Stroke Changes a Person
A stroke changes a person. There's no doubt about that! So who was I before my 2/23/07 hemmoragic stroke? Here is a thumbnail sketch: 7th grade math teacher and department chair most of whose leisure time was occupied with physical activity. I was a gym junkie. Hitting free weights and intense cardio training 5 days/week. I was able to bench press my body weight. I was an avid cross country skier in the winter, a hiker & mountain biker in the summer. I was strong and loved it! That all changed when I became left-side hemeplegic from my stroke.
