Most of us here tend to think about themselves pre-stroke and post stroke. I never returned to how I was pre stroke, the new me is different in so many ways...more patient, more positive, more at ease with myself, much more appreciative, etc. While the stroke itself did not have as much to do with those things, the act of recovery did.
It was in recovery that I learned so much about myself that I would have never been challenged enough to find out without it.
Thank you, well said and great point.
