@christine2 sorry to hear you’re feeling emotional. It’s really common to be like that. I always feel like I can burst into tears over nothing in particular. Hope the tooth isn’t causing you any pain.
Take care & hope you feel better soon xxx

Sorry to hear that @christine2, I think your reaction is totally rational, it’s really tough having other challenges and problems thrown into the mix of post stroke. It’s not something us stroke survivors need as we tackle everything else we must deal with. I hope the dentist can resolve the issue at a reasonable price.

Oh Christine, this does happen I’m afraid. Everything post stroke is very testing and we can get frustrated over the simplest things. Try to relax more and take short rests during the day. Talk to your gp if you feel things are getting out of control. Counselling may help.

Thank you all for your kind words and reassurance . Feeling better now and hubby took me out for a cream tea this afternoon . My tooth isn’t giving me pain atm so I’m grateful for that . Hopefully the dentist will sort me out next week .


Oh now theres an idea…cream tea on prescription :yum::yum::yum::yum:


THanku all again for your replies I’ve got appointment at dentist tomoz afternoon . I played on my stroke a bit to get in … naughty I know .

@christine2 glad you’ve got an appointment. Don’t blame you for playing on your stroke a bit. Hope it’s nothing too costly for you. Xx

Thanku all again for your replies :relaxed: Bin to the dentist and got a temporary filling now next appointment not til the 15 December :flushed: but at least it’s not giving me pain touchwood.


I had my stroke in April and thought i was doing so well , i went back to work after being off since my stroke and yesterday went to the supermarket on my lunch as i was getting to my car my right leg lost all feeling resulting on me falling with the worst fall im black and blue all over , i returned to work and didnt mention it as my employer was trying to pay me off saying im not fit to work , sat there in agony came home that night and burst into tears , life is cruel at time but we shake it off and face another day xx
