Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Janie, TIA means exactly the same in the UK, the so-called 'mini-stroke'. However, I'm relieved to report that all my tests came back negative. I have suffered from 'Migraine with Aura' since my teens...the symptoms mimic a stroke. Google 'Migraine with Aura' or 'Classic Migraine' if you want further info.. Needless to say, I'm relieved...feeling less threatened.
         Very pleased to read that you've retired the wheelchair, Janie. Tangible, visual progress.
         I want to express my sincere thanks to those of you who've pm'd/emailed me regarding the TIA investigation. I printed off your words of comfort & encouragement & took them with me. The Doctor's consultation room was wonderfully 'crowded'... I felt greatly supported. Both Ann & I shed tears of relief before we made our way home.
       Sending love to our dear, dear Friends,
