I unfortunately had a mild heart attack in September 2009. Shortly after, as a result of the problem that I had, I had two mild strokes. I stayed in the hospital and then nursing living for almost four months. I was taken home the day before Christmas, which was great, except that I was not prepared for it at all. I also have some physical problems that I am still suffering from since all of that. The other problem is that to this day, I have not been allowed to drive a car.
