what does Stroke to Success mean? August 24, 2017 by Suzy WigstadtImagine looking down at your right arm – squeezing it with your left hand – not feeling a thing. Like Novocaine – all you feel is puffiness in your left hand. You wonder if your right hand is yours. then You go to speak, you know what you want to say and a mumbled version that sounds NOTHING like what you meant to say comes out. Imagine the panic. You say a prayer, “not now — Please not now!!” You realize it’s happening again. There is nothing you can do to stop it. And it will take a few days to recover. You’ll go through a splitting hemiplegic migraine and come out on the other side – normal – and get back to your crazy life that you’re living for everyone but yourself… Things don’t get back to normal like you thought they would. Like every other time this has happened. I T ‘ S A S T R O K E. This time is different!! This is a part of my story. I don’t imagine it – I remember it! I can go back to it like a movie. It plays over and over in my head. Like a movie!! I had the mindset and ability of a newborn baby. I literally had to relearn everything. I felt safe with my family and KNEW they were MINE!! They spent 24/7 with me for 3 months straight!! They had no clue the SUZY I would be down the road. They didn’t know if taking care of me daily would be the normal – or if I would recover. They had faith and determination to do everything possible for me!! Stroke to Success means confidence strength determination a knowledge that there is MORE stepping up to BE who we’re meant to be focusing on what WE CAN DO bring LIFE speak LIFE No matter where you’ve been or what you’ve been through YOU ARE EXACTLY WHO YOUR WORLD NEEDS!!
