    How have you found life after having a stroke?

    Hi 👋, how are you? How are you doing? How much did stroke affect you and your life ? My mum had strokes in 2016. Now on a wheelchair, right side paralysed and left with aphasia. Does anyone support you?

    I also have Aphasia (Broca's). That happened when I had a stroke at the age of 36. I have brain fog and don't remember or have difficulties with my speech.

    I learned a lot of things from researching but I refuse to believe there's a plateau for this kind of condition. I've had it for 7 years and I noticed improvement every single year. 

    I receive PIP and ESA
