This month is National Stroke Awareness Month. I feel so strongly about sharing the warning signs of stroke since I suffered mine in July 2014 that I want to continue to share whatever information I can. No one should ever have to go through one and they happen at all ages. They say that 1 – 6 people will suffer a stroke in their lifetime and that is one too many!
While I continue to struggle with my right side and my brain is still numb (like a visit to the dentist) some days are better then others. The barometric pressure really plays havoc with me (especially when it is going to rain) and on those days I have learned not to push myself. Often, it feels like I am drunk when I am not. If the brain and my motor skills refuse to cooperate – no sense in getting even more frustrated with the situation.
My mission this month (besides sharing stroke awareness) is to lose some weight! I have gained quite a few pounds from not being as mobile. I am nearing the two year mark since my stroke happened and also of being smoke free!
Bless you all for being so supportive during my journey! xoxoxoxo
I was honored to be asked to share my story recently and the post is featured on this web site:
I hope you will find the information useful and come stop by!
