Welcome to the Cerebrovascular Accident (Stroke) community!
It is not easy to know the path / experience of each member who has experienced a stroke or to know who to reach out to / know who is going through something similar. Trust is essential to be able to talk and share, especially in a community like this.
Therefore. we encourage all members in this group to introduce themselves... Share a little about your story, when did you experience a stroke, how has your recovery experience been, any recommendations, etc. to introduce yourself to the community!

I am Jarrod. I had my only stroke 14 months ago... It is still a struggle... I am using a cane for short walks, but really I am still using a walk because I do not have confidence in my balance and endurance. I feel like I had made good progress in the first 8 months but then I have seen my recovery slow... I am worried about how much I still have to recover from.
I hope to hear some motivational stories. Thank you for reading.

How are you today? Have you seen this older discussion?
For those of you who have experienced a stroke, can you tell us about it? What symptoms did you have? Did you realize what it was while it was happening? Were you able to get care straight away? Did you have any lingering symptoms afterwards?
