Being a Stroke Survivor, I felt compelled to create this blog as a way of giving thanks to you all and pay forward my experience of having a life changing stroke and my road to recovery.
To my friends, family, caregivers and folks interested in my personal recovery, I want to say Thank You!
Thanks for your diligence in caring for me, thanks for your prayers, thanks for your kind thoughts and generous donations during this time in my life.
I feel truly blessed!

I didn't think I could but now realize I can. I have no choice in the matter.
It is said that all things happen for a reason and that "when one door closes another door opens."
I have found this to be true many times in my life.
Recovery after a stroke is not easy to put it lightly but with the support system that I'm fortunate to have,
I GOT THIS!
I always try to stay positive about life and keep a positive attitude even during a tough time like this.
In terms of recovery, I find it to be 80% mental and 20% physical. With God's grace, occupational and physical therapy,
I'll make a full recovery!
My daily routine goes like this
I spend time reading the bible for spiritual strength in the mornings,
then eat a nutritional breakfast paying close attention to sodium, sugar cholesterol and fat intake,
Give thanks for the new day and
go about my daily exercises, chores and work.
I've also started taking CBD supplements to aid in healing, focus, sleeping and energy. They really help me a lot but do your own research I'm not a health professional.
