life after stroke

Posted 10-16-2010 at 04:08 PM by northcountryjim

I had my first stroke on my 46th birthday. worst birthday ever . now a year and a half later i'm still deaf in the right ear and have balance issues . I live in isolation with little hope to prosper and be a contributing member of society,and the hope of meeting a true love is non exsistant . Living alone stinks lol.
