Hi David,

I'm sorry to hear about your strokes. It must have been such a challenging time for you. Recovery is ongoing, and there's lots of information out there that can support you. On My Stroke Guide, in the advice and information section, there's different topics which I hope may give some guidance. It includes managing emotions and help with mobility: https://mystrokeguide.com/advice-and-information 

There's also a video about dropfoot and physiotherapy on this page: https://mystrokeguide.com/advice-and-information/physical/mobility
