Comment from: Carol, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: July 08

Unfortunately after several days of symptoms I had a stroke affecting my right leg, right arm, partial mouth and speech. Therapy for rehabilitation was started and prescriptions for blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood thinner. It has been 2 years and working at recovery. There have been ups and downs, 2 steps ahead and 1 step back, and other physical problems. I have also worked with acupuncture, and therapeutic massage. The mental state of depression and exasperation are a challenge!
