Aw Hunter that's gotta be hard. But, I do remember when I moved far from my parents, the bond with my mom got stronger, and has remained strong..so strong in fact that now I live 2 minutes away from her

Ya I didn't get to close to my mom until I moved away - and it was a lot farther than 4 and half hours. I was younger than my daughter when I moved away.

Heck, when I moved out of my parents house they packed up and moved in case I returned!

As for strokes, Em's mother had one just over a year ago. This was her second, the first was whilst she was having stents put in her head to stop bleeding - this one was at home.
She more or less totally recovered from the first but this one has left her paralysed down her left side. She can walk now but her arm is dislocated and they will not put it back because they say it will not stay in.

Although the physical damage was bad enough it was the mental that was hard to take.
She was so nasty to Em and her sister, nothing for them both to be here in tears. As for me I was a banned word. They could not even say my name! If we met I was ignored and snubbed but I just carried on as usual.
I would send little meals down and they would be returned or I was told the dog thought it very nice.
Em was so upset but I just never let it get to me because I knew it was not the same person I had known for years. It took a good 9 months before she came around. I picked up as if nothing had ever been any different. We are still great friends and she knows I would do anything I can to help her.

I have also worked with a lot of stroke victims with Riding for the Disabled, though the worse affected usually took up driving.

When we had the RDA sessions parking was difficult with all the helpers, the kids buses and the adult riders cars.

In the UK disabled people can be provided with a three wheel vehicle. They do not take passengers and are limited on speed and being made fro fibre glass, very light. All are a light blue.



One day we were really busy, three men who rode had parked their three identical vehicles behind each other, on the hill, with Arthurs right into the wall of the tackroom.

Another rider had a mini adapted for her to drive. She asked if I could bring the car to her as she was very weak after her lesson.
I was told it was automatic - which was fine. I start it up and have to reverse back to get room to get out.
Now, the foot pedals were blocked off and all was done with a hand control.
The car had enough power to go back with no throttle. I out it in forward gear and as it was going to take some shunting to get it out of the gap, I pressed down on the hand control, to brake - only it accelerated form 0 - 50 with one press of the handle.
This put me straight into the back of Dick's car which, in turn went into Harry's car, which went into Arthurs which went into the tackroom wall.

The tthree men were all watching and having trouble standing they thought it was so funny.
Doreen who owned the mini, lacked a sense of humour. Her car was unmarked and with the cars all shunted a couple of feet forward, I removed hers from the gap with no problem.

When the men had stopped laughing Harry said "I did mine in Ryde yesterday."
Arthur said "I did mine in Cowes today."
Harry said "Well I had better do mine in Newport tomorrow."

All three vehicles were split front and back, nothing major.

I really thought that with hand controls down would be for braking and up for acceleration.

I was wrong!
