After spending 4 years of life and finding out I(at the age of26) had a stroke ,was along long road. Now i am 31 and enjoying life it may have changed my plains in life and my outlook in life. I am gonna live it to the fullest. I suffered a stroke at 26 in 06 then a TIA in 08 then in

2009 almost 2010 the doctors found out I had a rear disease called Moyamoya which means puff of smoke in japanese the main artery to the brain that carries blood to the brain was blocked on the left and right side since birth I looked healthy on the outside bigness not getting blood to the brain. I under went brain surgery may of 2010 for an enter artery bypass of EDAS (if u read on the website) so since then my brain is getting vessels and it all looks good. Now the surgery did not get rid of the disease but it's something I can live with.

Natasha, I almost welcomed you to blogworld but I see you have had a few entries, just nothing recently so instead welcome back!

 

I have heard of moyamoya and realise it is a serious condition. But you found someone able to do something constructive about it and had some surgery to make your life better.

 

Congratulations on your attitude, living life to the fullest! Hope it works out a wonderful life from hereon in.

Welcome back to our wonderful world of blogging. I wondered about you though thought you must be busy with your school & other things. I am glad you are taking this stroke thing in a stride & making great lemonade out of it. you are still very young & have whole life ahead of you so living it to fullest is best thing one can do to enjoy life. I am glad your brain surgery is done with it & you can move on to living & enjoying life to fullest.

Thank u for the comments. It has not been easy and it's far from over,but as long as my family and friends and guidance of God I can get through it. There are those times I wonder why me and I still have questions but then we all have them, but I just take it and my situation on day at a time and at what my pace is and that's all we as people can do.
