 childhood abuse (my story using rhyme)

survivor of stroke


S- speech went funny
T-  time was
R- running out
O- over hearing panic
K- knowing it was serious without a doubt
E- even now a headache scares me to the core

S- seeing stars
U- usually makes me worry even more
R  really striving on
V- very winding roads going nowhere
I- in a hurry
V- vital to know the signs
O- only knowing I'm improving
R- reassuring I  survived

think FAST
F--face  ( has there face dropped)
A- arm  (is one arm weaker than the other?)
S- speech( is their speech slurred?)
t-time   ring an ambulance ASAP if you see any of these signs you may not just save the persons life but save  the person from losing too much also) xxx


On the 23rd of  December 2010 aged just 25  home alone with my 8 year old daughter i collapsed onto the floor following a servear migraine, lucky for me my daughter  was very wise and quick thinking she called for help which in doing so she saved 60% of my brain, i was taken into hospital at the right time and early enough for doctors to save as much as they could, i have lost all use of my left arm but i have learnt to walk again after intense physio and tender release surgery on my left ankle and a foot fusion, i work on my arm daily  to try and get movement back, its nearly four years on  and the arm just doesn't seem to be coming back but i won't give up cos, i am a fighter xxx
