This last 18 months I felt as if I had my life as I knew it, taken away from me. The strokes have robbed me so much of my previous life. Now after months of being in a very dark and dank place. I feel as though I am slowly clawing my life back. It’s going to be a very long journey but if I take it one day at a time I will get there.
I feel at last people are listening to our pleas when we say we are not coping. This week has been a very positive week and all the appointments have had a positive spin on them. I have finally been referred for an OT and Physiotherapy assessment as my doctor saw how much my mobility has gone downhill. Hopefully this assessment will lead to us getting a walk in shower which will be a massive help as I can’t manage getting in and out the bath anymore.
We have also been referred for some more help and support , someone who is going to support the WHOLE family not just the children. I hope that as things change and I claw my life back that I will be able to share with you more positive news.
