The challenge for me was reminding people that I had a stroke and couldn’t do what I use to from dancing and being turned because of headaches or even a friend determined that I could manage her political campaign. People seeing me and insisting that I am the same. Acceptance has been a challenge for friends and family. Initially there were those who felt my life was super consumed in stroke, as an advocate and educator. They didn’t come around as much, but as soon as a love one has a stroke, they call. I have loss some friends and made new ones. It balances out.
