I feel compelled to thank all of you who welcomed my arrival back to Manchester. And I thought this e-paper (ClayCoNews) was the correct conduit to do so.
My stroke debilitated the portion of my brain that controls my muscular functions, such as walking (my balance is quite attrocious).
My mind portion, that controls emotion was severely damaged, but thankfully that has improved considerably. At first my short term memory was damaged. I almost had to write my name backwards on the mirror so I would remember myself!
