I have good news

I know I am new and I know the doctor had been telling me I would not be returning to work back in October. But since the increase of my meds. and it appears that that God really has different plans for me. in my last blog I posted how I woke up thinking and feeling as if I had never had a stroke and then it hit me. Well since my meds have been regulated and I feel as I did prestroke. I called my doctor and talked with her and begged her to return to work. Since it something I really love doing. I know there is risk with me returning and those I work with know this too and but I know I can do my job as I once did. So yesterday I went in and refilled out my application and just waiting on the word to head back in. I am excited and scared at the same time since I was at work when it all started. I know easy does it and to watch my stress levels and to watch for other signs.But in reality I am not walking around in that cloud/ haze anymore and the funny thing is I seem to be memory things much faster now then I did before. All I know it for me it is a blessing. and I pray that it is not short lived.

I really don't want to sound like I am bragging I just want to say that there is always hope even when they say there is none. I know I did not suffer a massive stroke only a major stroke but at the age of 39 and with no known cause as to why it happen and going without any type of treatment for it for 6 almost 7 days because no one would listen I really feel blessed and now 6 months later with nothing more then being fed pills and me finding my own way to do a physical therapy, speech therapy and all the rest. and in all honesty my husband and my son were my driving force. When I found this site you all became my hope. Your stories let me know what I felt was real and I was not alone in how I felt. And I know Our family has been talking about working on fund raisers and that to help raise awareness for Strokes we have started in our own work places and are working towards our communities. I will try and be back here often you all will always be in my heart and in my prayers. When that road seems to get too tough to travel always reach out your hand and know someone will be there for you.

It is a blessing you can go back to what you did prestroke and I hope it all works out for you just remember to exercise when you can because part of your body has no guidance from the brain where just picking your foot up you have to control that by eye sight!!

 

I went to work after stroke for three years at Walmart and was still going to therapy!! I wish you much success and let us know how it's coming along after awhile!!!
