The Doc said a 47xxx isn’t a type of Cowboy Hat (Darn!)
I'm Lady Jewells, at least that's what name I slurred to the paramedic that asked me if I knew my name. The paramedics were trying to assess me to determine my level of impairment. He had asked me, but I did not know what my name was for several seconds. Then it came into my mind in pieces.. "Laa Mmm Laad, Mmm Laaady Jew-el-ls. My head hurt something awful and I was having another stroke. I also told them the date was.. June 4, 1999!
It was June 4th, 2009!!! AS it turns out, Lady Jewells was and is my pen name.
Life was stressful earlier that school year, but it was summer and life was just getting better and rocking along more smoothly, until June 4th, 2009, I when I suffered an acute ischemic stroke to my left frontal lobe. Ever the comedian, I choose to make the best of Life's Lemon's. So just visualize Jethro Gibb's from NCIS - Slapping Tony on the back of the Head! Wake-up! Jethro played the part of GOD. God decided I needed to WAKE UP & change directions...
Strokes do damage - Mine was no different, but in some ways it was very different. For starters, I died. In those few prescious moments I was pain free AND I have never felt more loved than I did in that moment. OhMyGawd! And What happened next, I am still processing. But suffice to say, my stroke was and is a new beginning.
The next part of my life is a gift from God. The story, Lady Jewells Has a Stroke is just the beginning..
The Wellness Plan... The Great Spirit said, "Change the Message and the behavior will change. Just Love yourself. Just share your love. Love me, as you Love yourself."
In approximately 15 minutes, I lost 10 years of memories, partial use of my right-side and I lost a chunk of basic skills... I needed Speech Therapy, computer skills, reading and writing skills and physical therapy. What better way - to rebuild me than by writing and talking....So I let my spirit walk free than on paper. I gave myself the freedom to write stories on any topic I thought of or someone suggested. My goal was and is to experience as much of life as I can, from my personal computer (that I was learning how to use).
I believe in the law of attraction. I believe in the Secret. The Great Spirit told me I would heal - have faith. Future Opportunities will come - walk towards it. I wanted to live. There was a whole world out there - 1000's of teachers to teach me about Life. The Great Spirit said, Life is a journey. Walk, observe, listen and trade your truths.
Therefore the writings posted here on Booksie and Booksie Silk, are stories about me - Trying on Life. A sort of Dress Rehearsal, per se. I wanted to be loved and feel loved again... So I became Life's Actress... I told myself, "I will stand in the 1st person's perspective and try to be whatever I am talking and writing about. " My old friends were living life. I had to get well - so I could do and experience life... I couldn't even walk...Friends would visit me and share old memories... And as I became computer literate, I met new friends on social media - Facebook.
Life is about Living.... The Posted Threads Ton Facebook taught me to live again - I wanted and want to experience new things. Talk to me & Teach me! - (Think about the Movie, "Nemo!" - "Fish are our Friends! and "Just keep Swimming!" ) ...The stories written here are memories, fantansies, thoughts & my Truths about life, post stroke. I am evolving.
By writing - I am rebuilding parts of me and evolving as I walk these wonderful new insights and journey among the people of this world. I am weaving a path of wellness and my legacy is a trail of jewels, bits of wisdom and fun.
To me, My writings are my gifts to the world - I have new gifts of insight and perspective. As I heal - I am learning new things. I want my stories to spark ideas in other people. I write about every thing that is out there. No subject is off limits.
I walked as a teacher befor my life changing event. Through the years, I taught all my students to walk honestly and learn their own truths. See life from several perspectives, not just yours. "My truth may not be your truth." Because Our truths are colored by our perspective, our emotions, our education, our culture, and our spiritual foundations. Loving and living is about learning to love who all you are and to respect our differences.
To many people, I am a gift of perspective and love.
I have lived a full and storied life. I walk a positive path of wellness. Everywhere people gather and interact is an opportunity for more wellness. With every meeting, people exchange their energy. If you meet and vent = wellness. If you meet & exchange love = wellness. Thus, to me Every opportunity I am given, is a chance to share as much unconditional love as I can muster. ** Have Faith... *** THe Great Spirit is in everything and everyone!!

Enjoy life......I am, Lady Jewells
