@TootieB Hi Kelly, welcome to the forum although very sorry to hear you’ve had a stroke. It’s a lot to take in especially as you’re so young. Take your time to absorb what has happened.

There’s lots of advice & support on this forum. Hope you find it as useful as I have.

Wishing you all the best.

I’m 39 had a minor stroke last week too.

It is my left leg which has been effected.

Wishing you luck in your recovery!

Hi @RaksP up and down days tbh , thank you for checking in.

I hope you are well in yourself also

Hi TootieB, when I phoned Stroke Helpline shortly after coming out of hospital I said I’ve had mild stroke, not a bad one, woman on line pulled me up with jolt ! All strokes are bad your lucky you’ve have no major disability. So that’s the way I view my Stroking now. Sounds like me , we were blessed but it’s still a hill to climb and difficult at times to keep whistling. Good luck to you on this unasked for journey Paul


Ive never seen it that way, i feel like because i was lucky i dont have the right to not be 100% because of my stroke.
But its so simple all strokes are bad! Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:
