Hello Bev and welcome. We are all in the same boat here. I have found it a good place to give and receive help. Living with the effects of stroke is a learning experience and as time goes by I am learning more coping strategies.

Welcome Bev. I had a Brain Haemorrage over 2 years ago. I only joined this forum a week ago. I wish I’d joined 2 years ago. It is full of help, advice and nice sympathetic people helping each other out. My last 2 years would have been easier if I’d been a party to all the advice and help here. I am sure you will find this site a great source of comfort knowing you are not isolated and alone. Good health and best wishes to you on your recovery.

@kermit69 welcome Bev and sorry you had a stroke.
It’s early days for you yet just take it easy. Plenty of rest and fluids.

You will find our forum a great place to be, with some very special stroke survivors.

Kind wishes Loraine

At 6wks is early days. Things may change which will generally be for the good but don’t be disheartened if there are some hiccups on the journey :slight_smile:
