In 2013 at 25 years old I suffered a stroke, initially I was misdiagnosed with an anxiety attack due to my age and as the symptoms progressed 24 hours later an MRI revealed a blood clot on my brain, with a combination of reasons such as lifestyle, hereditary Hypertension, stress etc., however this was only a speculation and no known cause was ever found.
As a result of the stroke my left side was paralyzed and with extensive therapy I recovered the ability to walk, not completely recovered I live a fully functional life with my disability.
It’s been a challenging journey accepting the loss of certain abilities, adjusting to my “new norm” and still continuing to thrive both personal and professional and just the realization of how we take wellness for granted and the impact it has making healthier choices such as dieting, exercising and general time out.
Even after such a tragic experience I still fail daily and the Sad reality is health you cannot regenerate or purchase however small changes can have a positive influence on living a vigorous life.
