Sep 24, 2018 · Stroke in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

There really isn't much to say about my recovery. I was given the aspirin regimen and told to take it easy for awhile until I recovered my balance and my mind cleared. There was no physical, occupational, or speech therapy needed. The biggest issue is that the emergency room did not accurately diagnose or admit me. They assumed that my lack of balance, difficulty with using my good hand, and temporary speech impediment were due to my Cerebral Palsy. When they didn't properly diagnose or treat me, I immediately went to my Internist's office. As my doctor's office was very familiar with my normal medical conditions, and the difference as to my condition that day, they knew immediately, as I did, that I had a stroke.

As far as helping you to get in and out of cars, look on the internet for car swivel cushions. You can even do a car seat swivel cushion rating and reviews search so you can compare the cushions and see which one might work best for you. They mostly cost less than $30 and are portable so you can move them from car to car. For your husband's car, it can be modified with a handle to help you get in or there are automatic car seats that will extend out from the car and retract once you are seated. They are expensive but your insurance may pay for the modification. I would also contact your local Center For Independent Living and see if they can provide assistance.

Yes, I am a high functioning stroke victim. I had my stroke about 1 1/2 years ago. I was also born with Cerebral Palsy. If you need daily assistance, contact your local United Way information and referral service, call a local In Hpme Assistance Agency, or ask your doctor for a referral. Assuming that you have insurance, contact your insurance company and ask for an evaluation for personal assistance.

The first place I would start is to find your local Center For Independent Living, if you live in the US. They have access to government grants to make modifications to your home. Then, if you need modifications to your house, and you are working or employable and you need the modifications in order to work, contact your local Vocational Rehabilitation office.
