    What is one challenge you, or your loved one, faced after leaving the hospital? Did your therapist or doctor help with that challenge?

      To all,
      I felt like Gu.
      Because of ignorance of aging and about strokes, the time which was probably was wasted and went by too quickly.
      I definitely feel that more could have been done, if I were not so ignorant.
      But that is water under the bridge. The ignorance of others should not be. Ignorance must be erased.

      I felt like being pushed off a cliff to be entirely on my own.

      Very terrifying!

      In the hospital, I was at least surrounded by doctors, nurses and
      therapists and I was aware they would be gone.

      I realized in the first few weeks how slow the recovery would be compared
      to my expectation.

      Then nurses and therapists did their best to cheer me up before the
      discharge.

      That unfortunately aggravated my fear as everything they called “what a
      great progress” fell so short of my hope and expectation.

      I could barely move my leg when they cheered.

      You call that a great job? And in a few weeks I will be sent home like this?

      That was truly depressing and stressful.
