  1. Thanks for your note. Sorry to hear about your late husband Ray. The thing I struggle with the most is dizziness, hopefully that will improve over time. Unfortunately I am on my own and have to do everything myself which I have had to do from the day after my stroke, hence motivation is a constant battle with me on a daily basis specially when I hardly see any improvements. Your husband must have been pretty tough to withstand all those strokes.
  2. Thanks Becky so much for the note. Yes I managed to get over the swallowing after about 2 months and just eat normally now, no pEG etc. My biggest problem is ongoing dizziness, I have been told to do Gaze Stabilisation exercises, just started them 2 weeks ago, not sure if they will work or not, haven't noticed a change yet. I also do balance exercises, plus I walk about 2.6klms per day. Did you suffer from dizziness? If so any tips? Thank you
