    First of all, I want to say how truly BLESSED all these ppl are to have recovered as well as they have. They can talk and express themselves. My husband’s stroke was massive and he laid on the floor for 3 hrs. before I got home. It was another hour until the ambulance arrived and transported him to the hospital. HE TRULY should not have LIVED. He did. He gets emotional very easily. He lost his speech, ability to read and write. He recovered his ability to walk. He should have lost the vision in his right eye, hearing in the right ear and should have drop foot. Prayers were a key factor in his recovery. He can’t tell you how it’s impacted his life. He can’t even remember when it happened, which is probably a good thing. But, he can tell you he met Jesus on the floor! A stroke changes everything in your life. The best thing you can do is make an assessment of what you’ve got left, start building from there and move forward. But, it also takes someone who really loves and cares about you. I hope all of you have that! I feel it may be the most important thing!

    I had a stroke six weeks ago and I’m 26 I’m scared to wall up my stairs and I don’t like going near the spot where I collapsed. I fear for my life "one more head injury and you won’t make it" Says the doctors my head hit my entertainment center and split it in half. My jaw is broken so is my knee and left hand they put me in a coma for a week to heal my brain. My left hand has a mind of its own now. I can’t control it. Now I have the urge to strangle people. They said my mind would change but I didn’t think like this. They said not to act on my Impulses so I don’t.
