I am ... A Survivor

I was in school during my second semester of my junior year in college. I had gone to class and work and when I returned one night I had a massive headache I called my mother and told her I wasn't feeling well I could feel my left leg an arm becoming numb. A friend of mine carried me to my room. I could feel my body experiencing a sudden daze. My friends rushed to the hospital. I suffered from a massive stroke with bleeding to my head.


the stroke has truly changed my life.

Hello Briona.

I cn understand what you've been though. I had a bad stoke on my way home from work. I didnt crash I made it home but it really did change my life.

I was able to recover with the help of my gorlfriend and her daughter and a close family support I recovered.

I was started off in a wheel chair to a walker to a cane. But I made it back to work three months later.

I'm not 100% but I am 80% and love life even more
