: hi francis- my fiance who is 31 yaears old had a stroke on july 3rd and then another on july 6th.i am dealing (under the circamstances). But i'm having a hard time excepting the fact that he may not be a "normal" person. i really dont know what to expect, he is in nero rehab at the moment, and he participates some of the time. But the other part of the time he is very fustrated, confused?, he cannot speak, so we dont know how he is feeling.but there is alot of anger. i really would like to talk to someone who is going through the same things.our wedding date was tomarrow.please respond.
Dear Rene, It is heartbreaking to hear what has happen to you and your fiance. Thirty years old is so young, with your pending marriage and futures ahead of you. My husband was 50, thought that was young.The most important thing for you is to try to find support, someone who has been there.I found a very good friend on this message board and she has helped me trememdously. Just talking to someone who truly understands helped me more than anything, and I also found a good friend.Greg improved greatly after the first week and then slowly ever since, two and half years. There has been some changes that I have to learn to deal with. Please email me if you want and I can share experiences with you. gfw@aol.com
