Worst thing ever!
My grandmother had a stroke three years ago today. That was the worst day of my life. She lost her ability to speak and became paralyzed on her right side. She is in a wheelchair and constantly gets pnuemonia and urinary tract infections. She is very depressed and doesn't seem to want to go on. I honestly feel this is a horrible thing to happen to such a vibrant and amazing woman. What a shame there is no cure or reversal method. I question God all the time for doing this to her and this has definitely made me question my faith. I hate this and am so upset and disappointed that this had to happen to her. I guess good people are placed on this earth to endure pain and suffering. Great. Something to look forward to.
