A few years ago, when I just had my stroke, I tried to do everything myself and fell a lot. I let things fall a lot also. I spilled a freshly cup of coffee on my crotch, and could not stand up fast, so I slowly stood and took my pants of. By the time I got it off, the coffee was cold. And everything underneath my pants was cooked. I remember all the falls I had, and remember when each one was happening, I thought "Timber!". It was like watching a movie in slow motion as I fell. At least any one beneath me had plenty of time getting out of the way. You got to laugh at yourself, it will keep you sane, if nothing else.

And don't forget to laugh at everyone else, humans are sooooo funny to watch

I don't want anybody else. But nights like these, I wish I wasn't alone anymore.
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

I did not understand the poem when I heard it the first time, I thought it was romantic. But now, I understand it too well. I though that if anything like this happened to me, I would be the tragic person with a sad background to boot. But sad is all it was when it happened. Loneliness is what followed.
