Stroke just happened no warning signs:
I was healthy no signs of this coming on interestingly though I did have a dream of my headaches blowing up couple days before I had the stroke and it was a week before that that I had this dream of exploring.
Also, I thought of an old friend of mine from college who I have not thought of in a very long time … whose father she told me had the signs the stroke and they brought him the hospital caught in time. Why would I just think of that… ?
People just did not have understanding of how to relate to me my illness:
They either left me frustrated and would communicate with me as if how could I have changed strangely
Aphasia – which is a language disorder which may also are hard time to communicate with people because they do not understand aphasia either. Hello look it up and do not take everything personally. I am the same person just with different needs at the present time.
Living in the independent living facility:
Was okay sometimes but other times it was so degrading, uncomfortable and downright ridiculous. Sometimes I wondered who had the brain injury.
Moving back home:
This was hard because I had after my first strokes I had I had four more six months later they wanted to move back to the Dr. said is better that it be close by family. This was a tough move neurologically physically emotionally financially you name it became with it. But it has turned out to be a true blessing.
Living at the YWCA for year:
Had a lot of blessings to have someplace to live but it was a sure terror. It’s infested with mice. The People there were great. But you had to survive on your own the management where very abusive. That was most of the terror.
Trying to find the right medical people to help me my condition:
this is not easy. But as I said above I wonder who has the brain injury .
