Bad News


Hi all.

Had an awful week - my 18 yr old sister (non smoker) had a stroke on wednesday morning and is in a spe******t hospital in london this week where i have been with my parents...she cant speak and has minimal understanding etc.

it's been terrible. i don't even want to smoke...let this spur on smokers to stop, an 18 year old suffering from something like this when people poisoning themselves with cigarettes are walking around and talking and being normal...and smokers are the ones who are more likely to get so glad i dont smoke, i wouldn't want to risk ever having a stroke as its broken my heart seeing her there.

just thought id share.

Hi Coralie, I was touched by your post having had experience of this. She is so young but hopefully this will help her with a speedy recovery. Makes you realise how precious life is and how we take our health for granted. Good for you not having a cig, youve done really well, im sure your sister wouldnt want you to start again through what has happened. All my thoughts are with you all xxx My only niece was 6 when she had a brain tumour, she was mute for 7 weeks and then she had to learn to walk and talk again she is now 12 and has found her voice again let me tell you!! Take care hun and let us know how youre getting on x
