46 year old stroke survivor
In 2006 6 weeks after I married I suffered a stroke leaving my left side paralyzed
I have been in and out of physical therapy for the last 6 years. My husband was my caretaker and recently told me he no longer wants to be and wants a divorce. Needless to say I am hurt and devastated. I am on permanent disability and it will be difficult on my own but I will survive this latest blow in my life. "I try to understand why this is happening to me but am having difficulty understanding what God's plan is for me. Many questions with no answers.
