I Only Went To Make A Cup Of Coffee

The other night I walked into the kitchen to make a cup of coffee for my husband. Nothing unusual about that is there? It was what happened whilst I was in the kitchen.

I came out of the kitchen struggling to hold the cup ( which again isn’t unusual) however it was how I was talking. Imagine how numb your mouth is when you have been to the dentist, well that was me. Except I hadn’t been to the dentist, yet my right side of my mouth had gone numb. I actually had bite my tongue and usually it hurts but nothing no pain, no sensation.

It seems the monster inside of me had reared its head again and had caused me to have yet another mini stroke, even though I was just making a cup of coffee. Strokes can happen anytime and anywhere. There is no warning. Tell me how do I explain to the kids mummy can’t talk at the moment she’s had a stroke. I only went to make a cup of coffee.
