I am ... A Survivor

I am an RN, at the age of 64. I had my stroke. It affected the right side of my body and my speech. I was one of the lucky ones, I got to the hospital and was given TPA which resolved the clot and my speech returned.
It’s been 20 months since my stroke, I still am tired and occasionally trip because I have some residual footdrop. I returned to work and try really hard not to let my condition affect my work. There are days when I succeed and others when it gets me down. Life goes on, I won’t let this condition win.
