    Thanks for your positive energy. I am home from the hospital after 5 days. I had a mini stroke last month but didn’t have symptoms until 2 weeks ago. I could hardly walk. Luckily the stroke didn’t affect my speech or memory but my walking is unsteady. I have been active all my life. I am 66 and I will try to work as hard as possible to do my pt. But it is sometimes difficult to stay positive. I am tired most of the time but hopefully it is partially due to the drugs leaving my system. I am on blood thinners and the colors of my black and blue marks are vibrant. But no falls or bumps. They are From the drugs. Keep up you vids. Thank you for making them. Great support and inspiration. And I will look for you on FB.

    Omg ! So I’ve been watching your channel for a year or so then today came across this video. I didn’t know u had a stroke . Wow am like your mirrored copy but in the uk. My life is the Dj business as well however after my stroke nov 2014 I have serious brain overstimulation problems exaggerated by light , sound and crowds. The stoke stopped my dj career dead. This part has not got better. So today I host weddings and ceremony’s during the days and employ Djs to play the evening part. I also run a Dj agency and hire out lighting for weddings. I miss the Dj side so much.
    Look me up on Fb, would be great to chat as we may have common ground

    Thank you. Before my 3 strokes in 6 months I was a triathlon Ironman and trained twice a day. Now I struggle to climb up stairs. People can’t see that fatigue so they think your ok. But I”ll never be able to run or cycle again. Psychiatrists have helped me with depression but the pills makes the fatigue worse. My kids have been great and help a lot. After 18 months I have recovered speech going every day to orthophonists. My leg is toast but I try to walk 40 min a day. This fatigue just comes and goes without a warning. The professor said to me once: don’t give up by staying in front of Netflix , work on your brain because the part considered dead is only asleep and maybe in a few years it will wake up through solicitation. I”ll never forget that.

    I totally relate to this and it’s depressing

  16. Sandra Carranza on October 21, 2021 at 9:06 am

    I feel tired too,after my strokes!

  17. frank tomasic on October 21, 2021 at 9:09 am

    the only thing i need to do is find an income, or at least get back to work, that is the emotional hardship and fear i have…..

  18. Mel S on October 21, 2021 at 9:11 am

    Wow you hit some key points…I too had a Stroke a few years back. A Massive one it was…But for the Grace of God I am still here. I too have days where for whatever reason I just can’t get it going but then I have days where I feel refreshed and I end up taking life now..One day at a time. I try to keep Positive People and thoughts around me..as many of you already know the so called Friends will manifest themselves early on in tour recovery stage..admittedly that part three me one the biggest curves..when you realize who you thought was a good friend turned out to be a fake lame person who just turned their back on you in your time of need. But to sum it all up, I have to agree with you and I chose to handle my Stroke recovery as another chance I was given to be able to wake up and be with my Family and True Friends is a Blessing in its own way…you can either get busy living or get busy dying…hey peep this if you had a Stroke and you are reading all I wrote…you’re a survivor…for whatever it’s worth and all you been through with your Stroke..For the Grace of God..YOURE STILL HERE…!!!

  21. Linda Lai on October 21, 2021 at 9:12 am

    you are so right about the doctors

  22. DarkTownMusicGroup on October 21, 2021 at 9:13 am

    Thanks

  23. J Good on October 21, 2021 at 9:16 am

    Thank you for your testimony , I’m a husband of a stroke survivor and we’re going on 3 years this month and still experiencing those moments of fatigue, sadness , hopelessness. Besides the physical effects , right side hemiplegic , I find the cognitive issues of memory loss, delusions at times the most challenging. It’s so sad to know your mate is having such a hard time. Your spot on about the Doctors and other professionals giving advise and prognosis.

  24. Dogsoldier 1950 on October 21, 2021 at 9:16 am

    Exactly same with me

  25. Lew Fez on October 21, 2021 at 9:16 am

    Thanks, it’ll help me in understanding what my dad is going through.

  26. Blazenator on October 21, 2021 at 9:19 am

    Ya know I haven’t thought of it before but you’re exactly right the loss of someone you loved and wanted a life with was completely heart wrenching… the stroke I just had was pretty scary but not nearly as painful

  27. William Searcy on October 21, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Yes, I can relate!

  28. Linda Hayes on October 21, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Thanks for sharing! It makes me think I’m not alone here.

