Don't be a victim!


Easy for others to say ,try my best , ANY ADVICE. Thanks David. 

You're not a victim you're a survivor. All you can do is your best. Keep doing your best. Then do it again. And again. You'll get there. Wherever that is...... 

Thanks Pamela, 6 years on ? % wise how do you think you have improved each year. Thanks David. 

Hmm. Difficult one to answer. The changes happen so gradually over time. Let me think....

OK. This time last year I was just starting to walk without my FES (functional electrictrical system) for foot drop. OK indoors but needed it outdoors. Now I can walk short distances without it outdoors too. Left affected hand was trying to use a fork but I found it very tiring. Now I can manage most meals using a knife and fork but 'wet' food can still be a bit difficult.

10% improvement year on year....

Pamela , thanks & well done . Good talking David. 

I am sorry to say but I don’t like the label victim and survivor as I think that these labels do not apply to stroke people , but only to other things ,for example car crash victim and car crash survivor.
I preferrer something like warrior etc
