suicide hotline phone number atI'm trying something new here. I have no idea how this will work out and would love your feedback in the refining of this page, but let's give it a try and see what happens! Please offer suggestions if you have ideas of how to make this system work more smoothly.
I get lots of penpal requests. Like you, I am just a fellow strokie, working toward recovery, going to endless appointments, trying to regain what I can of the life I once knew! I can't usually even reply to every email I receive in a timely fashion and I can get totally stressed even trying. I am very blessed with one very close stroke pal and a handful of more casual and less frequent email contacts, but honestly, my plate is full to overflowing and I just can't keep up with many more ongoing relationships.
I LOVE getting to know folks and helping or encouraging where I can, so I do not want to discourage your one or two-time contacts to share your story, resources or other thoughts. But I fear disappointing you if you need more than this from me because I just don't have it to give to so many people, over the long term. I'm not complaining in the least, just trying to evaluate the situation realistically and come up with a solution that will bring the most comfort to the most people!
Here's my idea. If you are looking for an email buddy, leave a comment here or email me directly (StrokieGal AT gmail DOT com) with your name, age, sex, religious affiliation, how old you were when or how long ago since you stroked, the email address you would like to use, and any other (no more than a single paragraph) information you would like to include (location/type of stroke, current deficits, country or state if desired, what you are specifically looking for in an email buddy, etc.) and I will be happy to post it on this page for other to contact you directly. Once you have established a good relationship with at least one other person, let me know that you are matched so I can mark your story that way and remove your contact information.
What do you think? Could we make this thing work? Please visit often to see new listings for new friends to connect with. But please be careful about sharing personal information, like phone numbers or physical addresses online! You only know who people say they are. I have been a victim of internet fraud from people I had really grown to trust, in the past, and it is NO fun! On the flip side, some of my closest friends I have never or only occasionally met in person, so online relationships can become true and deep! I just want to remind everyone for the need for wisdom and caution, especially those of us who may now deal with impaired levels of judgement! Participate in interactions from this page at your own risk. I offer no personal endorsement of anyone posting here in search of an email pal.
