For me it will be 2 years Dec. 19, 2012, not far off now. While I can't say I got everything back, I know my right brain hemisphere (left brain injury) has kicked in to help brain and me. Our brain has remarkable plasticity to help itself.
Depression can occur. My sibling with strokes was put on AD. I thought it was a mistake. I turned to CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), no drugs, just conditioning to positive thinking. If you were given exercises, put on your favorite music and do them every day. Fight the strike with all your might.
We are here to try and support each other......tina
