As a Speech Pathologist, I experienced a hemorrhagic stroke in 1992. Following rehab, I returned to my job in the schools six months post stroke, until my retirement in 2001. Currently, I am employed as an SLP on a PRN basis in a skilled nursing facility. I also am a caregiver to my fiancee who suffered a hemorrhagic stoke in 2005.
