Good Luck to you. Try to stay positive and make your goals simple. It took me 3 months to really get back to where I wanted to be, and it is a constant process. I work very hard at making myself stronger, not where I was before my brain surgery but better each day. I am happy with my progress and feel comfortable with myself today. I am older so my life is not as active as it was when I worked and I am grateful that is the case. I run 9 miles a week and walk another 15, I do yoga and weights to balance my body and hope that I can keep this pace for years into the future. I do see signs of word gaps in my thinking as sometimes I have a hard time pulling the word I'm looking for, but I make myself struggle until I find it. I'm going to take up a foreign language this year to push myself and hope that it isn't a road block for my brain. But as far and my physical well being I am happy and with my life and I enjoy my husband and my family every change I get. Each Day is A Blessing. Don't Waste It.!!!!! Do what you think is best for YOU.
