Staying home not a option

My life changed September 04, 2001. I was at the gym working out which I did four times a week. I passed out. I had a MRI done and the doctors found out that I had a huge brain stem aneurysm that leaked.

The doctor did not know how to perform surgery on me. The doctors did treat me and said I would have a 100% recovery. But two weeks later I stroked out and my right side was paralyzed.

I also have a lot of balance problems and double vision. I cannot drive anymore because my equilibrium is out of wack.

Is this a success story? I don't know.

I go to rehab 3 times a week, hopefully one day I will go back to work. I am only 44 years old and staying home is not an option for me.
