My Stroke Story - Lora Ashley.

: Pensacola, Florida

: I have had a total of three strokes. I had to learn to walk & talk again. I was on a walker, then quad cane, then a cane. Speach and physical therapists came to my home after being released from the hospital. I was left with a heart condition. and also had surgery for a cancerous condition. I don't drink, nor smoke. A lot of people don't make it through strokes, or end up blind. I was lucky not to have lost my vision, or my life. Many stroke victims have problems with depression..I have found that taking large dosages of vitamins B-12 and B-6 help a great deal.Along with an aspirin in morning and one at night. I do have to take prescribed medicines also.
