I had my stroke at 18, how old were you ?

Postby oliburn93 on Tue Jul 07, 2015 1:54 pm

In 2011 i had a stroke when i was 18. I was left paralyzed on my right hand side, however i was determined that this would not hold be back. i worked hard on my recovery and as a result i have made a full recovery.

I was able to take my place at university the following September. i am currently on Placement at Different Strokes as a part of my business degree.

How old were you when you had your stroke ?
Have you returned to education or work ?

I was 50, so way older than you! I was still the youngest in the ward by 25 years though. I went back to work after 6 months and with lots of support from my employers.
