I Miss ATS.
Mostly my "friends" here - whether they agree or disagree with me. I just miss the conversations with the people here. I miss talking about the
Constitution, the legal stuff, the amendments, the politics and everything that's happening in the world... mostly what's happening in the US. I
know it's going crazy, but I don't know much details, because I can't read about it.
I used to read a LOT!!! Every day. And, I used to write a LOT on ATS. I talked a LOT! LOL! I'm sure you know. I remember thinking that the stuff I
wrote was important. I thought some of the stuff sounded really smart! LOL! And I know some of you thought I was an idiot. It's all good.
But, I really miss it all... because my life changed so much when I had a stroke in October.
These days, the best I can "read" are my own recipes, small emails from my sister, and small 20-page children's magazines (National Geographic Kids
) and it takes about 2 weeks to read one. My favorites are about animals. Recently, there were articles there about
wolves, pandas, and large cats... Did you know that a tiger's roar can be heard over a mile? For my brain, I do jigsaw puzzles and I play brain power
Fortunately, I can understand most of what I hear, as long it's general information. Politics is beyond my proficiency. My husband explains when I
asked about details that I am interested in. I can't understand movies. They go too fast. I can say most of what I need to say. Sometimes I forget
the words, but that happens to everyone! LOL! I can drive, get groceries and do most daily jobs. I can cook (I am still a great cook LOL! I miss the
food forum) and I can take care of Jaia. I take an hour walk every day. It helps my health and my sanity.
Sometimes I get depressed because I miss the life I used to have. But I quickly realize that I have my health and I have the love of my husband,
family and friends. But, yeah, I miss ATS.
Love to you all. I really appreciate Night Star (you're just a doll!) and those of you who have said things to me. I miss Masqua and our friends here
who have gone away. All of you will always be important to me. I'll stop by sometimes.
