I'm sorry I only recently discovered the web and this message board. Please look at my reply re. Herb. It can take ages for the brain to recover from its 'bruising', this along with the psychologicaland physical shock can take a long time to settle down. Any aerobic exercise - no matter how limited, will help. I discovered this after I decided to try to compensate for total lack of sensation on my right side by building up muscle. Check it out with the doctors first in case it's not suitable. Starting out very slowly with wrist and ankle weights I did build up my strength. The bonus was that my depression lifted. I'm sorry that only years later did I discover the powerful effect of good quality anti-oxidants, which restored my ability to read and write, and my intellectual powers in general. Acupuncture and herbalism is also worth checking out. TLC and patience are essential. Best wishes from Linda:
: My mother is recuperating from a stroke and has made slow progress. The biggest problem she is dealing with now is a lack of appetite and depression. I would like to hear from anyone who has dealt with these symptoms. Thank You
