Since, my stroke, I have turned into a CVA Private Investigator, scanning large crowds for possible survivors... I have always been a people watcher-big time, now, I am an annoying CVA survivor hunter. I think, I have a young male survivor in our neighborhood. He is very well functional, and I run into him a lot at the local 'walking /bike trail.'
Also, when my daughter took swimming lessons, a grandfather was there, and looked like a survivor as well, with an older stroke. He was very functional, but one calf was very smaller than the other, and 1 arm not as active as the other.
Do any of you guys try to figure out if others are survivors in your community? Or I may be weird.
I had a lady ask me the other day,"Did you have a stroke in your arm?
Hell, I wish it only effected my arm, but I am glad that only my arm is noticable. I have worked so hard, on my gait in P.T. It is not my normal gait, but much better.
I have been to a B-day party today, that started at 10:00 a.m. and we didn't get back until 5:00p.m.!!! I am beat.
I got sunburned but only my stroke side!!?? Weird?? It was a family B-day party with horse back riding, swimming, volleyball, horse shoes, I was a spectator:) I went with my BIL and MIL and DD.
I volunteered to work in SS at church for the next 2 months, better go and get some sleep.
