Re: My Stroke

Oh yes, the confidence and fatigue factors and despondency. CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), which I've tried to learn on my own, helps as well as learning about left and right brain differences. My left brain suffered the injury (right side body impairment), but the right brain woke up and is a joy.

Do my best to live today, exercise and meditate every day, it has been 18 months with no incident and slow, steady improvement. So time is an encouragement. Give yourself credit for all you can do and try to do. Our brain wants us well and its plasticity compensates for injury. Hope leads the day.
