    I had two ischemic strokes in 2015. So 7 years ago March and June. I am permanently disabled with right side weakness, neuropathy, spasms and pain. I walk with a limp and a cane now. But I am walking. I have cognitive difficulties at time, but I am learning how to strengthen my cognitive abilities. Keep moving, choose a better diet, realize you are a newer person. It's okay to not be okay all the time. Cry about it and then wipe your tears and keep going. I'm taking care of myself by myself since being widowed 2021. I also take care of a house, yard, and 3 dogs. I have a few limits, but that just drives me to think outside the box and try harder. I am stronger than I think I am.
