 🙂 That sounds really conceited, but I don’t care. This experience has pretty much made me not give a crap about most things. It’s time for me to be selfish, and to help other people when and if I can. Although I don’t think I am being selfish, doing things to make your life better – that’s not selfish.
