This is a story of the beginning of stroke recovery. On September 7, 2016 I suffered a moderate stroke that completely paralyzed my left side. This is my effort to chronicle the early stages of my recovery and my wholehearted attempt to defeat this stroke and fully recover to being "normal".This third edition contains some additional content/stories. Contains some dark humor and maybe troubling content that may not be suitable for children or people who don't appreciate humor in the darkness. Written as a personal narrative from a survivor's point of view, not a medical guide to stroke recovery.
