If survival is attained, where else do you get a "do over" on your life? Whatever is determined to be a negative aspect of your life can be discarded after a stroke. Emphasis can be put on the positive things. The real person shines through.
Hit the reset button.
Thank you Lee.
Very well said. We all hurt and it as so hard to figrue out what is going on with ourselves.
Did you ever trying to write and the thought is gone? That just happened to me just now. seriously.
I wanted to help someone and lost it. but you know what I mean.
In my ignorance. there may be someone that understands it and is ok that we are not crazy. The hardest thing about a stroke is the families to try and understand.
I have seen couples split after a stroke, and it just hurts me, but I understand too.
life and understanding about stroke survivors is hard. It is a lot harder when things are ok.. because everyone thinks you are ok, but then you have a bad spot of speaking or walking and it starts all over again.
but we love each other there all of it. You are the stroke survivors that can only understand it. You all also know how hard this was for me to type this. but that is part of the recovery.
I love you all and wish you well
