    Than you Pippa but now I'm recovered in my mind from second stroke I feel I'm strong enough to not only talk up for my self with more understanding of my surroundings and every day goings on I'm on a take no nonsense  debut it makes all the difference once you can not only fight your own corner but understand what's been going on without any understanding was not aware I was so bad  feeling far better able to deal with all my issues  on phone or in person. No longer saying ohh OK then wow I was confused and unable but hey I'm back ...than you for your kind words
