hi everyone. I recently had a stroke and I am having so much frustration and difficulty with family trying to understand what are some great things I can give them to help them understand me and my emotions. They seem just as frustrated as I am and it is hard to tell them what is going on with words. I find the more I talk, the slower my speech becomes. Is this normal?
Getting this lets me know I am on the right track. I wrote back:
Just take each day as It comes…and be greatful you are alive! Your other side will come back; it just takes time. My stroke was 7 years ago. I couldn’t move my right fingers for 4 years and I still have my issues with speech. But I wake each day, kiss my beautiful wife and am blessed to have one more day. Just relax and know that your friends are with you.
Did this make sense? I think it was positive, but I want YOUR opinion.
