I wonder how long does it take until we settle in to our new lives. And how much time passes.
My physical recovery was about four years, but was interupted by heart problems. But i assume four or five years would be physical recovery.
Then there is the ageing process. I certainly aged a few years immediately after stroking. Maybe three years.
Finally there is the memory loss. Initially i thought my memory had been wiped for the three months before stroke. I keep diaries so i could look back to what i had forgotten. I now realize that memory has been deleted for at least one or two years.
These issues will start to hit the news when "long covid" becomes apparent.
New normal is a phrase i never heard before stroke. Now its being used. Why is it long covid, whereas post stroke doesnt even have a title. Long stroke ?
so any suggestions. I was 68 when stroking started. Will i have aged ten years before i rejoin my trashed life ? Or twenty years or two years.
