Looking for similar stroke survivorsLooking for others in a similar condition. Over 8 1/2 years ago I had my first hemorrhagic stroke. I had just turned 41 the week before. More than 4 years later I had another stroke that required hospitalization.
I've had over 3 years of daily rehab and many follow up visits since and more to come. I am in a wheelchair and have little to no feeling on my left side. I have ataxia. I am deaf in right ear with partial hearing in the left. And I hear constant ringing, noises or music. I have to keep the right eye taped shut or I see double. I can no longer move my eyes side to side and my vision worsened. I also have limited use of my left arm and hand and my speech is slurred. I lost a lot of fine motor skills so I can't write.
I'm looking for support from others who have experienced similar circumstances.
