as the title suggest i had a stroke, and i am very munch alive and loving every minute of my life, and i have beengiving the oppertunity to be home and close to my family and just loving the moment as i go through life i know now that i am very bless, to be giving the oppertunity to see what life has to offer me , and it has alot but you have to be willing to accept , the way that a stroke has affected your life but has still giving the oppertunity to relive and to enjoy life the way that you should i have a grand son christian, the love of my life and most importantly i have a family who accept methe way i am stroke and all i don"t have to prove anything to my family and it is just important to my family that i am still here and ebjoying life all that i can a stroke may have left you with the inability to walk but you can still think and a stroke may have left you with the inability to use your left arm and fingers but you can still love and loved welland be loved by all of your families and the stroke may have left you not being able to do like you use to but there is so munch more to life than walking or in having the use of youboth arms don"t morn about the loss of your ability that you think that you have lost instead think about what you have as a surviverit"s not about recovering and how munch can i get no it"s about accepting how you are and how important you are to all that you are close to your family and your loved ones when you think about it you spent alot of time on leasrning how to do what you use to do be thankful for what you have your family do"nt expect nothing from you just to be here and love all that you can and i think that is why life is so great and thats what recovery is truely what its all about and that is to accept you for what you can"t do the way that all of your family have accept you so be happy knowing that your family is happy to have you stroke or no strroke so be hap[py that you are a surviver i know i sure am glad and i just bet that if you ask your family what do you think they will pick you every time and i think just knowing that that is true that is part of recovery

Lenny,

 

Thank you for your blog. Lately on the chats, so many survivors and caregivers want that"magic pill" that doesn't exist. Instead of being grateful for what they do have, they moan and complain about what they can't do. I know there are no easy answers, and time is required for healing. Teaching people to be patient is a challenge for sure.

Obviously, the stroke has left you with a wonderful ability to speak with great emotion, empathy and wisdom. Your blog should be required reading. I thank you for your great insight and wish you the best.
