    Hi @colegg

    Yes I have gone from healty to bed/house/wheelchair over a number off years.

    This was due to a stroke/brain surgery's.

    The surgery's have caused more problems to date.

    Please please let me know if there is anything else that  can help you with ?????

    Hi @colegg

    Yes following my Stroke I had to re learn how to do the basic's.

    Unfortunatly I have to use electric scooters to get around & about on !!!!!!

    This is due to my chronic right sided pain.

    Yes it's like going back to school again.

    It takes a longer time though but it is well worth doing again.

    Yes staying positive is a big plus & well worth it in the long run beleive me !!!!!!
