hi my name is Alessandra and I’m 42 from wales, I had a stroke in 2013 and I’m a type 2 diabetic with mental health issues. I have no friends and no one to talk to about anything. I have recently been shoved on uc and I’m worse off than ever. My partner has trigeminal neuralgia and is currently off work sick.

    Hi @mrsboffin

    “No Probs”

    Yes mine was a full one caused by an “Bleed in my Brain”

    “In Spain 1998”

    It has caused me big problems ever since!!!

    Yes you will find many  members who be very happy in helping you.

    Wow! I bet that was difficult, having something like that happen in a foreign country... how old were you? I was 38. Have you been left with any lasting issues? I have to use a stick now as I can’t walk very far at all

    Hi @mrsboffin

    Yes it was our first day on holiday.

    It was worse for my wife initially as she had also got our two year old son by herself.

    Yes I was 38 at the time as well.

    Wow yes the Stroke effected my left hand side.

    I have also had further problems with my right hand side since.

    How about you??????
