My Dad is in his 70's and suffered a massive left sided stroke almost three months ago. He has been left physically disabled which is dreadful but we are a practical family and we will make the best of it. What we are struggling with is the complete change from the person he was. I feel like the Dad I had before has gone and I worry that he will never come back. Sometimes I actually feel like I'm grieving for what we have lost even though he is still here. The person we are left with is a lovely quiet sweet old man, but he is not the sarcastic, grumpy, humorous Dad that I had for 40 years. Don't get me wrong, I am more than eternally grateful that he is still with us but I just wondered if anyone else had gone through feelings like this and how best to cope with them.
Thank you for you advice in advance
