Young Stroke Patient Learns to Live Again

Barb Wiley never saw her stroke coming. This young mother shares her story as she relearns basic tasks, one step at a time. After a 12-hour surgery, she began the recovery process — driven by a commitment to never give up and inspired by her doctor’s words: “Don’t recover to live, live while you recover.”

    I survived from a major brain stroke. You feel that getting up is hard but thats the only option which gives you the feeling that you have to choose only that action if want to live alive.

    My husband had a stroke, and was having disappointing recovery. I was able to research brain plasticity and so many topics on this site, and I desperately wanted to find something he could use to stimulate the neurons in the brain, but he couldn’t use so many of the things, because of a brain stent. he still was having problem with drop foot and kept falling, but from all the research I did, i found a comment of a stroke patient testifying of how Dr. Adebola helped her recover from stroke completely, after disability of 2 years. With his roots and herbs healing power. So i also contacted Dr. Adebola via email address, and he gave us some instructions and also courier some roots and herbs (herbal medicine) via TRANSWORLD COURIER COMPANY. With a manual for assumption, which we followed accordingly. And today is the 9th day of assumption. And my husband is already walking. Please let’s help anyone arround us, going throuhg this suffering. You can also contact Dr. Adebola via email address: dradebola@dr.com Or dr.adebola12@yahoo.com. Thanks for reading.
    Regards.

    I wouldn’t be surprised people would be getting strokes after leaving hospitals and clinics like that.

    Thank you for sharing.
    On the 4th Nov 2019 my mum suffered a stroke as well. It was the most painful time of my life seeing her go through this.
    I started stroke.sg to share good stroke information to everyone, and dedicated it to my mum.

    Im a 9 stroke survivor . Ive come a long way still have some problems on my right side dont have full sensation on right side.i still get mentally tired easily and easily get frustrated.when i had ine of the strokes i couldnt walk or talk. It was hard understanding people they sounded like charlie browns teacher. I had two TPA’s in one year. I had to learn how to balance myself again and have short term memory. I ended up developing glaucoma in my left eye and now have vertiago. Ugh .Who else has these problems still after stroke
