Reading is the only real pleasure i get. My wife would argue that point. She'd say that her regular visits are a pleasure too and, of course, they are. Reading is a good pasttime though, whether it be a book or a blog, because I don't have to answer back. They take you to a world where they don't question you or expect anything from you, except your time and your attention. Blogs are pretty good because you can interact with them. They don't need to know your condition. They just don't care.
Not being disabled is so important. It gives me my life back for a while and allows me to forget how it is now and how it was back then. I'd like to write a book one day. It'd be an adventure and would explore the world which i live in today. I've been disabled for nearly five years now and it's proved to be different to anything i've ever known it could happen. I just don't know.
There are some good blogs and i enjoy reading them. They inspire me to do better things with the time i have left. There WAS a time when i wrote four blogposts a day. Who i expected would read them, i don't know. Getting married has changed my life for the better. I've been with her for twenty seven years this October and we've had our ups and downs.
There's not much i can do since i had the stroke, but reading relieves the boredom i face everyday. And that's a good thing.
