My 1 Year Strokeaversary October 3, 2018

Story image

I suffered a massive stroke on October 3, 2017. I lost everything. My mobility. Cognitive thinking, memory, income, and my independence ect….except my life! I had to learn how to do everything all over again. I had Loved Ones who has and still encouraged me to be strong. still here! Like a Phoenix I rose from the depths of fire. I’m still rising. If it were not for the Love of those who truly love me, I would have let go and fell deep into the abyss. Love would not let me falter!

I still have many mountains to climb. I still have a long way to go, yet I have come so far. I am now strengthening my reading, walking, and talking. I am using my right side and writing with my right hand. I still have a little noticeable difficulty in cognitive thinking, walking, talking, and writing, yet I am getting better every day! The way I see it, I have a another start....a ReBirth...My New Beginning! I give thanks!!

I want to teach others about Stroke Education...how NOT to stress and not have a stroke.

Every stroke is different for those who have had one (or several). Strokes are brain injuries, and our brains are like computers. If the mother board is cracked sometimes it finds a new route. Sometimes it doesn’t. Many families and friends do not understand....until it happens to them.

Celebrations of My New Life !!

This was my first speaking engagement since I had a stroke last October 2017!! I hope this presentation encouraged and inspired someone.
