Meet Lauren who suffered a stroke at the age of 23. Lauren had an ischemic stroke due to 3 little holes in her heart she was born with, something that wouldn't have been found if she hadn't had her stroke. Isn't it scary how you can go through your whole life not knowing that there is an underlying condition hiding in your body? I'm so happy that Lauren is doing well. In reading her post, I couldn't help but feel good. Despite all she's been through, Lauren's smile shines brightly through her post.
She is so strong and refuses to fall into the "why me?" slump. I wish her nothing but the best on her road to recovery. You can read all about Lauren's brave story HEREI love this quote from her post.
"I need to have the discipline to embrace what has happened to me and get past it."-Lauren
You wear your badge of stroke honor proudly, Lauren! Welcome to the strokie club!
