Reclaim, Recover, Revive: My Stroke Recovery Story

I've had this book swirling around inside of me for years. In the first year of my stroke recovery, it was so difficult to talk about, let alone write about. I was still in the process of healing emotionally from having my entire life swiped out from under me. It was too personal and raw for me to share with others.

In the last year, since moving to Arizona, life has finally taken an upswing. Every night for the past few months, as I lie in bed, ready to fall asleep, I've been outlining my stroke recovery story in my mind.

Yesterday the outline hit paper and it works. I'm in the process of writing it all out now.

Remembering the details of everything I did that worked, things I did that did Not work, has been a process. (I wish I had kept a journal!) If you are recovering now, keep a journal. It is wisdom you'll forget. Our brains do not work like they used to. I used to be able to recall almost any detail from my life. Now, details do not have the same glue that they once had.

I'm excited to see how long it will take me to purge all this information out. There is so much I have to say that has never been said. Most medical professionals seem to write us survivors off, like our lives are over. When I was told I'd never walk, again, I refused to accept that without any kind of hesitation. I only wish they would keep their limiting opinions to themselves because there are people who believe them.

If you are looking for something new and positive to believe in, it's coming. I did recover. You can, too. I'll show you how I did it.
