I am in the UK. I was very, very fit, ran, lived at the gym, windsurfed & kart raced. I had a very, very bad stroke in March 04, I was 42. I nearly died, which is an effect! Lol.
Now in a wheelchair, speach is very, very bad & I am virtually paralysed. I wrote a 68,000 word book, which I cannot advertise here.
Doctors said I would just have eye movement. I believe I am still recovering.
