Before, I used to be a whole, but now I feel crushed. I felt like a whole person before my stroke. After the stroke, I felt like my brain and heart were not working like they used to. Before the stroke, I used to feel like I was very smart. After stroke, I felt as if I was back to square one. I used to know 5 languages, now I only know one. I used to speak Guarani, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian. Now I only understand English. When I had a stroke, I felt like there was no more Jesus.
