      Hazel, you have my deepest sympathy.
      I've known folk who have had strokes recently, some have made remarkable recoveries to the extent that if you didn't know you wouldn't know.
      It's hard but you do need to remain positive. If you can no longer afford the therapy google "stroke therapy at home" there does seem to be a lot out there.

      I must go to bed now but I shall have good thoughts for you and watch out for you.
