PT teaching the brain right & left…

I have always had some kind of minor issue with doing certain tasks since I was around 14 or 15 years old…

The PT had me do an exercise with a weight in my hand and I had to do it like a figure “S” movement… 

I did okay for the right side of the exercise… but the left side, the disconnect between the brain and the limb was obvious…

Someone please explain how I walked through the last 50 years of life and not know I had a stroke!!! and I asked… I asked Freda and I told Peggy and both lied!!!!!!!!!!! UGH!!!! lots of cuss words, if those two women were any place close to me, they would have to have armed guards!!!!!!! enough rant…

When I talked about basic training and how we had to do the obstacle course to graduate from basic and I had stepped off on my left leg and grabbed the rope with my left arm & hand, I knew something was off, I just never thought in a million years in 1977, that I had a stroke 10 years earlier!!!!

The young lady at PT, mentioned the disconnect between the brain and the limbs… now that I am facing the reality of the fact I did have a stroke and was never told and I have no memory yet of all that went down… and since Peggy & Freda are using their 5th amendment right, much like all criminals do…

This is part of the journey will be educational… I had compartment syndrome in my left leg and when the surgeon released the nerve that was trapped, things got a little better, my left ankle quit giving out on me… If I had to hazard a guess, PT would have been a better choice than surgery… VA did not do its job, before that procedure and really they didn’t, no pre-evaluation or testing… see the surgeon and got scheduled… sigh…that was Nov 2011… damn a lot happens in the month of November!!! Superstitious??? lol

I have been doing the exercises and I have been on the elliptical multiple times… working towards building strength and communication between my brain and body…. parts of me hurt in ways, they shouldn’t and I know it’s the nerves and muscles building the communication it needs to function… boy this is so not fun…

How in the world do you send a kid off in life and not tell them they had a stroke????

Who in their right mind, does not tell a kid, when they get pregnant or go in the military… oh, by the way, at 13 you suffered a stroke and just a FYI your sister strangled you once!!!!

How the hell do you as a person do this to your own child???

Oh,  yea…. You are a christian…. enough said…
