I am a stroke survivor and I would like to tell my story.
On February 21, 2014 I took my 13 year old to school just like any other day.
March 7, 2005 started off a normal day. It would end abnormally for me. I awoke normally, no problems.
I woke up puking my brains out. I was nine years old and I knew instantly that something was wrong. I quickly realized I couldn't use my right arm and I was throwing up all over my bed.
July, 2015 will make one year since my mother had a ischemic stroke. Today she is speaking very well but still having some difficulty standing on her own.
