Strokes suck!Hi. I'm Laurrie. In 2013 I had both an ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke on August 1st. Here that is why my doc gave me pills to take for HB a year earlier.....I didn't know HB can cause a stroke! Heck, I didn't really know what a stroke is. It left me effected on my right side.
I am the step mother of three, mother of one and grandmother of nine. Very active in work and church as well as very crafty and simply love to cook/bake. As I said, I had my stroke in 2013 and my youngest son in 2-a-days for football ready to start his senior year. My son told me, "You will walk me across that football field with Dad!" There was my motovation.
I learned how to walk again (not great, but I can walk) and sure enough I walked across that football field with them! Since than; I strove to be independent. Though I quit work; I cook a full course meal everyday, do laundry, fold it, drive and clean house.
Grant it, I have my days of "whoo me", though the way I look at it, there are people who are worse off than myself.
