I am going out today. Beyond my office, beyond the grocery store. I already went to the high school to set up a meeting with the principal on an idea I have that he also mentioned to one of his secretaries. Today I go back to Rotary, I am nervous. I have not been there since my stroke. Has it changed? I know I have. I am both the same and not the same. And I mean beyond the obvious; cane, brace and curling hand. Me, as a person is different, I value different things. Faith, family, wellness and friends. Will I be an oddity? The odd person out? Will I fit in? Will I view the group the same?
I got an initial card from the group but no one has really contacted me since I have been home. They are all busy professionals. So it is silly of me to expect more.
