I am ... A Survivor

At 30 I had an ischemic stroke which went misdiagnosed and caused more damage, this event drastically altered my life, I lost more than the use of my arm and leg, my job, my husband, my children all gone in one blink of an eye


I had a stroke at the age of 40. I am recovering well but what a wild ride. I was basically paralyzed. I went from not walking to a wheelchair to a walker and now a cain. All this has improved from less than 1 year. I am also driving a car. I'm now eating normal as well.

Have you recovered at all?
