I am ... A Survivor

I had a stroke September 16. I was sleep and woke up because I fell off my bed. it took me about 45 minutes to get back in bed. The next morming I eventually called my boyfriend who rushed me to the hosptial. I was told I had a stroke. It didnt run in my family and I was pretty healthy. It will be 6 months at the end of this week. I walk with a little bit of a limp but no brace. My arm is doing better but my hand still has some paralysis. Overall it's been a tough 6 months but I am stronger than ever. Don't let anyone bring you down. Whether its day 1 or day 365. You will regain all that you have lost.


Thank you Danielle for those encouraging words I had my stroke September 2015. I'm stil recovering. Everyone is saying I'm getting better but it is a slow process.
