    My current impairments put a wrinkle in my hub writing.

    * Can't half see.
    * Can't walk.
    * Can't taste food well anymore.

    What a drag!

      Robert) I hope things are improving for you. Hopefully this lil story will encourage you-

      My lovely father had 5 major strokes at the age of 49. He could not talk, write and was partially paralyzed. He not only recovered his speech but went on to earn several degrees and start a new business.
      He was an encouragement to all!

      Keep up the faith that you will get better!!

    You'll do what you can and then you'll do what you can not, and then you'll do what no one did before, then you'll do what no one thinks possible to be done, and you'll be okay.
    Just stay positive. One baby step at a time.

    Wish you all the best. Be strong and exercise each day. It will get better. You are probably pushing yourself too hard. Stay strong because God has decided you are to live. You have important work to do. Be patient, work hard on your rehab. You will improve, your mind already shows me that.

    Strokes are a terrible thing to have, I had a mini stroke at the age of 26 and my drinking arm was severely effected, you just take for granted what you use your arms for, or your legs.

    I know after my little stroke I had to go on a diet of no alcohol and eating lettuce with everything for ahwile and even now I try to live a healthy lifestyle....

      Hi Waynett, my Sister had a full stroke at 27, so I know where you are coming from. She is now 45, but copes well in spite of having a slight limp on her right leg, as well as concentration problems and memory lapses. All in all she copes well, but can no longer work, (in spite of having tried to return to work). Her co-ordination is rather skewed, (right down to picking up small items with the hand on the stroke side), but she does live a good life and has fun. She does get moments where she is really down/depressed about it, but she is still here and in a far better state than many stroke victims. Don't lose heart, it does happen to young people too (as you know), but at least their bodies are better able to adapt at a younger age than an older person's.

    Thanks for replies.

    Healing is indeed slow for a body that does not last that long naturally.  If we lived forever, then setbacks would not be possible, because we would have forever to do or recover from anything.  Mortality can be inconvenient, in this respect.

    All your encouragement is appreciated.
