Get well soon Heretic! Until the Heretic returns we'll be short on ATS liberals/progressives with ability to write well. Hopefully the stroke has no
long-term negative consequences for reasoning ability.
She seems super strong and I have no doubt about recovery if she believes and stays positive. I don't remember a time when she wasn't around. We had
many disagreements over the years which was a blessing as it made me research harder and think deeper about so many topics. Really she is a terrific
person that brightened this place. ATS seems a bit dimmer after reading this thread today. I'm so very sorry...love, thoughts and prayers to you...
Horrible news! My strongest positive wishes and prayers for BH, who's one of my best and longest-tenured friendly rivals. She's always been a shining
example of being able to disagree without being disagreeable.
I worked 7 years as a nursing assistant. Strokes are rough. Tell her to be patient and try not to get too frustrated. It's easy to get exasperated
when your own body isn't listening to you or cooperating with your brain's instructions.
You are strong, BH. So strong that you will frustrate yourself because you want more! healing! faster!!
Be easy with yourself, friend. I know that doesn't come naturally to you. Take your time. Lots of love and support coming from us to you. Taking
your time doesn't mean you can't fight. Hell, you can't HELP fighting, but try to be gentle with yourself. We'll be here waiting for you.
