I have a friend who had a stroke several years ago and she is in a wheelchair and for the most part housebound. She lost her dear husband the same year I lost my Bill to cancer. We have always had a common bond...

Sometimes when you feel stressed, you may not take care of yourself and forget to exercise, eat properly and rest.|
