I can't believe this happened to me at 24

I'm so sad I just had a stroke about a week ago. Although I'm thankful to be alive I just feel like this is so unfair I have no medical problems ever and now I'm basically partially paralyses in my left arm. Thank god for my super husband because I can barely take care of our 9 month old son my arm has gotten a lot better since the initial stroke. I can move it but I have very little control when I'm try to specifically complete a task like wrap my hair, put it in a ponytail fold laundry, dress my son and a lot more. I'm going to physical and occupational therapy twice a week. I askfor your prayers in my recovry ladies. I refuse to stay like this at this tender age I feel like all of my dreams are now impossible I'm in nursing school and now have doubts that I'll ever be able to actually become a nurse with one arm. I definitely have faith. What upsets me most is that the drs have no explanation as to how this happened I'm lost for words. Any words of encouragement would be greatly appretiated

Hang in there momma.  I'm sure they'll figure out why it happened and how to make sure it won't happen again.

It takes some time to recuperate. Continue with physical therapy and you will see improvement. Sending you lots of positive thoughts for continued recovery.
