  1. I had a brain stem stroke almost four years ago and walking is not my strong suit.I am ataxic and my walk is a little drunken.I find that a pair of hiking poles is a great help if I am out for a long walk or a hike. I makes me a four legged creature and helps with the balance and stability. I know that this is as good as I am going to get. I also helps in crowds such as the farmers market People will give you more space and not cut you off. I will always be at great risk for falling. Some things are not going to change. I find that acceptance of my deficits can be very positive

      Thank you, For my birthday i received two coronary artery stents. The process included a repeat of some of my worst stroke symptoms. I had very painful leg spasms that morphine would not relieve. Luckily I remembered Robaxin from my stroke rehab, that finally had a calming effect. It seems that we are never done with the struggle. There is always a new test. Keep strong, Roger
