Driving by Tanya

How do you feel normal after a stroke. You don’t feel normal after a stroke. But, I feel normal When driving. After my stroke i Was not driving. Because my doctor told me not to.

Three months after my stroke I was ready to drive. My Occupational therapist said there is a driver’s program. I am lucky. Stroke survivors may take years to drive again or may never drive again.

I had a problem with right and left before my stroke. After my stroke i could not distinguish between right and left. I remember my RIGHT hand that is a tool. I got my license corrected. This means that I cannot use GPS.

I am driving and I feel normal.
