Hello I am new here and I had my stroke on 31st of May. A haemorrhagic stroke I believe caused by high blood pressure. Everyone tells me that my recovery has been fantastic I am able to walk from room to room using FES. I don't have any voluntary movement in my arm and luckily, my speech, reasoning and memory seem to be unaffected. I know it is crucial to stay positive and determined to keep going but I am starting to feel as though my strength is ebbing away. A couple of days ago I reflected that if I did have another stroke I wouldn't want to survive it as I feel this life is difficult to live. I know people work through and achieve amazing things so I'm looking for some tips on how to keep going. I have very supportive family friends and colleagues so I can't ask for any more in that direction. I only want to be able to do simple things independently such as go to my allotment, cook a meal or walk to the pub surely that isn't too much to ask.
