Stacey Klein


I'm a 41 year old female who had a mild left brain stroke March 7, 2005 in Takoma Park, Maryland. I was 39 at the time. It affected my right side. At first I could not walk.


Speech was never a problem for me...actually the speech therapist was LOOKING to find things to work on with me. Eventually, she asked me to help out by trying to understand another patient's speech. I also never had any cognitive losses, except I'd passed out WHEN the stroke happened. So, that I do not recall.


My right arm and hand do not work properly...and my right leg can support me, but I cannot walk for long periods.


I use a four-pronged cane when outdoors...inside I'm pretty good without anything for support. My right ankle does occasionally turn and I can lose my balance at that point, but I do pretty well.

Not much else to tell. I'm up in Canada but was born in the U.S..


I cook the same, though maybe go about it differently. I feel lucky, the stroke damage was not bad.
