Thank you to everyone who has posted their own experiences of post stroke symptoms both physical and emotional. I suffered a stroke on 1st September and was fortunate to have a very good team of physio and O/T who discharged me after 5 weeks. My left side has improved and I can walk, even if veering to the left, but my left arm still feels quite heavy. I have managed to keep possitve but recently my fatigue has been really bad and I am feeling quite down, then I came across The stroke Association and all your comments have made me feel so much better as I now realise what I am am suffering is normal! Thank you to you all, I don't feel on my own now. I hope you all make a good recovery!
