Hi Crystal and welcome to this great support site. I am so sorry you have been through so much for so long without accurate answers that could help you get your best support and health care. I can only imagine how it has affected your past years. Grrr just so frustrated for you. I am glad you found this site after some actual answers. I think you will feel very welcomed and at a place that offers understanding to those blips like you explained (the Dr. floor). So many of us have been in that exact circumstance and very much relate. I actually was not diagnosed the night I was rushed to the hospital by ambulance and was released less than 2 days after admitted. I know how I was affected and like I said can only imagine your situation. I was finally diagnosed 2 months after. I am also so glad your brain bleed wasn't any worse...they can be so dangerous. You are in a lot of ways very lucky. It still doesn't make up for all the mistakes. I hope you find some more answers here...I know you'll find a lot of great people. :hello: BTW MY name is Tracy.

Crystal, You must have a lot of unanswered questions. After reading your story, my first question is  if the doctors ever found out what was causing your strokes? Knowing what caused your strokes may help you to put your life together and it might help you to prevent having another stroke.. We will try to help you with your questions, too. Just ask away, and we'll do our best. Welcome to Stokenet!   Becky
