That was all…

On July 26 I woke up a different person.
It took me six months to realise.
I had a choice: be ‘a different person’, or cease to exist.
I chose the latter for 4 years.
Now I choose the former.
It’s actually a relief.
I don’t do anything like as much.
But life is different and (dare I say it) fun.
Staying friends with people has been difficult.
Strangely people from 20 years ago have been better, because they’ve expected me to change over 20 years.
So if necessary I’ll be friends with them!
I realise this offers nothing for you.
I tried to be ‘the same person’.
But I couldn’t fake it, not for me or for you.
I’ve got to be ‘a different person’.
Which sucks for you.
But for me, who didn’t think the old model was so great, is quite refreshing.
And will work with the boys, I think, because they change anyway every six months.

I had a stroke on July 26th, 2013. I was a screenwriter. Don’t do that anymore. But have found another way to write.

  1. I like the new model too! I learned a lot from Lotje’s film about how a person is different after a stroke. And you’ll keep changing as your brain rewires. I think that’s amazing!  Really glad you’re back and that you made the choice to come back. xxL Lisa Stevens | Producer/Director    Green Acres Films Ltd. +44(0)7931 540 315 +44(0)1206 394 122 stevens.lisa@btinternet.com
