An old blog of mine…….strokes, death and the aftermath.

I was looking through some old postings and re-read my blog from over a year ago, written when my Mother was dying as the result of a stroke. I need to finish the blog – it was interrupted by the need to be with my Mother, and then  to repatriate her and arrange the funeral, and then to have a period of planned insanity. I will complete it soon. But I wanted to share it again, first, because it is so different from  how  I usually am, and the many responses I had to the blog when it first appeared made me realise that we are all “different selves” when confronted with death and suffering, or with neglect and idiocy. And I was made forcibly aware that it doesn’t matter who we are, what we do for a living, how much money we have, how bright or otherwise we are, or who we know – at heart we have that turbulence and pain right at our core and it is how we manage it that matters.
