    Welcome to the community @mylo :) It's nice to meet you!

    Thank you for sharing a little about your experiences. I'm sorry to hear that you've been struggling with your mental health recently. Is that something you're receiving any support for at the moment? 

    In what way would you say having a stroke has impacted your mental health?

    I've moved your post into our mental health and wellbeing category, and tweaked the title, so that you can connect with others who might have had a similar experience to you.
