    Hello @jan1953 Welcome to the Community. If you have any questions please ask. I am sorry to hear you have been having strokes. Do you have a support network in place. I have never had a stroke but I am sure other members who have with be in touch. Have a look around and join in with us. Take care.

    Hi @jan1953 and a warm welcome to our online community, how's your Thursday going?

    I'm sorry to hear you've had a few strokes and the last one was particularly bad. Do you have aftercare from the Stroke Team or your GP? And how's it left you feeling?

    We do have some members who've had a stroke, if you want to take a look through our Physical and neurological impairments category you might be able to relate to their stories. While there's the Stroke Association too where you can find support in your local area.

    I hope you continue to recover well and if you need anything, please let us know. Take care!
