  1. Hi Christine,

    I had a stroke when I was 36. I developed a clot in my carotid artery (right side) which traveled to my brain. I was at home when it happened. I all of a sudden couldn’t process things, had a horrible horrible headache, and I couldn’t seem to get up off of the floor all of a sudden. I was able to call 911 for myself…with the help of my 5 year old. She was able to bring my phone to me. I was treated by a stroke team at Emory University Hospital. They gave me TPA and I regained all feeling on my left hand side immediately….amazingly. I don’t get to talk about my experience often. Most people my age can’t fathom going through something like this, and they don’t realize how lucky, blessed I am to be alive. No one can look at me and tell that I’ve had a stroke. They have no idea what I’ve been through. Three months before my stroke my mother died from cancer…very quickly. My father is deceased as well. So, I’m in this world feeling kind of alone. I have a sister but she’s married and has her life to live.

    I just wanted to share this since I know you can relate. My life has new meaning and I’m trying my best to live to my fullest potential. I can tell that you feel that same feeling. If you know of any resources/support groups that might help me please let me know. If you have a moment please reach out to me. I’m so thankful that I stumbled across your story. Take care of yourself and your child.
