  • The nightmare begins 29th March 2001 when I had a stroke.

    I felt unwell and colleagues drive to me to hospital A&E department about 11am; we spent hours at the waiting room.

    Next day I lost speech and the movement down on the right side, I found quite frankly very frightening.
    With all the problems in my body two things, I wanted first to talk and second to walk.

    Recovery from a stroke begins in hospital, they did tests, scans also; I underwent daily physiotherapy and slowly regained some use in my arm and leg

    It was a slow progress I was very determined to start getting better.
    I was in hospital for three week; Returning home gave me family support.

  • I have developed right side hemiparesis and I am troubled by reduced strength and sensation in my right hand and arm. I remains moderate dysphasic (speech and language impairment and disability)

  • A stroke changed the lives our family forever. We went through their dark days and now, we focusing on the future

    But, I came home from hospital it devastating to realise how our lives had to change as I have to communicated by

    My GP visit me once, and community nurses visit twice, never met a Social worker
    I attended the Speech and language therapist twice a week, for a year. I had problems with swallowing, talking, reading and writing.
    I receive support, friends, family and my ten-year daughter.
    I was disappointed had I have limited support from physiotherapists for six weeks (once a week).
    Every day I exercise to improve muscle strength and waking. I was not satisfied with my progress because of ongoing fatigue, muscle weakness, pain and stiffness. I exercise morning, midday and evening. I was essentially I want to walk again.

    Getting your life back after having a stroke can be hard work and a slow process.

    The family (three children) had to change. We no longer had our income and our life style had to alter. I could not assess to my bank account, my daughter write letters, deal with bills and mortgages.

    After the first spurt of recovery after a stroke, improvements are gradual and this can be frustrating for everyone.

    Preventing a second stroke
    By making healthy lifestyle changes such as exercising regularly, making healthy dietary changes; managing blood pressure and cholesterol levels; and controlling weight.

    My blood is thick, to check every 2 weeks - every month, two month, twice a year to once a month

    I establish a Newham stroke club in 2008.

    The themes are Fitness, Campaigning, information, Leisure, Social, Contact

    Currently we have 173 members and approximately, 60 who attend on a regular basis and membership is increasing.
