Monday will mark the one year anniversary of my first stroke. Not sure if I can handle it. I will, but my emotions are shaky now just thinking about it. After I get over that anniversary hump it will be six weeks away from the second stroke. I will not be huddled in a corner crying but I will be probably be driven crazy at work. I am also going to see a surgeon about my thyroid and if I need a biopsy done. It's funny how many issues I am having now after my stroke. I have chronic kidney disease but at stage one and I hope to stay there. Just found out I am anemic...again. Last time I was in high school. I thought I was anemic before but my test didn't show anything. I have seen so many doctors but nobody ran that freakin test until now. But the doctor who ran the test didn't tell me. I just gave my primary doctor my latest test results and she just said it. Now I don't feel bad about taking so many naps! I do wish to get my results of my ultrasound showing what my pancreas is doing. Also having my eye exam Friday. I am not ready. I'm seeing an ophthalmologist as opposed to an optometrist.
I am still seeking into why I had my strokes. A couple of months ago there was a commercial talking about the drug Invokana and it's side effects. When I googled it with stroke some law firms came up. I contacted two lawyers but they turned me down but I will keep trying. I might not be successful but I will try. Going back to the first hospital and checking with that doctor to see if medicine caused first stroke. Second stroke was a TIA that could have resulted in me not easing back into normal life.
But nonetheless I am alive. I'm blessed and here to see another day.
