I often quote "every stroke is different, but we share many common issues." Boy you are the xact example. So much rings true, and incredibly well written, but so much is very different from my experience.
what comes over in particular is the need for a positive attitude.
My mum has had a stroke recently and this has given me hope, and to remind myself and her to always remain positive. Every stroke is different but with a postive mindset who knows what may happen. Thank you for sharing Mathew and MASSIVE congratulations on your recovery so far! Keep it up!
