…I was discovered by my wife lying on the floor at around 9pm…and so my stroke journey began.
I just got back from a 2 mile walk down to town and I think I may just about have fooled a few people into thinking there was nothing wrong with me. Probably didn’t notice the concentration on my face as I thought about lifting my toes so my numb foot comes down correctly. Hopefully didn’t see my clenched left hand that subconsciously balls up when I’m paying all my attention to my walking. But due to my reasonable speed and only slight limp (it was a good day) I could have passed for “normal”.
I’m back at work (4 days a week) & coping pretty well with it (apart from the horrendous fatigue). My dominant left hand is still pretty numb but I can use the feedback from the lower parts of my fingers to help my brain understand what the hand is doing (to some extent).
So in summary I have to say I am doing pretty well and would like to give some hope to others out there that, whilst progress slows down considerably after the first few months, I can definitely tell that I am still improving.
Version 2.1 and counting!
Here’s to version 2.3.
I certainly found the last 6 months or so since I started interacting on this forum to have helped the journey a lot, so thanks to you all.
All the best.
