My partner of 12 years had a stroke a year ago last May. They had told me that it was not so bad. Could have been worse they said. I believed them. You know the more time that passes the beter he is getting.
Issue is that I think it WAS worse than they thought. He continues to have balance issues, walking issues, and even his thought processes remain sometimes muddled.
I love him and am still planning to stay with him and keep him in my life. I am just frustrated the improvements are much slower to come around.
These are the improvements we have seen as far as his independence go:
*He can now use his walker to walk to the mall
*He can use the regular transit bus
*He can maintain some level of personal cleanliness
*Depression - somedays very bad.
In any case I will be there for him.
