Roadlion ,

So helpful! I am a stroke victim too.

I had a hemorrhagic stoke in 2014, followed by a liver rupture from being given too much heparin. It was a rough ride with a fair amount of aphasia that has taken years to fully be restored. But the process was fascinating. There were moments when I could feel my brain repairing itself. And early in a lot of interesting intuitive stuff. (Left brain was affected so I believe the right side became more fully active to compensate.) Anyway, thank you again for a wonderful podcast.