  29. Ryan A on October 21, 2021 at 9:24 am

    How did you get your speech back ? I suffered a massive stroke last year but my speech is still slurred

  30. Romeo Munoz on October 21, 2021 at 9:24 am

  36. Danny Boy on October 21, 2021 at 9:37 am

    I had 2 strokes!!! I get you!!! DR’S know nothing!!!! I was misdiagnosed for over two years

  37. Richard Lund on October 21, 2021 at 9:38 am

    Thank you for sharing your exsperience. I am getting over a stroke and I realized they don’t know a prognosis. Early I wanted a definitive answer but they could not give me one. I started with no speech or movement on my left side to in three months gained most movement and speech back. I’m back at work after three months but get tired once and a while. I know recovery is fast in the first three months but will slow down but continues long after that. I meet a stroke patient who had recovery five years after it happened. Everyone’s experience is totally unique.

  38. XXX Ironside on October 21, 2021 at 9:41 am

    good warrior info!

  43. YouTube troll on October 21, 2021 at 9:43 am

    Fatigue is like Mike Tyson!! It’s crazy and undefeated…i also suffer from it after my stroke

  44. Farzleen Fadzil Khan on October 21, 2021 at 9:44 am

    Thank u for this short n sweet video. It is so relatable at all levels the fatigue is real. I hd a minor stroke at 41 n now my frustration revolves around the fact that others around me dont get how at one point my energy levels are great n other times m juz tired like brain tired. Well when i tell them my brain circuits are all out of whack after the stroke although ive done all the work i.e therapy my speech my right side weakness n my fatigue are all issues i still grapple with. Like u i dont xperience depression. But how do i cope or deal with peop asking silly questions like y i keep feelin sudden outbursts or sudden lows in energy without sounding annoyed n irritated. Juz bcos i dont suffer permanent physical n mobility issues that are obvious i stillthink they all look at me and think ohhh shes makin an excuse to not to this or that. Using her fatigueness to not be social or attend gatherings etc. I still have problems with the looks and questions i get abt the hidden issues post stroke that isnt naked to the eye i.e fatigue, headaches, brain fog, disequilibrium, unable to focus, sometimes still loaing words when speak too fast or when am utterly tired. Help me deal with loved ones and those i meet along the way with their questions abt my residual symptoms.

  45. CallMeBe on October 21, 2021 at 9:44 am

    I’m one month out from my stroke today, and fatigue is definitely an issue. I’m good for maybe 4-6 hours, then I’m man down. You’re right, it’s a different kind of fatigue than that which accompanies depression.

  46. Jon Moore on October 21, 2021 at 9:44 am

    Sometimes I wonder if I’m ever going to get better

  47. Stephen Ward on October 21, 2021 at 9:45 am

    I am like this every day. Can’t sleep at night, and can’t stay awake in the day.

    I had a cortisone injection caused 4 embolic strokes and I am shattered 90% of the time.

    Doctors haven’t got a clue.
    They want to give you anti depressants, statins, drugs and shit.

    I was told I’d be dead in 2 years, rubbish, he didn’t have a clue. Told me I was fine. For 3 years I didn’t even know I had an embolic stroke as they didn’t read the MRI or CT scans properly. I was told I was mad. Then I got an apology from the Doctor. Had to laugh…

  48. Bling By Anne on October 21, 2021 at 9:46 am

    I had a stroke back in 2010. 10 years later, now for 6 months have been dealing with TIA’S and strokes. Doctors are baffled why I keep having them, and I’m only 48 years old. The fatigue is horrible.

  49. terry hardwick on October 21, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Hi Brian I have been a pro DJ for many years . Like you I suffered a stroke couldn’t walk, Talk eat double vision this was around six years ago. Spent ten weeks in hospital then pretty much sent home with not much help. . Now I can walk talk eat eye sight is good and I’m back to work. Things are not perfect. But I am functioning. If you are reading this and you have suffered a stroke be positive stay motivated and get busy living it will get better. All the best . Terry
