So sorry to learn of your difficult situation.
I had a right lacunar stroke in December 2015. It was unmistakable as I was paralysed whilst sleeping.
I was in hospital for just 5 days, MRi scan showed a small infarct. My wife was willing to care for me and we live in a bungalow with toilet adjacent to bedroom. So I was discharged at just 5 days then had a whole team of excellent nurses, doctors, counsellors and physios who came to my home for six weeks. So at the end of the six weeks I was recovering. I had my written diagnosis. I was in touch with my GP. There was a three month review at hospital, by the consultant. Then a six month review by a clerical assistant. I am telling you all this because I think you might need to see where you stand on the NHS procedures. They do however vary from area to area.
So a diagnosis is the first thing you are missing. Your GP staff might be able to give a copy of the diagnosis.
We all have different strokes, no two are the same. There are lots of common factors.
Paralysis doesnt always occur. It depends on which part of your brain is damaged.
The cognitive stuff varies a lot. Depression is common. Emotionality is common. And many other features likewise. Hearing and vision issues are common. And language issues.
It is not surprising that, at about 7 months, you still have depression, poor sleep, emotionality and loss of memory.
You can ease all these things, I take them one by one.
There is no cure and probably no treatment. Part of your brain, however small, is dead and it will not regrow. But that same brain is marvellous and it will rewire around the dead bits (neuroplasticity). You can then lead a new life.
I would urge you to contact any local stroke groups (again your GP staff should help) and go to some of their meetings.
It was pointed out to me, quite correctly, that if we go to sleep with stroke tiredness then we wake up with it. Might partly explain your issues in the mornings.
Lacunar are areas deep inside the brain.
I am sure you have picked up on the need to rest. So much rest is needed.
And its only you who can effect recovery. No one else can do it for you.
Recovery has two speeds. Slow and very slow.
Well I think I have hurled too much info at you so I will wish you well.
Smile four times a day.
You are not alone. lots of us are here willing to help.
