Hi.....I am 58 years old and suffered a massive stroke, decompression of the brain and a necessity for high oxygen. I spent four months in hospital and very luckily most of it at the John Radliffe hospital. I have been at home with 24 hour care and now on my own for a few weeks. I still have Physio and occupational therapy as I tend to fall and get very tired. The most difficult thing I find is that all doctors are amazed at my progress but no-one in my direct family will talk about it. I have three children who were in Oxford for a week, a sister who visited, a mother who went into my new house and was kind in clearing it but I feel rather violated by it as she hired a skip. and many things have been 'lost'. But no-one in my family will talk to me about it. Chapter closed. No longer a problem. Really feeling rather desperate as I feel so much is held from me. And it is problem 'closed'. For them maybe, butI doubt it and definitely towards me. I feel an urgent need to talk about it......any ideas.
