#YouAreNotAlone

As mortifying as this is for me and as vulnerable that I feel doing this; I don't think I can call this blog an honest portrayal of life after stroke if I don't share this.  Without the Help to Recover program at Easter Seals I would have no idea how common bladder and muscle control problems really are.  It would be the end of the world.  Even with my new knowledge and daily proof that I'm not alone and dealing with rare effects, it took me much longer than necessary to accept that adult diapers are a part of my journey (for now), and it only effects the way I view myself; not the way anyone else sees me. #Youarenotalone #avmstrokesurvivor. #Strokesurvivor
